The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has withdrawn Copper Queens midfielder Xiomara Mapepa from the FIFA window international friendly matches in South Korea due to disciplinary reasons.

Mapepa was a second half substitute in Friday’s 5-2 loss to South Korea at the Suwon World Cup Stadium.In a statement, FAZ acting General Secretary Iva Lengwe says Mapepa has since been released from national duty and will be heading home.

“FAZ has in liaison with the team management and the host nation arrived at the decision that was made in line with the disciplinary code of conduct and also basic standards of conduct on foreign soil,” Lengwe says.

Zambia will on Tuesday face South Korea in an international friendly match to conclude the international window action.
