THE Zambian national senior men’s team shook off the 2-1 loss to Kenya with a morning recovery session at the iconic Kasarani Stadium in Nairobi yesterday, before departure to South Africa.Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic and his technical bench ran the players through the paces after a rigorous 90 minutes with the Harambee Stars on Friday.The team will meet Bafana Bafana at the Royal Bafokeng Stadium today.Prior to the Kenya game, Micho had indicated that the Chipolopolo were in a new stage of revival and both local and foreign bsed players would have to earn a spot in the national team.“We are in a rejuvenating process, this is not a process that goes progressively in one way.We know that slip ups will be there but our attention to details and players’ readiness to give everything to the jersey.”Micho also said foreign based players would have to do more to win his favour as there were many local players knocking on his door.“We want them to bring that touch of professionalism and seniority, maturity in competitive environment. This a big test because in order to be called for November they need to prove the point. They need to prove the point to themselves and the nation that they are capable and able to make the difference,” he said.“If the player playing outside does not show the double aspect touch of quality and moment of brilliance on the field of play then it is unfair to close the door on the young upcoming and locally based players. I am expecting them to show why they have been called.”Zambia has played two international friendly matches during the FIFA window starting with a 1-0 win over Malawi before being edged out by Kenya.Collins Sikombe was on target in the Malawi match while Emmanuel Chabula scored the consolation goal in the 2-1 loss to Kenya.
