Micho makes five changes as Moses Phiri and Brian Mwila partner upfront
Chipolopolo boss Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has made five changes to the team that suffered a shock 2-1 loss to Lesotho for this afternoons’ clash against Eswatini.
Buildcon striker Brian Mwila and the 2020/2021 Super League golden boot winner Moses ‘the Moses of our time’ Phiri start up front in place of Justin Shonga and Gamphani Lungu who drop to the bench.
Dominic Chanda takes up the place of Adrian Chama while Kelvin Mubanga Kampamba is replaced by Zachariah Chilongoshi who will play at left-back with Rodrick Kabwe going up on the wing.
The Serbian gaffer has maintained the midfield partnership of Benson Sakala and Salulani Phiri. Simon Silwimba takes up Chepeshi’s place at right-back while Augustine Mulenga again starts on the right-wing.
Zambia desperately needs a win this afternoon to keep their semifinal hopes alive. The Copper Bullets succumbed to a 2-1 loss at the hands of Lesotho in their opening game on Thursday.
The 2021 Cosafa Cup has two groups of five teams with the top two teams qualifying for the semifinals.
Zambia is the defending Champions having won their fifth title in 2019 under Aggrey Chiyangi. Zimbabwe is the record winner with six titles.
