The Chipolopolo’s opponents in the back to back AFCON qualifiers, Lesotho will tackle Eswatini in their final friendly match before facing Zambia.
The Lesotho Football Association (LFA) confirmed that Likuena will face Eswatini’s Sihlangu in a training match on Thursday at 15H00 as the two countries fine tune their preparations for the upcoming TotalEnergies 2023 Africa Cup of Nations.
The match will be played at LeFA’s Technical Centre at Bambatha Ts’ita Sports Arena.
Likuena are preparing for their back-to-back matches against Zambia to be played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium and Dobsonville Stadium on March 23rd and 26th respectively.
Eswatini on the other hand will play Cape Verde on the 24th and 28th respectively.
The Chipolopolo are currently in camp with local players being put through their paces by Avram Grant and his technical bench.
Zambia has three points after having lost 3-1 to Ivory Coast on match day one in Yamoussoukro and beating Comoros 2-1 at National Heroes Stadium.
Ivory Coast tops the group on four points while Zambia and Comoros are both on three points with Lesotho managing a point.
Hosts Ivory Coast have already qualified with the remaining three sides battling for the remaining slot from Group H.
Tickets for the March 23 encounter have already gone on sale and are being sold at K50 North and South Wing, K100 East Wing, K150 West (Lower and Upper) Wings and K200 VVIP at CompuTicket in all Shoprite stores countrywide.
This is why Zambia loses games before the hall is kicked. Lesotho is out here playing friendlies and Zambia hasn’t even announced the full squad. The match is in a week and we the public don’t even know which foreign based players have been called. The lack of seriousness and planning continues. Smdh
