LUSAKA, July 25 (Xinhua) -- Zambian national soccer team coach Aggrey Chiyangi said his players are ready to face Botswana in the coming African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier on Friday.

"The doctors have given us a report, there are no injuries. The team spirit is excellent, the moral is high, and we just have to do better tomorrow. The team is ready for business tomorrow," the coach said in statement posted on the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) website.
