Zambia head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has dropped Simba SC midfielder Clatous Chama and Azam FC striker Aubrey Chirwa from his squad that is set to take South Africa, Malawi and Kenya’s Harambee Stars in their upcoming friendlies.
Zambia will be up against Malawi on Wednesday before taking Kenya in Nairobi on Friday and according to Micho on his decision to drop the duo, they failed to report to camp on time.
Apart from the duo, Micho will miss the services of Patson Daka and Enock Mwepu since they were not allowed to travel by their clubs owing to the club barring all their players from featuring for their national teams during the international window after recording three Covid-19 cases.
Evans Kangwa, Kings Kangwa (both Arsenal Tula), Edward Chilufya (Djurgardens), Fashion Sakala (K.O Ostende-Belgium) and Lubambo Musonda (Slask Wroclaw-Poland) will lead Zambia’s foreign contingent in the games.
