Nigeria, Zambia Name Starting Eleven

Published: January 25, 2013
Nigeria, Zambia Name Starting can exclusively reveal that Herve Renard has tinkered with his starting line up and made two high profiles.

The Frenchman has axed Hichani Himoonde for his poor showing and replaced him with Davies Nkausu in central defence and that means Emmanuel Mbola starts at left back with Joseph Musonda shifting to right full back.

As earlier revealed by the ZamFoot Crew, Emmanuel Mayuka starts but it will be Collins Mbesuma who will settle for a place on the bench in what is a tactical change. Renard will be banking on Mayuka’s pacy for the slow Nigerian defenders.

Chisamba Lungu has shrugged off an foot injury to start.

Meanwhile Stephen Keshi is understood to have given a starting berth to Victor Moses while Joseph Yobo is not in the starting line up.

Zambia Starting XI: 16. Kennedy Mweene -4. Joseph Musonda,  6. Davies Nkausu, 13. Stopilla Sunzu, 18. Emmanuel Mbola, -3.Chisamba Lungu, 8. Isaac Chansa, 19. Nathan Sinkala, 17. Rainford Kalaba - 11. Christopher Katongo,  20. Emmanuel Mayuka
