Zambia will be without one of their key players when they take on Nigeria on Sunday in a World Cup 2018 qualifiers tie at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

They were forced into reshuffling their squad for the game after injury ruled out Kaizer Chief talismanic forward Lewis Macha for the tie against Nigeria.

Macha suffered an injury last month but Zambia were hoping he will recover on time to play in the game against Nigeria, but medical checks revealed he won’t be fit for the tie.

He has been replaced by Hapoel Ra’anana of Israel winger Rodgers Kola while another Misheck Chiala was also recalled two days after he was released alongside ten other players.

However Chiala will be on standby owing to the injury picked up by Clatous Chama while playing in a league game for Zesco United against Konkola Blades.
