After Zimbabwe secured a place in the African Cup of Nations, coach Logarušić announced a change in the starting lineup, in order to give the reservists a chance to show their quality. Midfielder Monsoon, just like Hadebe and Jimmy Dzingai, received yellow cards and if they play in this match, they would risk skipping the first game of the African Cup of Nations. Goalkeeper Mapisa should make his debut as well as defender Kamhuka. Captain Musona, deputy captain Karuru, Kamusoka, and Chikwende have injury problems and will certainly stay on the bench or get a few minutes. Zambia has quality players like Dhaka, the great talent of Salzburg, Mwepu who also plays for Salzburg, and the duo Simba Chama and Bwaly. I think they will do their best to close the qualifiers undefeated.
