Micho in Europe to check on players with Zambian roots


Chipolopolo head coach Milutin Sredojevic is currently in Europe checking on players with Zambian roots with the view of convincing them to play for the Copper Bullets.

Following Zambia’s failure to qualify for the Africa Cup of Nations for a third straight time, the attention has shifted to the World Cup qualifiers.

Zambia was drawn in Group B alongside Tunisia, Mauritania and Equatorial Guinea.

Micho is also expected to hold talks with British defender of Zambian descent Jadel Katongo who plays for Manchester City U/18 in the U/18 Premier League.

The 16-year-old has already featured for the Three Lions’ U/15 and U/16 teams making a combined four appearances in 2019.

Chipolopolo were due to start their World Cup qualification journey with a date away in Mauritania in the first weekend of June between 5-8, but CAF has since moved to September.

The winners of Zambia’s Group B and the other nine groups will face off in a two-legged playoff to decide the five (5) who shall make it to Qatar November/December 2022.
