MIDFIELDER Enock Mwepu will not be part of the team that will play Zambia’s back-to-back World Cup qualifiers against Tunisia and Mauritania after failing a fitness test.

Zambia is in camp preparing for the two dead rubber matches with all but two foreign-based players that were called not making it to the team on account of fitness.

Team doctor George Phiri said in an interview on Wednesday that Enock Mwepu is the latest player to fail to make it for camp after he sustained an injury with his club.

“I wish to confirm that we have received all the foreign based players except the two that is Enock Mwepu and Edward Chilufya. These have not come because of the injuries which they sustained during the games at their bases.

“Enock Mwepu has an injury in one of the muscles the adductor, the hamstrings so he is unable to join us, same with Edward Chilufya, they are receiving treatment from their bases and unable to make it for these games which will take place soon,” Phiri said.

Meanwhile, striker Patson Daka describes the two matches as intense games.

“We do not expect the games to be easy, we have to take them seriously we know we will not make it to the World Cup but we just have to take this game seriously because it is the beginning of our next way forward because we have to make sure that it gives us the direction of where we want to go next,” Daka said.
