The Chipolopolo had a first time feel of the Godswill Akpabio Stadium on Friday.
Before the start of their training session which was held behind close doors, Nyirenda had a brief chat with the media at the stadium.
Already they are without three key players in Rainford Kalaba‎, Emmanuel Banda and Edward Chilufya due to injury and work permit issues, but the coach insist they can cope without the trio.
‎”Kalaba is just a player like any other player, so we have made this team consisting of other 18 players, there is no player who is indispensable in Zambia this time, we only depend on who is going to deliver on that day and according to our plan,” he said.
Speaking on the fitness of top striker, Patson Daka, the coach revealed the forward has recovered from the knock that made him pull out of their training session in Abuja yesterday .
“Daka is here, he is okay, the only ones ‎that are not with us due to injury is Bernard Mwila and Emmanuel Banda and Edward Chilufya is not here because his team are working on his permit in Sweden. So the rest of the players are here, and I think we have a good side that will do the job tomorrow,” Nyirenda concluded.
