Zambia to play Sierra Leone in International friendly

Zambia to play Sierra Leone in International friendly

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) has clinched an international friendly match with Sierra Leone ahead of Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier clashes with Algeria and Zimbabwe.

Sierra Leone will make a stopover in Lusaka en-route to Lesotho where they will face that country in Group L of the AFCON qualifier match on 27 March.

With the COVID-19 making it hard to organize international friendly matches, FAZ has welcomed the Leone Stars’ gesture to play Zambia.

FAZ general secretary Adrian Kashala and his Sierra Leone Football Association counterpart Christopher Kamara have finalised talks and committed to ensure the proper management of the friendly match.

The two sides will square off on Monday at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka at 21:00 hours in what will be a dress rehearsal for Thursday evening’s clash with Algeria at the same venue.
