Zebras brace for COSAFA champions' wrath

Zambia's French coach Herv Renard has said that he would bring the same squad that was crowned COSAFA Cup champions to face the Zebras on Saturday.

Botswana welcomes Chipolopolo in the first leg match of the first round of African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers at the Molepolole Sports Complex. When fielding questions from the media following Saturday's 2-0 victory over Zimbabwe in Ndola, the Frenchman told this reporter that he would definitely keep the squad of locally based players to face the Zebras and that they want to continue where they left off to win the CHAN.

He said the team has a lot of young players who proved in the COSAFA Cup that they have what it takes to be future Chipolopolo stars.They include goalkeeper Danny Munyai and winger Mukuka Mulenga who won individual awards for their performance. Renard also revealed the secret behind his team's success in the regional competition. Way back before the tournament, he embarked on an ambitious initiative, travelling the country to identify new players who could be considered for the national side.
