Chipolopolo train in Abuja, leave for Uyo

Apparently to maximize their time in Abuja, the visiting Zambian senior national team, the Chipolopolo trained yesterday morning (Thursday) in the nation’s capital ahead of their same day flight to Uyo, the Akwa Ibom state capital.
The team which touched down in Nigeria’s capital city on Wednesday checked into the hotel in Abuja and sensing that they will not depart to the match venue until late in the afternoon , the Wedson Nyerinda tutored team decide to have their first training session in Nigeria at the FIFA Goal Project located at the Package B of the ultra modern Abuja National Stadium.
Nyerinda who now has the full complement of his players drilled the team on the synthetic pitch although the winner-takes- all match will take place at the lush green pitch of the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium, Uyo on Saturday.
Nigeria with 10 points is seating pretty well in the driver’s seat in the FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 African qualifiers Group B while Zambia has 7 points to place second even as the winner on Saturday automatically qualifies for the Mundial.
