International Football Federation Association (FIFA) president Sepp Blatter has wished the three Zambia national soccer team players who were recently injured in a road traffic accident a quick recovery.


Blatter sent a message of good will to defender Nyambe Mulenga, goalkeeper Satchmo Chakawa and midfielder Changwe Kalale.


ZANIS Sports reports that the FIFA president sent his message on his twitter to Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya.


And FAZ president Kalusha Bwalya promised to deliver the good will message on behalf of the FIFA president to the three injured players.


Mulenga, Chakawa and Kalale were involved in a road traffic accident on Sunday, December 14, 2014 when a Toyota Prado coming from Lusaka collided with their Zesco United executive bus which was coming from Ndola near Green Restaurant in Kabwe on the Great North Road.


The Zesco bus had nine people on board and was taking the three players to Lusaka to join the local Chipolopolo squad to start preparations for the 2015 Equatorial Guinea Africa cup of nations.


The driver of the Zesco bus and the three people on the Toyota Prado died on the spot.


Mulenga is admitted at the Lusaka Trust Hospital while Chakawa is admitted to Kabwe general hospital while Kalale is at the University Teaching Hospital (UTH) in Lusaka.


Minister of Youth and Sport Chishimba Kambwili yesterday said plans were underway to evacuate Changwe Kalale for specialised treatment to South Africa once he stabilises.
