ZAMBIA TACKLE NORWAY FOR EAGLES
Posted: Oct 28, 2012
Zambia are to host Norway in a warm-up on January 14 as they leave nothing to chance after they were grouped with Nigeria for the AFCON.
Highly placed sources at Football House in Lusaka told MTNFootball.com that the game will be Zambia’s final friendly before their January 21 opening 2013 Africa Cup Group C game against Ethiopia.
Nigeria and Burkina Faso are the other teams in Zambia’s first round group.
“Norway are coming to play us on January 14 Ndola. Negotiations over the friendly are almost concluded,” the source said.
“Zambia will fly into Ndola from Johannesburg where they will be camped just to play this game then immediately head back to South Africa.”
Norway’s visit will be the first by a Scandinavian national side to Zambia.
The source said Zambia is expected to go into full residential camp after Boxing Day in Johannesburg at Garden Court Milpark.
Zambia will play all their Group C matches in Nelspruit in Mpumalanga.
“Coach Herve Renard wants to camp the team in Mpumalanga but a site has yet to be selected so for now, the team will camp as usual in Johannesburg,” the source said.
