Zambia-jog300The match will be Chipolopolo’s last of two practice games during their current four-day training camp in South Africa en-route to the 2016 African Nations Championship (Chan) in Rwanda.

Zambia will host the Sundowns junior team on January 12 at Muller Ground in Johannesburg where they will play Angola 48 hours earlier in another friendly game on January 10.

Chipolopolo arrived in Johannesburg on Friday from Zambia where they had held a three-week residential training camp in Lusaka.

The team held its first training session just after landing in South Africa at University of Johannesburg Stadium but the afternoon session was washed away by rains just 25 minutes into practice.

Zambia made up for it on Saturday morning with over an hours’ training at UJ Stadium before taking a break for the day ahead of Sunday’s friendly clash with Angola who are also bound for the Chan.

Chipolopolo are due to fly out to Kigali on Wednesday ahead of the opening ceremony and tournament kick-off on January 16.

Zambia are in Group D where they will face Zimbabwe on January 19, Uganda in their penultimate pool match on the 23rd and Mali on the 27th.
