Chipolopolo Assistant coach Moses Sichone now has a full house ahead of Friday’s friendly match following the arrival of six Bullets.
The sextet comprises Serbian based Kings Kangwa of Crvena Zvezda, Evans Kangwa of Arsenal Tula in Russia, Allan Kapila, Ricky Banda, Benedict Chepeshi and Charles Kalumba all of Red Arrows.
The group joined the rest of the squad for the afternoon session at the Modibo Keita Stadium in Bamako.
Moses Sichone who will be in charge in the absence of Aljosa Asanovic was dealt a big blow by injuries to Denmark based winger Lubambo Musonda and Italy based Lameck Banda.
Sichone will also be without Tanzania based midfielder Clatous Chota Chama who has been excused due to family reasons.
Zambia and the Eagles of Mali will square off on Friday at the Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako at 19:00 hours GMT (21H00 CAT).
Zambia will again play Mali on Monday, September 26th in the second A grade FIFA international friendly match.
The Chipolopolo are using the matches as part of preparation for the Ivory Coast 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers that will take place next year in March.
