BARBARA BANDA TO LEAD ATTACK ALONGSIDE GRACE CHANDA… HELLEN MUBANGA COULD START AHEAD OF NACHULA

Zambia Women’s national team star forward Barbara Banda is expected to lead the attack this afternoon when the Copper Queens go head to head with Cameroon in an Olympic qualifier.

The former Spanish based striker is one of coach Bruce Mwape’s key players and as she can win a match single-handedly on her day.

The Competition’s leading top goalscorer Grace Chanda is another lethal asset in coach Mwape’s arsenal for this afternoon’s crucial encounter.

FAZ Lusaka Women’s League top goalscorer Hellen Mubanga is likely to start ahead of the speedy Hellen Nachula as the lone striker upfront.

Captain of the side Misozi Zulu may start from the bench as she just recovered from illness recently.

The Arsenal at Mwape’s disposal is good enough to at least get an important away although it won’t be easy playing against an experienced Lionesses squad that recently participated in the FIFA Women’s World Cup.

Zambia and Cameroon will face off this afternoon at 15:30 (16:30 Zambian time ) at the Ahmadou Ahidjo Omnisports Stadium. The return leg will be played at Nkoloma Stadium on Tuesday, 10th March.

The winner over two legs will qualify for the Tokyo 2020 Olympics while the losing team will face South American side Chile in a playoff.
