Copper Bullets arrive in Dakar ahead of Senegal showdown

The Copper Bullets have arrived in Dakar, Senegal ahead of Saturday’s international friendly match against the Teranga Lions.

The Chipolopolo boys who left for Senegal on Tuesday aboard an Ethiopian airline flight slept in Addis Ababa on Tuesday before proceeding to Dakar on Wednesday morning. Zambia touched down at the Blaise Diagne International Airport at 17:30 hours on Wednesday after a brief stopover in Bamako, Mali.

Micho’s men are accommodated at the Baobab Hotel and are expected to hold their first training session in Senegal this morning.

The Serbian Wolf is without several players, Some are tied up with club engagements, others are injured while some have personal issues to sort out. The list of players includes Sweden bases duo of Edward Chilufya and Emmanuel Banda, South African-based duo of Rodrick Kabwe and Augustine Mulenga, Skipper Kabaso Chongo, Rally Bwalya, Clatous Chama, and Lubambo Musonda who all could not make the trip due to the above-mentioned reasons.

Micho earlier excused Patson Daka, Enock Mwepu, and Evans Kangwa to sort out their club futures while Fashion Sakala was excused to make sure he completes his move to Scottish giants Rangers FC.

Zambia will play Senegal on Saturday in Thies in the first of three international friendly matches that will see the Chipolopolo play Benin in Cotonou on June 8 before heading to Omdurman to clash with Sudan.
