Zambia will play South African PSL club Orlando Pirates Football Club in a training game in South Africa. Chipolopolo left the country this afternoon for Johannesburg on their way to Morocco for the 2017 African Nations Championship (CHAN) edition.
The training game will be played on Wednesday morning in Johannesburg before Chipolopolo flies out to Morocco.
It is looking like the training match will be the only friendly Zambia will play before the 2018 CHAN tournament that kicks off on January 12 following their delayed departure for Morocco where they were due to play Cameroon in a warm-up match this week.
Zambia, who left Lusaka for Johannesburg on Tuesday afternoon, will fly to Casablanca via Dubai immediately after the friendly against Pirates on Wednesday night.
Wedson Nyirenda’s side will kick-off their Group B campaign on January 14 against Uganda in Marrakech.
