The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) confirmed the development on their official Facebook page.
Micho and his technical bench have come up with a strategic plan that involves individualized training for players using video footage during this period of the COVID-19 pandemic as they want to keep track of the players during this period as no gathering is allowed.
The technical bench came up with an implementation of interviewing various players individually by video conferencing through Skype, Facebook and WhatsApp.
