Zambia Football Federation has announced plans to camp the women’s national team in Nigeria ahead of the next month’s Africa Women’s Cup of Nations in Ghana.
The She-polopolo will be making a second appearance in the biennial international football showpiece this year since their debut in 2014 after missing the 10th edition in Cameroon in 2016.
And the Zambia FA general secretary Adrian Kashala has offered a reason behind their choice to camp the team in the West African nation by the Federation.
“I also wish to inform the public that the women national team will have a camp in West Africa before the Africa Women’s Cup of Nations,” the scribe told the Zambia FA website.
“We organized a camp for our team and they will be in Nigeria. While in Nigeria, they will play a series of friendly matches before the tournament.
"We are doing this to help the team acclimatize to conditions in West Africa before the tournament.”
The southern Africans would be hoping to excel this time on their second attempt in the women’s football event, which is expected to produce three-team for the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France.
