Zambia gears up for comoros clash with arrival of key foreign-based players

Lusaka, Zambia – Zambia’s preparations for Saturday’s Group H CAF 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Comoros in Moroni have been boosted by the arrival of six key foreign-based players.

Among the notable arrivals are Leicester City striker Patson Daka and Ayr United defender Frankie Musonda, who have both landed in Lusaka and are now available for selection.

The other foreign-based players who have joined the camp are Kings Kangwa (Red Star Belgrade), Golden Mafwenta (Vyskov), Benson Sakala (Mlada Boleslav), and Rally Bwalya (Sekhukhune).
