In the goalkeeping department coach Beston Chambeshi has three options in Lameck Siame ,Charles Muntanga and Mangani Banda .

The Zanaco goalkeeper Mangani was in goal in Malawi and is expected to start again today with Muntanga on the bench.


The heart of defence is most definitely going to have the pairing of Nkana defender Moses Nyondo and Captain Solomon Sakala while Kebson Kamanga and Shemmy Mayembe will be left and right back respectively.

The ZamFoot crew expects Chambeshi to maintain his back four .


This is where coach Beston Chambeshi has a big head ache with alot of talent at his disposal. Boyd Musonda is expected to peep Ngosa Sunzu to the defensive midfielder role once again but should the latter start it won’t be a surprise.

Harrison Chisala started in Malawi but the ZamFoot crew believes Coach Beston Chambeshi might start him on the bench and give France based Emmanuel Banda a starting berth.

Fashion Sakala and Klings Kangwa are likely to start on the wings with Patson Daka playing as a lone Striker with Enock Mwepu playing just behind him in the number 10 role.
