Ng’onga a doubt for Sudan clash

Zambia national team may once again go into another match without striker Alex Ng’onga who suffered a muscle sprain during Zambia’s opening group B match against Uganda.

National team doctor Mwila Lupashi believes Ng’onga needs more time to shake off the injury and will not be rushed into training it may aggravate his injury.

“Alex is still recuperating from the injury that he sustained, it will take a bit of time because the type of injury that he has we have to be careful even making him train,” Lupashi told FAZfootball.com .

Lupashi has eased concerns over Midfielder Kondwani Mtonga who trained away from the main group, Which he said was just a precautionally measure.

“We had a few injuries when we played against Namibia. They are just usual knocks as happens in football. I can safely say that all the players who had those knocks have recuperated except for Kondwani Mtonga as you saw I was training with him. It was a precautionary light training for him but otherwise he is generally okay,” he said.

Wedson Nyirenda and his technical bench have revived a big boost as Power Dynamos midfielder Godfrey Ngwenya has returned to full team training after missing all of Chipolopolo’s group games.

“Like I said two days ago, he (Ngwenya) has made tremendous recovery so today I wanted him to do full training with the rest of the players and so far so good he has done very well. I just hope that he is going to be considered for the next game against Sudan.”

Zambia and Sudan will lock horns on Saturday for a place in the semi-finals and a step closer to lifting the trophy

  1. Nice news on Ngwenya ,I feel he can bring stability in the midfield if he fully recovers as he is a good attacking player who is not new to international football as he represented Zambia in Niger once if not twice for the airtel rising stars team and he plays some good football

  2. km says:

    Yes looking forward to watch him

  3. Zambian Bufallo says:

    Thats good news for the team, Ngwenya is better than Larry and also the has height advantage.

  4. Mufana says:

    I do hope that the coach will not use the same tactics we saw with Namibia, I think it was “kick and chase the ball” tactic.

  5. Lubbs says:

    Shamujomba for Silwimba ,not so?2consecutive yellow cards?

  6. Sibs says:

    Ernest Mbewe is out also with two yellows cards. He has been one of our best players. We will miss him, he has assisted most of our goals.

  7. Brian Silungwe says:

    @mufana Surely, The Coach Should Stop Experiments In Serious Matches like What He Did In The Namibia Match. Most Players Did Not Perform Well Bcoz Of His “Experimental Tactics”.

    • Bsimms says:

      Those were his plans. No experiments there. He is just a poor tactician.

      A good coach would have rested the young man Simon Silwimba since playing him was at a risk of suspension once he gets a booking but ba Wada just risked it all….

  8. Chali says:

    The coach needs to learn to use the midfield. Kick and chase is not a way to play soccer.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Thats why we need Ngonga ,injuries and yellow cards

  10. Don says:

    The Sudanese defence breathes a sigh of relief…Bazo ala bazisha.

  11. Simmz Simwinga says:

    Quick recovery Bazo, we love you.
