Zambia to play Ivory Coast in International friendly

Zambia to play Ivory Coast in International friendly

Zambia will play Ivory Coast on June 19 in Abu Dhabi in the final international friendly match on their international tour of duty.

On Sunday the Chipolopolo boys played African champions Cameroon in an international friendly match at Cerro del Espino Stadium in Madrid.

Zambia lost 2-1, with goals for the Indomitable Lions coming through George Ntep and Joel Taguel for Cameroon while South African Premier League top scorer Mwape Musonda hit the back of the net for Zambia.
Team manager Mwansa Kapyanga confirmed the development saying the game against Gambia that was scheduled for June 12 would not take-off.

Kapyanga who is standing in for Desmond Mngawa who was away with the Cosafa team said the Ivory Coast match would be the final match in a three-game international tour for the Chipolopolo.

The FAZ media team shares some of the images from the international friendly match.

Zambia plays Morocco on June 16 at Grand Stade de Marrakech before concluding its three leg friendly matches with an encounter against the 2015 African champions Ivory Coast in Abu Dhabi on June 19.
