Uganda’s Nations Cup qualifying opponents Zambia have expressed sadness with the state of the pitch at Namboole Stadium, the venue for the October 13 decisive match.

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) is not leaving anything to chance and decided to dispatch its vice-president, Boniface Mwamelo to check on the facilities in Kampala less than a month before the Chipolopolo play the crucial 2013 AFCON qualifier against Uganda.

According to the Times of Zambia publication, Mwamelo described the Namboole pitch as “very bad”.true

Coach Herve Renard retained his 24-man squad he had summoned for the first assignment against the Cranes, for the return match.

After beating Uganda 1-0, Renard assured the nation that the Chipolopolo would be stronger for the return leg.

Meanwhile, Zambia Voluntary Soccer Fans Association (ZAVOSOFA) patron Peter Makembo says the association has secured cheaper rates for a charter plane to Kampala on Kenya Airways.

The Chipolopolo Soccer Fans Association (CSFA) has also organised a plane to ferry fans for the game and the offer will include a replica Chipolopolo jersey, Chipolopolo golf T-shirt, transport in Uganda and a match ticket.
