ROAD TO COSTA RICA 2022: Haluboono Names 27…as Ghana Arrive ahead of Saturday’s Clash
Zambia Under-20 Women National Team coach Charles Haluboono has named 27 players for Saturday’s Costa Rica 2022 FIFA World Cup third round, first leg qualifier against Ghana.
Haluboono has named the bulk of players that played in the second round where they dispatched Malawi 8-1 on aggregate to book a date with the Black Princesses.
Some of the notable inclusions in Haluboono’s 27-member squad are 2021 Young Player of the Year Evarine Katongo who is the captain of the side and the prolific Eneless Phiri.
Two more rounds are left in the qualifying campaign in which only two teams will go to Costa Rica from Africa.
Meanwhile Ghana has arrived in the country ahead of Saturday’s match billed for Nkoloma Stadium.
The Black Princesses arrived at 14:40 hours aboard Ethiopian Airlines.
Ghana qualified to this round after Mauritania withdrew from participation paving way for the Black Princesses.
