Sichone makes four changes as disastrous Katebe drops to the bench 

Chipolopolo assistant coach Moses Sichone has made four changes to the team that suffered a shock 1-0 defeat to Malawi in the COSAFA Championship opener. 

Sichone has handed starting places to Albert Kangwanda, Abraham Siankombo, Mathews Chabala and Samson Mkandawire. 

Benedict Chepeshi, Aaron Katebe, Patson Kwataime and Golden Mashata drop to the bench. 

Katebe had a poor game and scored an ‘unbelievable’ own goal in the 16th minute after a mixup with captain Kelvin Kapumbu. 

Wisdom Libamba Moyela continues to lead the attack with Kelvin Kapumbu protecting the back four while Lawrence Mulenga maintains his place in goal. 

Zambia need a win to have a chance of progressing to the next round to keep their hopes of defending the title they won last year.
