Watch out for this Zambian player:

For this match, the player to watch will be Kelvin Kampamba, Zambia's center midfielder has become a focal point of the midfield and has contributed offensively and defensively when his team requires it. Kampamba could be the unbalancing factor in the course of the match for Ivory Coast to take the victory.

Watch out for this player from Ivory Coast:

Star of Italian soccer and a mainstay at Milan, Franck Kessie will be the player to watch for the Ivory Coast squad, this season, the defensive midfielder or holding midfielder contested every ball as if it was his last and has become a boss of bosses to stop the opposition's onslaught so Zambia will have to figure out how to try to get past this great defensive midfielder.

The Zambian team will be looking to be present at the next African Cup of Nations, however, their preparation for these qualifying matches has been somewhat diminished since, out of 5 qualifying matches, they only played around three where they lost 3-1 against Iraq, by the same score against Congo and one more 2-1 defeat against Benin. To continue this path towards the Qualifiers, they were to face Guinea and India, however, both duels were cancelled so they should arrive in rhythm based on their training for this first match.
