Cameroun are expected in the country next week and will set up base in Lusaka.

The Chipolopolo Women have been training at Lusaka’s Polo club and Coach Charles Bwale says he is so far happy with the response from the girls. “We have intensified our training and we look forward to stepping up our training program when we go into full time residential camp on September 1” said the former Nkana defender.

Zambia has been placed in the same group with hosts Namibia, Ivory Coast and Nigeria who have won the title eight times since its inception in 1991. The tournament will however be without the defending Champions, Equatorial Guinea.
