Ghana's 2014 World Cup opponents; Zambia line up Namibia friendly

Zambian team to battle Namibia in friendly

By Ameenu Shardow

Zambia will be presenting a team full of local players in a friendly game against Namibia on Saturday ahead of their 2014 World Cup qualifiers.

The Chipolopolo look to inject more life into their campaign for a first ever World Cup qualification with the friendly in Windhoek.

Zambia will be hosting Lesotho on June 8 and will also welcome Sudan a week after in June’s round of qualifiers.

Renard Herve’s side look to maintain their one-point lead of favourites; Ghana by winning both games early next month in Ndola.

The 2012 African champions have dipped in form in recent times – winning only once in their last nine games.

Their poor run has seen Ghana gain grounds on them in the 2014 World Cup qualifying series.

The Black Stars lie just a point behind with three matches left and a vital final game against Zambia back on their home grounds in Ghana.

The friendly against Namibia also gives coach Renard Herve a final opportunity to determine his replacements for goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene who is suspended and injured Stoppila Sunzu.

    Somebody should tell that CASTED thing to stop coming here to disgrace itself. The right word is "thrice" not "trice". Anyway, stupid people are always like that. They can't sleep & are seriously tormenting because of Ghanaians. Hey headless-being stop copying my style.

    Both Zambia and Namibia are out of the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Our Ghana has beaten Zambia by scoring 2-1 goals. It feels really great that Ghana has been selected for the world cup and already declared their 26-man squad. Now it's just time to wait more 30 days. Get more world cup news http://maizupath.com/
