Chipolopolo set up training base in Marrakech ahead of World Cup Qualifiers

 The Zambia National Team have set up their training camp in Morocco ahead of their back-to-back appointments in the Qatar 2022 World Cup Qualifiers with Mauritania and Tunisia.

The Chipolopolo boys got down to business in Marrakech with a recovery session at the Grand Stade de Marrakech annex.

Beston Chambeshi and Technical Advisor Alijosa Asanovic led the 22 local guns through the paces as Zambia builds up for the September 3 Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier away to Mauritania.

The team has set up base at the uptown Adam Park Hotel and will be holed up in Marrakech for 10 days before heading to Nouakchott.

Foreign based players will join the squad in Morocco ahead of the back-to-back clashes against Mauritania and Tunisia.

The Chipolopolo play Mauritania on September 3 at the Olympic Stadium before hosting the Carthage Eagles of Tunisia four days later in Ndola.

FAZ has secured a 10-day international camp for the Chipolopolo to help the team prepare inhibited and have a feel of similar conditions to Mauritania.
