Copper Queens coach, Mwape, names provisional squad for 2024 Paris Olympic women’s qualifiers (see list)


Copper Queens coach, Bruce Mwape, has named his provisional squad ahead of the 2024 Paris Olympic women’s football tournament qualifiers, where Zambia will face Ghana.

In his lineup, Mwape returned most of the players that completed the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAFCON) qualification task against Angola.

He added the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) women’s super league duo of defender, Tabo Miselo, and striker, Florence Banda, who had stood out for the parliamentarians.

Green Buffaloes striker, Kabange Mupopo, also returns to the Copper Queens squad for the first time in eight years.

Elite Ladies midfielder, Comfort Selemani, who missed the WAFCON qualifier matches against Angola in December had also been included.

Red Arrows captain, Susan Banda, missed out of the Ghana matches due to injury sustained in the FAZ Women’s Super League match against Police Dove Queens FC on January 27, 2024.

The first leg match against the Black Queens of Ghana would be played at the Baba Yara Sports stadium in Kumasi on Friday 23, February and would be followed by the reverse fixture at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola five days later.
