“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Sven Vandenbroek as our national team coach. Sven was the top choice of those that were considered. We have confidence that he should be able to deliver to the expectations of FAZ, the team and people of Zambia because Sven’s record and experience in Africa is very good.

He is an AFCON winner with Cameroon, ambitious, young, well qualified, eager for the huge and exciting challenge that the Chipolopolo job provides and his passion and commitment to bring success to the Zambia national team is not in doubt,” Acting Secretary General Adrian Kashala said.

Sven’s immediate mandate is to qualify the Chipolopolo to the 2019 Total Africa Cup of Nations final tournament.

“We have a fantastic pool of young and experienced players. Sven has enough time between now and our next qualifier to mould a team that will qualify and compete for honours in Cameroon and set the tone for our dream of a World Cup place in 2022.

Our call is to every stakeholder and supporter of Zambian football to work together and support the coach and boys. Doing so will ensure that we achieve greater things together,” Kashala added.
