South Africa and Guinea have snubbed Zambia and called off International friendly matches that were scheduled for this month in Paris , France.
The Zambian football association- FAZ had earlier announced that the Chipolopolo boys will play South Africa and Guinea this month in Paris which the South African football Association-SAFA had also confirmed but yesterday during Hugo Broos’s unveiling of his Bafana Bafana squad , Zambia was not mentioned as one of the countries they will play instead mentioned FRANCE and GUINEA.
SAFA had initially organized friendly matches against France and Zambia , while FAZ arranged one against South Africa and Guinea but “SAFA decided to lure Guinea and cancelled their friendly with Zambia”, said a close source at SAFA.
Guinea were set to play the Chipolopolo boys in France but more sources have confirmed that they have not communicated again with the football association of Zambia- FAZ whether or not they will be available before confirming their friendly against South Africa in the same period and venue.
The football association of Zambia is now expected to announce new opponents for the Chipolopolo boys for at least two friendly matches ahead of the 2023 Africa cup of nations Qualifiers.
The Zambian technical bench had planned to assemble all their european based super stars to play for the first time under new coach Aljosa Asanovic who took over the national team two months ago.
