Skipper Katongo arrives in camp



Zambia national team captain Chris Katongo has arrived at the team camp at Milpark Garden Court hotel in Johannesburg South Africa.

The Chinese-based striker was the last player to arrive in camp where coach Herve Renard is preparing them for the all-important World Cup 2014 qualifying game against Lesotho on Sunday.

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) spokesperson Erick Mwanza said that Katongo is in camp and ready for action.

He said that all the players are now in camp and looking forward to the upcoming game as Chipolopolo look to qualify for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“Chris has arrived which means the whole squad is here now. The morale in the camp is high and everything is good as there are no injuries. We will be flying to Lesotho over the weekend. Everyone is looking forward to the game because they know how important it is,” Mwanza said.

Chipolopolo lead the group with six points, followed by Ghana, Sudan and Lesotho on the bottom of the group. Ghana hosts Sudan on the same day in Kumasi, and victory for former African champions Zambia will put them in the driving seat in their pursuit of qualification.
