“I would like to thank the Federation and the Ministry of Health for giving the players and the technical bench the vaccine. This will go a long way in ensuring the safe return of the national team to active competition ahead of the busy calendar in our bid towards AWCON qualification, which will play a major role in our quest towards our first World cup qualification,” said Coach David Ouma.

The Zambia friendly match will be part of the preparation to qualify for the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations to be held in Morocco that will be able to earn them one of the four direct entry slots to the 2023 World Cup that will be held in Australia and New Zealand.
