Zambia is coming to Senegal with a second-string squad, which includes players from their domestic league. They are without all of their big foreign-based names like Patson Daka, Enock Mwepu, and Fashion Sakala, while it’s important to notice that the Zambian league hasn’t finished yet and many of the players are still focused on their respective clubs and are not released for this friendly match. Also, players from other African clubs such as Justin Shonga (Cape Town), Clatous Chama (Simba), Mulenga (Amazulu) Chongo (TP Mazembe), and Kabwe (Black Leopards) will not be present, which is a huge blow for the Chipolopolos. This has left coach Milutin Sredojevic with just five out of the fourteen foreign-based call-ups in his 22-member team on the tour.
Senegal is a giant in terms of football with big names Sadio Mane, Diatta, Koulibaly, Gueye, and expect to crush the weak Zambian team without any problem.
