Zambia picks team for Goan exposure trip
The Zambian national football team, who surprisingly won the 2012 African Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, are set for a 10 day training camp in Goa later this month ahead of the 2013 African Cup of Nations in South Africa next January and February.
Zambian coach Hervé Renard has picked a developmental 23 players side, mainly made-up of players playing in the domestic league to tour Goa from November 20 to 30, as part of the Chipolopolo’s preparations for next year’s tournament, leaving out their star players.
The second such camp in Goa is being organised by sponsors Konkola Copper Mines, who are a subsidiary of Vedanta Resources from India. Last year, Zambia had organised a similar camp in Goa and also played two friendly matches against a Goa XI (4-1) and Team India (5-0).
