Zambia football authorities have rubbished concerns that the Chipolopolo might not be available to play Ghana this week.


Rumours have been circulating that some players of the side are facing problem in acquiring visas to play in Wednesday's friendly in London.

The general secretary of Football Association of Zambia (FAZ), George Kasengele told Ghanasoccernet that some players have already arrived for the game in Leyton.

“Some of our players have already arrived in London and by Monday we expect the entire squad because some of the players played with their clubs on Sunday,” Kasengele told

“We are coming in full force to face Ghana squarely in London.”

He added that the rest of the squad will arrive on Monday to join their colleagues as their coach Renard Herve seeks to upset Ghana.

The Frenchman, who was the physical trainer of the Black Stars last year, is keen on proving a point to the West Africans for underrating his coaching qualities. 

He named most of the players who have been instrumental in the Chipolopolo's impressive run on the World Cup qualifiers.

Herve named all his Europe-based players for the game as he seeks to beat Ghana to establish his reputation.

NOTE: For those keen on attending the game in London, the Central Line on the London Underground trains goes direclty to Leyton where the match will be played. Kick off time 7:30 pm.
