Patson Daka starts light training
Zambia national team striker Patson Daka has started light training after being out for two weeks after suffering a hamstring injury.
Daka limped out of Redbull Salzburg’s 3-2 loss to Athletico Madrid in a UEFA Champions League Group A encounter just 29 minutes in and subsequently went on to miss the two league matches and the 6-2 loss to Bayern Munich.

The injury also ruled the 2017 CAF young player of the year out of Chipolopolo’s back to back Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Botswana.
The Kafue Celtic product has however given hope to fans for Salzburg and Chipolopolo after he posted a video on Social media of himself doing light training for the first time since late last month.
Never just see the finish line. Embrace the courage to start and perseverance of the journey. Happy to be back outside (exactly two weeks today).
