Fourth official: Thomas Bramall. 

VAR: David Coote.

Meanwhile, former Chelsea boss Avram Grant has been appointed as the head coach of the Zambian national team.

The Israeli has agreed a two-year contract, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) announced on Thursday.

“I was looking for the right challenge and that’s why I chose Zambia,” Grant said at a press conference in Lusaka.

“I came here because of the challenge and I hope when I leave here I will look around and say we did a good job and made a good foundation for the future.

“I think Zambia has the potential, we have set the targets of what we want to achieve.”
