On the other hand,Zambia is taking the match so seriously as they go 4 a win.They have included the likes of Rainford Kalaba,Felix Katongo,Allan Mukuka,Nathan Sinkala and Kondwani Mtonga,among others.These are high profile players who will make Malawi have a tough time.Kalaba and Mukuka alone will cause alot of damage on the wings.
