Zambia take on Uganda at the Nelson Mandela stadium in Kampala in new trainer Dario Bonetti’s first match since the departure of Frenchman Herve Renard who led the Chipolopolo to an impressive Nations Cup performance in January.
Date: Wednesday 11 August
Venue: Nelson Mandela Stadium, Kampala
KickOff: 15:30 EAT, 14:30hors CAT (Zambian time)
Since Renard left to join Angola, the Chipolopolo have played one match – a pre 2010 FIFA World Cup match against Chile in Calama.
Bonetti will line-up a squad packed with local talent as he prepares for 2012 Africa Cup qualifying campaign, which starts next month.
Zambia hosts Comoros on 4 September.
Bonetti says the match is important; adding that he will take it very seriously as he begins work toward the aim of winning the championship for Zambia for the first time in the Gabon/Equatorial Guinea tournament.
