The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) is concerned about the limited game-time for some of the Zambia national team players at big clubs in the Absa Premiership.
Kaizer Chiefs striker Lazarous Kambole (nine league starts and 0 goals) and Orlando Pirates’ Augustine Mulenga (eight league starts and 1 goal) are being closely monitored back home for their lack of regular game-time at the Soweto giants, according to FAZ general secretary Adrian Kashala.
“Mulenga and Kambole are national team players. It worries us when (they are not in) the line-up or not being on the pitch for their respective clubs,” he said.
“Our interest is to see that our players (who) have gone to play professional footbal, are playing so that they can improve their skill.
"We also want to make sure that when we call them to the national team, we are calling people that are active in action and are able to give us results when they report for national team duty,” added Kashala.
