 Chipolopolo settles in Tunisia

By Mercy Chewe
The Zambia National Team has set up camp in Tunisia ahead of Tuesday’s final Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifying match against The Carthage Eagles.

Chipolopolo arrived in Tunisia late on Sunday after taking an overnight scheduled flight from Lusaka to Tunisia via Saudi Arabia immediately after Saturday’s 4-0 home win over Mauritania in Lusaka.

The Beston Chambeshi coached side training last evening a few hours after landing.

“The team has set up a base at the El Mouradi Gammarth Hotel,” said FAZ spokesperson Sydney Mungala.

“Beston Chambeshi’s charges touched down at the Carthage International Airport at 12h40 local time aboard Emirates Airlines,” Mungala added.

Leaders Tunisia must beat Zambia to advance after losing 1-0 away to second placed Equatorial Guinea in Malabo on Saturday.
