Phiri Jnr replaces Mduduzi Ndatsane after Zambian Coach Wedson Nyirenda placed faith in the Malawian international winger.

The midfielder described the captaincy as “an honour”, saying having an armband in the foreign land and in a team he is new, gives him motivation.

He said the armband comes with “lots of responsibilities”to guide the team on field.”

But Phiri Jnr said he will be able to handle the “pressure.”
