The performance versus South Korea will serve as a barometer for the Copper Queens’ readiness for the 2023 Women’s World Cup, according to players ESTHER SIAMFUKO and OCHUMBA OSEKE.
The games, according to striker OSEKE, are an excellent practice opportunity because they will expose the team to foreign competition.
According to OSEKE, playing high-profile games against groups like South Korea will help the team get ready to face their Asian opponents Japan in Group C.
Speaking to ZNBC Sports News in Lusaka, SIAMFUKO remarked that the trip to Asia offers an excellent chance for the players with foreign bases and local bases to get along.
According to SIAMFUKO, having a mix of international and local expertise in the squad is beneficial since it will allow players the chance to hone their talents in front of the World Cup.
