Zambia host Congo Brazaville in a FIFA World Cup qualifier at Ndola’s Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Friday night.
Zambia trainer Avram Grant is expected to make two changes.
Goalkeepers Lawrence Mulenga and Francis Mwansa are battling it out for a starting berth.
Mulenga came to stardom after his impressive performance against Ivory Coast.
But since then the Power Dynamos goalkeeper had had niggling injuries that has allowed Mwansa to take his claim.
That was a problem; I will not lie to you,” Grant said last week.
“But the last two goalkeepers played well.
“Lawrence proved himself against Ivory Coast, and Francis was very good in the last two games [Egypt and Uganda]. I dont know why he is not playing in the league.
Despite having started Zambia’s last five matches, Mwansa has been playing second choice at Green Buffaloes.
I must tell you, there is something I dont understand,” Grant added
“When we bring someone to the national team, he plays well, then he doesn’t not to play for his team. I have never seen that but its the decision of their [club] coaches.
I will not tell them what to do but its a little bit strange because Francis was very good against Egypt but since then he has only played one game.
