ZAMBIA coach Sven Vandenbroeck is concerned that some of the 24 players named for next Wednesday’s 2019 Cameroon Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Guinea Bissau are not having enough game time at their respective clubs.
And Vandenbroeck has recalled Zesco United left back Fackson Kapumbu.
Vandenbroeck is concerned that some of his stars are warming benches at their respective clubs.
“Some [players] have increased their play time while some have decreased their playing time. To build a strong team, I think on average we should have more playing time but that is for the future to discuss with them.
