Enock Mwepu Has Been Named Skipper for the Copper Bullets
Premier League side Brighton & Hove Albions’ Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu has been named skipper for the Copper Bullets that takes on Mauritania this afternoon at the Olympic Stadium in Nouakchott.
Mwepu was once a captain at his former club Austrian Bundesliga giants, Redbull Salzburg.
The lanky midfield engineer is widely viewed as long term Chipolopolo captain with the armband having been worn by Kennedy Mweene, Kabaso Chongo, Adrian Chama, Evans Kangwa, and Lubambo Musonda since Rainford Kalaba.
Mwepu is also expected to orchestrate the Chipolopolo Boys play from the middle of the park and create chances for the lethal Patson Daka upfront.
Zambia plays Mauritania at 18:00 hours Central African Time (CAT) in a Group B tie for the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup race.
