Nyirenda explains European based bullets call ups
Zambia national team head coach Wedson Nyirenda has explained the logic behind calling seven foreign based Chipolopolo stars for the four team tournament to be held in Ndola between 21st and 24th March.
Nyirenda believes taking advantage of the four team tournament to keep the team together and asses the progress is the best idea.
” We need to be together as a team. It would have taken too long to wait for our next FIFA window which is in September. I think it is a good idea to use this tournament to gauge how all our players are fairing and were they are lagging behind so that we can work on it,” He said.
The Chipolopolo tactition is expecting to have a more co-ordinated team after the four team tournament.
” We want to achieve co-ordination after the tournament. Our programme has been different the previous teams. We have been very active over the past one year. We have been holding three day camps every month which we will continue despite having a team because we are unearthing alot of new talents,”He said.
Nyirenda is also hoping the players engaged with continental duty will be back in good time so that he can hold atleast two full sessions to be ready for the opening game of the Tournament.
