FAZ not keen on South American opposition

Kalu-InterviewThe Football Association of Zambia FAZ says its weighing the best option on the offers they have received for a friendly on the 15th of March which is a FIFA day.

FAZ president Kalush Bwalya disclosed that the association will state the team Zambia will play once the paper work is completed.

“We hoped that the Heroes Stadium would be ready, but since it has not been handed over its a bit difficulty,” Kalusha said.

” We have been playing a lot of games away so we were looking more at playing at home.”

“We just have to see what is best for the team. We have offers to play very far away, but I think its not in the best interest for us to be in South America in this period because I don’t think we will gain something,” he said.

“What we want is to start slowly and build the team slowly.”

The national team which has been inactive since minting bronze in the Cecafa tournament in Kenya is expected to play an international friendly in March as they prepare for the 2015 AFCON qualifiers which kick off in August.
