William Njobvu

Midfielder William Njobvu joins long list of Zambia withdrawals for Tuesday’s Brazil friendly in Beijing.

The Cyprus -based midfielder will not travel for the game after failing to secure his Chinese Visa for the trip.

Njobvu’s agent Nir Karin said it was disappointing that his player failed to make the trip.

“William’s visa problem is fault of his club Enosis Paralimni,” Karin said.

“They didn’t renew work permit on time and to get visa he needs work permit of Cyprus.

“William went times to the embassy but failed due to rules.”

Njobvu becomes the seventh player to withdraw from the friendly.

South African PSL based trio of Collins Mbesuma, Mukuka Mulenga and Davies Nkausu have withdrawn due to injury.

TP Mazembe’s Rainford Kalaba, and Nathan Sinkala are reportedly ill while their club mate Stopilla Sunzu is said to be carrying a knee injury and were not released by the DR Congo club.
