Zambia’s most prolific striker this year Brian Mwila and Belgium-based midfielder Emmanuel Banda have been ruled out of next Saturday’s World Cup qualifier in Nigeria due to injury, officials have disclosed.

Zambia team doctor George Magwende said South Africa-based Mwila, who scored a brace in the 3-1 win over Algeria at the Heroes Stadium on September 2, has not fully recovered from the knee injury he suffered in that particular game

Magwende also said that Emmanuel Banda from Belgian club KV Oostende has also been ruled on account of injury.

“Brian (Mwila) will not be part of the team as he had a recurrence of the injury he suffered during the Algeria game. It is best to give him time to fully recover,” he said.

Coach Wedson Nyirenda has since replaced the players with Power Dynamos midfielder Alex Ng’onga and Zesco United’s John Ching’andu.

The team depart for Accra, Ghana on Sunday, where they will set up base ahead of their crucial clash against Nigeria in Uyo. (SCORENigeria)
