Chipolopolo midfielder Godfrey Ngwenya is a doubt for Sunday’s Group B African Nations Championship (CHAN) tie against Uganda due to injury.

The Power Dynamos midfielder has been sidelined with a knee injury sustained during a friendly match against Orlando Pirates last week.

Team doctor Mwila Lupasha told Fazfootball.com that Ngwenya sustained soft tissue ligaments damage and is under observation.

“Godfrey is currently under observation, we will keep him on treatment for now and will not take part in Sunday’s game,” Lupasha said.

Zambia plays Uganda tomorrow at the Grand Stade de Marrakech at 21:00 hours (CAT) in the opening fixture.

The Chipolopolo boys are grouped with Ivory Coast, Uganda and Namibia.

Pay television channel SuperSport will beam the tournament live.
