Copper Queens intensify Olympics preps

The Zambia Women National Team have been hard at work with preparing for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Coach Bruce Mwape and his technical bench have been drilling the lasses for the second week running as part of preparations for the Olympics.

All but five of the summoned players have been in camp for two weeks.

The remaining foreign based players will join camp in Europe in the final stages of preparation for the 12-team tournament.

Mwape and his technical bench will carry a 22-member squad for the European camp where they will play two international friendly matches prior to the kickoff of the tournament on July 24.

Zambia will open its account on July 25 against the United States of America at the Stade de Nice before playing Australia three days later at the same venue.

The final group match will be up against Germany in St Etienne.

Mwape’s Copper Queens are making their second appearance at the Olympics which has been flavoured with a historic FIFA World Cup appearance and a WAFCON bronze medal.
