Zambian MTN Super league leaders Zanaco will this afternoon take on Congo DR giants TP Mazembe in Lubumbashi in a friendly match.
This is after FAZ granted Zanaco permission to travel to Congo instead of playing the league game against Napsa Stars today. The Napsa vs Zanaco game which is expected to draw a capacity crowd in Lusaka will now be played on 1st August.
FAZ vice president Borniface Mwamelo confirmed the development stating that it was the associations desire to expose both the national teams and clubs to quality friendlies.
“TP Mazembe wrote to us requesting for a friendly and we have allowed them to play Zanaco on Saturday”, Mwamelo said.
The Trip is an ‘all expenses paid for’ for Zanaco.
TP Mazembe are stepping up preparations for the Champions league games after a poor start to their group stage campaign with a loss away and a draw at home.
