Nkana have received a boost ahead of Sunday’s Confederation Cup quarter-final first leg against Tunisian side Club Sportif Sfaxien following the return to training of skipper Walter Bwalya.
Club chief executive officer Charles Chakatazya confirmed in an interview yesterday that Bwalya, who missed a Super Division Stream B Week 10 match against Lumwana Radiants last Saturday, has resumed light training.
“Walter (Bwalya) is back and has resumed light training ,” Chakatazya said. Meanwhile, Sfaxien are expected in the country tomorrow. Chakatazya said the Tunisians will land at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport in Ndola before undertaking a drive to Kitwe.
Meanwhile, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) has appointed Bernard Camille to officiate the match in Kitwe. Camille, from Seychelles, will be making a return to Zambia three weeks after he officiated the 2019 Egypt Africa Cup of Nations qualifier between Zambia and Namibia at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
According to cafonline.com, Camille will be assisted by compatriot James Emile and Ralph Fabien of Mauritius. Nkana will host the Tunisians with the return leg on April 14.
