Football Association of Zambia's president Andrew Kamanga says they might set up a training camp in Europe as they prepare for their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.
PIRATES LOOK TO BUILD ON SOLID START
The FAZ boss said 2017 had so far been an exciting year on the soccer calendar with national teams across the stream delivering results.
“We have only got four weeks before the Nigeria game, so we are looking at options in terms of where we can camp the team and get the best value,” said Kamanga.
“As you know some of the players are already in Europe, they did not come with us they have gone back.
“We may see it fit to camp the team in Europe so that it is easier to prepare the team adequately and it is actually shorter to go into Europe from Nigeria.
“We are putting in every effort to make sure that this team is adequately prepared as we face Nigeria, which for me is the do or die game whoever wins that game will be assured of going to Russia 2018.
“But most interestingly in this group, we are the only ones who have never been to the World Cup, but with the favour we continue to draw on we should be able to qualify, come November because we have the advantage of playing Cameroun in the final round.”
