Zanaco start season in week 3

Zanaco FC may go into Week 3 of the 2015 Super League without kicking a ball after the club announced that they may be asking the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) to reschedule their Week 2 match owing to the high number of players on national duty.

The bankers have contributed nine players to the U20 and U23 national teams and are now considering requesting for a postponement of the league match against promoted Forest Rangers.

“In an event that both Allan Chibwe and Toaster Nsabata makes the final list for the All-Africa Games Qualifier match against Nigeria in Abuja on March 21 and the Under 20 also manage to go past the group stage at the ongoing Orange African U-20 Championship in Senegal, Coach Numba Mumamba will only have Racha Kola as the only goalkeeper making it impossible for the match to go ahead,” a statement from Zanaco read.

Zanaco will not be in action this weekend when the league kicks off as their opponents Power Dynamos will be in Gabon for a CAF Confederations Cup match.

Full list of Zanaco players on national duty:

Under 20
Mangani Banda, Davy Daka and Charles Zulu

Under 23
Toaster Nsabata, Allan Chibwe, Salulani Phiri, Moses Phiri, Emmanuel Phiri, Rodrick Kabwe
