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.”
