Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) have announced next month’s 2018 World Cup qualifier between Zambia and Nigeria in Ndola will now be played on October 9.
The kick-off time will be announced later. This new date is six days outside the October 3 date most people especially in Nigeria have been working with as the date for the fixture.
Observers informed that the new FAZ administration has not been proactive by the choice of this date as it will not allow them to fit in a warm-up game during the week-long FIFA friendly window to prepare for the trip to Cameroon in November in continuation of the World Cup qualifying series.
Both teams last met at the 2013 AFCON in South Africa and in ended in a 1-1 draw in Nelspruit.
