“Injuries will never leave a coach with a free mind,” Zambia coach Honour Janza told the Zambia Daily Mail.

“We have Mweene, Chisamba and Nathan is also limping. We just hope they recover because we need everybody.The injuries are minor all the same (but) we need them to recover in time.”

Zambia are currently midway through a three week pre-2015 Africa Cup training camp in Johannesburg.
