Copper Queens out to avenge loss to Colombia

The Zambia Women’s national team and Colombia will square off in the early hours of Wednesday in their second of two international friendly match.


The Copper Queens were handed a 1-0 defeat in their first game with Colombia in the early hours of Sunday. 

Coach Bruce has emphasized on putting up a fight at the Pascual Guerrero stadium as they target a win.

Mwape has also hinted on a number of changes to his team to give chance to players who did not get playing time on Sunday. 

Hazel Nali is expected to start between the sticks but Mwape has options in Catherine Musonda and Eunice Sakala. 

In defense, Agness Musesa is expected to partner Esther Banda in the heart of defense with Esther Siamfuko and Margaret Belemu keeping their places at left and right back respectively.

Ireen Lungu, the female Computer, Evarine Susan Katongo and Grace Chanda are expected to make up the midfield trio while Rachael Kundananji is expected to lead the attack. 

With Rachel ‘Victor Moses’ Nachula, Prisca ‘Ba King’ Chilufya, Misozi ‘CR7’ Zulu, Avell ‘Korkie’ Chitundu, Xiomara ‘Skamale’ Mapepa and  Ochumba Oseke Lubanji all available, Mwape has some serious decisions to make regarding who will start. 

Both Zambia and Colombia are using the match to prepare for the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup to be co-hosted by Australia and New Zealand.

The Copper Queens are in Group C alongside Spain, Japan and Costa Rica while Colombia will face Germany, Morocco and South Korea in Group H at the ninth edition of the FIFA Women’s World Cup.
