The Southern Africans are lining up warm-up games with the continent’s giants in the build-up to next year’s campaign in Tokyo
In March, Zambia defeated Cameroon 2-1 in Lusaka to qualify for the first Olympic Games in their history on away goals after drawing 4-4 on aggregate following a 3-2 first-leg defeat in Yaounde.
The Olympics, initially scheduled to take place between July 24 and August 9, 2020, was postponement by a year due to the coronavirus outbreak.
With six Fifa windows before the tournament in Tokyo, the Southern Africans are planning a preparation camp in Spain during the international break.
“The women’s team is scheduled to play Nigeria, Cameroon and South Africa,” FAZ vice-president Rix Mweemba told Daily Mail.
“We believe that these teams will give them a good run as they prepare to meet the world’s best.
“Preparations to camp in Spain are already in the pipeline and it is our prayer that the Covid-19 cases will soon reduce as the country is one of the worst-hit.”
Zambia are only the fifth African side to qualify for the Olympics’ women’s football tournament, after Cameroon, Nigeria, South Africa and Zimbabwe.
