The Zambia Under-17 national team underwent the mandatory Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) on Monday evening at City Clinic in Port Louis.

Cosafa has incorporated a mandatory MRI process for all the players participating in the juniors’ championship.

The MRI is being conducted in conjunction with the Confederation of African Football (CAF) who are using the Cosafa as the qualifier for the 2019 Tanzania U-17 Africa Cup of Nations.

Prior to the heading to Mauritius, FAZ had the lads undergo MRI at the Italian Orthopaedic Hospital in Lusaka.
With the MRI out of the way, the lads will now be firmly focussed on the task of defending the trophy.

The process was overseen by seasoned CAF certified medical practitioner Dr Joseph Kabungo.

Tenant Chilumba’s charges kick off their title defence on July 19 against Mozambique before taking on Lesotho in their penultimate game on July 22.

Zambia will face South Africa two days later in their final Group B match.

The defending champions are lodged at Casa Florida Hotel and Spa in Perebere.
