Leicester City Squad Omits AFCON-Bound Players for Upcoming Match
Zambian striker Patson Daka’s inclusion in the Chipolopolo Boys’ training camp in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday marks a significant development for the national team.
Having been sidelined along with Nigerian talents Wilfred Ndidi and Kelechi Iheanacho from Leicester City’s recent EFL Championship match against Huddersfield, Daka is expected to bring his prowess and goal-scoring ability to the forefront as one of Avram Grant’s key players.
At 25 years old, Daka’s impressive performances during the qualifiers, where he played a pivotal role by netting crucial goals for Zambia, highlight his importance to the team’s aspirations.
As Zambia gears up for the challenges in Group F, featuring formidable opponents such as Morocco, DR Congo, and Tanzania, the significance of Daka’s presence becomes even more pronounced.
The coastal city of Morocco is set to serve as the base for the teams, providing a strategic and conducive environment for the players and coaching staff to fine-tune their strategies and foster team cohesion.
With Daka leading the charge, Zambia aims to make a mark in the upcoming matches, leveraging the talent and determination that have characterized their journey through the qualifiers.
