Zambia set for Saudi friendlies



After nearly a week of training, a local assemblage of the Zambia national soccer team leaves for Saudi Arabia Wednesday for a two match international tour of the Middle East.

Zambia will play Saudi Arabia on Saturday and Tuesday. Both matches will be played in the Arabian city of Dammam. The matches form part of the local squad's selection build up.

FAZ Communications Manager Erick Mwanza told fazfootball.com that the tour of Arabia was important for the players in the camp as it will give the coach and technical staff an opportunity to further assess them and see how they could apply themselves in match situations.

"We are pleased with the manner of progression of the local camp which we set up last Sunday. Turn out has been fantastic and the commitment of the players excellent. The camp has been a success and this tour of Arabia will provide the coach a fantastic opportunity to see how his plays apply themselves."

"We are looking forward to two fantastic matches and commend our counterparts at the Saudi federation for their wonderful collaboration with FAZ," Mwanza said adding that the traveling squad will be announced Wednesday morning.

At the end of the local squad's training camp, Herve Renard will announce his African champion provisional squad to defend Zambia's Africa Cup title next year.
