Copper Queens fire up for Zimbabwe showdown


The Zambia Women National Team are gearing for Wednesday’s Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifier against Zimbabwe with two foreign based players in camp.

Skipper Misozi Zulu and Rachael Kundananji who play their trade in Kazakhstan for UEFA campaigning BIIK Kyzhak joined camp last week while Spain based Barbara Banda has been ruled out of tomorrow’s encounter due to injury.

The team has been going through the paces ahead of the back-to-back clash with the warriors.

Winner over two legs will face the either South Africa or Botswana in the next stage, with one of Gabon, Ghana, Malawi or Kenya waiting after that.

Only one team from Africa will automatically qualify for the Olympics this year, with another facing a play-off against a South American side Chile to also book their berth.
Zimbabwe arrived by road on Monday evening and will have a feel of Nkoloma Stadium in the afternoon.

Tickets are on sale via Computicket across Shoprite outlets.
The VIP tickets are fetching K50 while open wing is K10.
School children in uniform will be admitted for free in the stadium for the game which kicksoff at 15:00 hours at Nkoloma Stadium.
