ZIMBABWEANS have to wait for February 27 to watch Kalusha Bwalya and other former Zambia stars do battle against their counterparts.
The former Chipolopolo stars were supposed to be in Harare this Saturday but the match has been pushed forward.
Organising committee chairman Australia Mweemba said in Lusaka yesterday that the Zimbabweans want the match to coincide with a national event that will be held on February 27.
Kalusha broke Zimbabweans’ hearts when he scored in the 1-1 draw with the Warriors in the 1994 Tunisia Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at National Stadium in Harare.
The draw was enough for the Chipolopolo to qualify for the Tunisia finals.
Team coach Fred Mwila has summoned 31 players among them Kalusha, his younger brother Joel, Elijah Litana, Aggrey Chiyangi, Tenant Chilumba, John Lungu, Happy Sichikolo, Linos Makwaza, Zeddy Saileti, Mordon Malitoli and his younger brother Kenneth all part of the Chipolopolo side that finished second at the Tunisia finals.
Zambia lost 2-1 to Nigeria in the final.
Peter Kaumba, a 1982 Africa Cup bronze winner, is also in the team.
Kaumba was voted the continent’s best left winger at the 1982 Africa Cup of Nations in Libya.
