Zambia Names Squad To Travel For 'Dead Rubber' Match Against Zimbabwe
Zambia has named its squad to travel to Zimbabwe for the final Group H Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) dead rubber qualifier against the Warriors on Monday next week.
Chipolopolo are expected to arrive in Harare this weekend but have already failed to qualify for the 2021 AFCON finals to be hosted by Cameroon.
Zambia drew 3-3 against Algeria’s Desert Foxes on Thursday night to blow away the chance of taking the fight to Zimbabwe.
The Warriors, on the other hand, secured the spot at next year’s continental showpiece after a 1-0 win in Botswana.
Monday’s meeting will be played at the giant National Sports Stadium in Harare.
