Nigeria vs Zambia: Chipolopolos suffer major set-back ahead of Super Eagles’ clash

Nigeria vs Zambia: Chipolopolo arrive in Abuja

Zambia forward, Edward Chilufya has been ruled out of Saturday’s make or break World Cup qualifier against Nigeria in Uyo.

The forward will not be available for the game owing to work permit hassles.

This also came after the exemption of Brian Mwila and Emmanuel Banda from the Chipolopolo squad owing to various degrees of injury.

Chilufya, who plays for Sweden’s Djurgardens will play no part as his work permit was yet to be finalised after signing a contract on turning 18 years.

However, FC Liefering’s Enock Mwepu closes up the number of foreign-based players with the exception of Patson Daka who will join the squad in Abuja on Wednesday.

The Chipolopolos arrived Abuja on Wednesday afternoon and are expected in Uyo on Thursday morning.

In the reversed fixture, first-half goals from Alex Iwobi and Kelechi Iheanacho handed Gernot Rohr’s men a 2-1 victory at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium, Ndola.
