 Zambia To Start 17-Year Old Against Super Eagles

Reports gathered from has it that Zambia are planning on unleashing 18-year-old forward Patson Daka on the Super Eagles, when both teams clash in Ndola in the 2018 World Cup qualifiers on Sunday.
Coach Wedson Nyirenda handed invitation to the highly rated teen after ignoring former captain and legend Christopher Katongo ahead of the clash against Nigeria.
Daka who plays for local side Power Dynamos scored against Nigeria at the Africa U-17 championship in Niger Republic last year when Nigeria defeated them 1-3.
Although experienced forward Winston Kalengo and Collins Mbesuma are favourites to start against Nigeria on Sunday, Daka is being lined up for the role of an impact substitute in the game.
