Zambia coach George Lwandamina says this weekend’s four-nations invitational tournament in Angola will be a good build-up ahead of next week’s 2018 World Cup qualifiers against Sudan.04 November 2015, 00:16
Zambia has been invited to play in a four-nation round-robin tournament that will run from November 6-7 in Luanda where they face Namibia, DR Congo and hosts Angola.
The tournament will come a week before Zambia play Sudan away in Khartoum on November 11 in a Russia 2018 second round, first leg qualifier.
“It will be part of our training games and what is important is further exposure for our players before we play Sudan,” Lwandamina said.
“They need a lot of game time that is why the tournament is important for us.
“What is important is we will get some training games and we will expose as many players as we can so that we have broader base from where to pick from.”
Lwandamina will take a domestic-league-based team for the tournament and is expected to trim the 24-member team currently in camp prior to departure on November 4.
