Chilufya drops from Chipolopolo squad against NigeriaBy Nyambe Lubasi on 4 Oct 2017
Zambia Under-20 midfield star Edward Chilufya is not coming for the Nigeria clash.
Chilufya of Swedish club Djurgardens has yet again put on hold his much anticipated Chipolopolo debut due to administrative issues.
This is the second successive time that Chilufya has been made a late withdrawal from Chipolopolo duty after the September 2 and 5 Group B dates in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Algeria due to the same issue.
“Edward Chilufya is not coming. He is out because of resident permit issues,” a communiqué from FAZ stated.
“He is still sorting out his paper work after signing his contract on turning 18.”
Chilufya turns 18 on September 17.
He moved to Djurgardens in June after the 2017 FIFA World Cup in South Korea where Zambia reached the quarterfinals and he scored one goal at the tournament.
Chilufya is the third player ruled out of Zambia’s Group B qualifier after South African-based striker Brian Mwila of Platinum Stars and midfielder Emmanuel Banda of KV Oostende in Belgium.
Mwila and Banda withdrew from the Nigeria game due to injuries.
Meanwhile, Zambia are heading to Nigeria today in two groups after their three day training camp in Ghana where they setup a transit base in Accra on Sunday.
The team left Accra in two groups with one leaving for Abuja in the morning and the second in the afternoon on their way to Uyo where the must-win Group B qualifier will be played.
Nigeria and Zambia are 1st and 2nd in group B on 10 and 7 points with two rounds of matches left to play.
Cameroon is 3rd on 3 points and Algeria is bottom on 1 point.Related Items
