Zambia national team coach Wedson Nyirenda has received a massive boost after all his players have joined the camp.

Nyirenda is preparing his team ahead of the Four Nations tournament set to be staged in Ndola starting from Wednesday.

The team’s foreign contingent summoned for the four team tournament have all reported for camp ahead of Wednesday’s opener against the Warriors of Zimbabwe.

The seven foreign-based Chipolopolo stars are Fashion Sakala (Spartak Moskva), Emmanuel Banda (KV Oostende), Rodrick Kabwe (Ajax Cape Town), Enock Mwepu (Redbull Salzburg), Salulani Phiri (Polokwane City) and Orlando Pirates duo of striker Justin Shonga and Augustine Mulenga.

Zambia will face Zimbabwe on Wednesday at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium at 13:00 (CAT) with South Africa’s Bafana Bafana tackling AngOla’s Palancas Negras later on at the same venue.

The winners in both matches will face each other in the final with the losers competing for the third and fourth positions.
