Janza Says “There Is Cover For Kalaba and Sunzu”

National team assistant coach Honour Janza says the Chipolopolo can shake off the pressure of playing at home against Lesotho and Sudan in World Cup qualifiers if they are mentally strong.

Janza said the team had enough cover for injured Stopilla Sunzu and Rainford Kalaba should the duo not be available for June 8 and 15 qualifiers at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Sunzu has been given a four week break from football after undergoing knee surgery while it is yet to be ascertained how long Kalaba will be out after being on the sidelines since May 12 after sustaining a calf injury.

“We just have to have a very positive attitude we are happy that we have two games at home. We need a positive attitude to win this game. There will be no pressure if we are mentally strong,” Janza said.

“Home ground can be good but what is very important is the application from the players.”

He said that the technical bench would wait for the medics to give the final word on the injured players.
