ASANOVIC STRANDED IN DURBAN
Following the arrival of the Chipolopolo in Durban ahead of tomorrow’s 2022 Cosafa Hollywoodbets quarterfinal against Botswana, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) wishes to notify the football family that the team has settled well and ready for the match.
FAZ also wishes to inform the public that Head Coach Aljosa Asanovic and his European assistants are yet to join the team owing to visa challenges and are expected to join the team soon.
“The head coach will join the team as soon as the visa issue is sorted out. We have engaged the tournament organizers as well as the South African immigration and our local authorities to expedite the process,” says FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala.
“We are hopeful that the process should be completed in a couple of hours. There should be no panic as the technical bench is well organized and everything is flowing normally.
Kashala has urged the public to rally behind the team as they take on Botswana tomorrow (Tuesday) at King Zwelithini Stadium in Durban.
Five-time champions Zambia join the Cosafa Cup at the quarterfinal stage with the opening game being at 17:00 hours and will be live on SuperSport 9.
