COSAFA Men's U-17: Songa ruled out as Mutapa hints on changes for Malawi clash

Zambia U-17 national team head coach Osward Mutapa has hinted on making changes to his starting line up for this afternoon group A final match against hosts Malawi at the ongoing COSAFA U17 Championships.

Mutapa also confirmed that enterprising winger Chipyoka Songa will miss the match due to injury but he is confident he will be back before the semifinals.

"We will make a few changes but we want to get 100 percent from the group," he said.

"We one player who is seriously injured but I think by the time we will be playing the semifinals he will be fit. The others have knocks but we won't risk them," he added.

The junior Copper Bullets have been in scintillating form in the first two matches having brushed aside Eswatini 6-0 before handing South Africa a humiliating 7-0 bashing.

The Young Flames, on the other hand, started with a 3-0 win over South Africa before they were handed a shock 2-1 defeat by Eswatini.

The two will square off this afternoon at the Mpira Stadium. Kickoff for the match is set at 14:00hrs.
