SYLVESTER CHISHIMBA, Lusaka
NATIONAL women’s team coach Albert Kachinga has selected 20 players for the Council of Southern Africa Football Associations (COSAFA) Championship slated for Zimbabwe.
Unveiling his squad at a briefing in Lusaka yesterday, Kachinga is upbeat the team will reach the semi-finals.
He dropped Theresa Chewe, Margaret Belemu, Hellen Chanda, Elizabeth Nachula, Esther Mushota, Abel Chitundu and Annie Namonje.
“The team is psychologically and physically prepared for the tournament after three weeks of training. It was not easy to pick the final team because there was a lot of competition. We had to strike a balance and pick players on merit. Our target is to reach the semi-finals and the team we have picked will definitely help us accomplish this,” Kachinga said.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
