The African Legends side also features the likes of former Cameroon striker Patrick Mboma, Ghana’s Asamoah Gyan, former Senegalese star El Hadji Diof and Nigerian legends Jay Jay Okocha and Nwankwo Kanu, among others.

The home side will have the likes of Christopher Katongo, Stopira Sunzu and Raymond Kalaba among others who brought AFCON glory to Zambia back in 2012.

Former Chipolopolo skipper, Football Association of Zambia President and Coach Kalusha Bwalya together with Togolese Legend Emmanuel Adebayor will be first to arrive in Lusaka this Thursday with the other legends expected a day later.
