Turkey-based Zambia Women National Team midfielder Misozi Zulu will miss next week’s friendly match against South Africa’s Banyana Banyana at home in Lusaka.

Zambia will face South Africa at Nkoloma Stadium on February 12 ahead of the upcoming Africa Cup qualifier against Namibia.

Shepolopolo coach Bruce Mwape said Zulu will also miss the first leg match of the Africa Cup qualifier against Namibia on 16 February in Lusaka.

“She will be released (by the club) on the 14th so she will probably join the team on the 15th or 16th but I don’t think she will be part of the team that will play the qualifying game and the friendly,” Mwape has told journalists in Lusaka.

Meanwhile, Mwape is confident Zambia will beat Namibia and qualify for the Africa Cup.

“With the experience that we have gained from the previous tournaments, I think the girls will not be under pressure. They have the experience, and they will do better than people expect,” Mwape said.
