Zambia’s contingent has left Lusaka for Accra after refusing fly out on Wednesday after alleging they were being frustrated by Ghana officials.
The 80-man delegation had wanted to land at the Kumasi airport although Ghana’s aviation had told them their aircraft was too big for the domestic airport.
The Copper Bullets thought it was a move by Ghanaian officials to make things difficult for them.
“The chartered plane carrying the Zambia national football team has departed for Kumasi at 08:30hrs this morning,” a Football Association of Zambia tweet on Thursday read.
The Chipolopolo flew into Lusaka on Wednesday after preparing in Johannesburg.
They were scheduled to depart for Ghana at 13:00 hours but only boarded the plane an hour later.
They were made to endure two more hours on a stationary plane before disembarking and heading back to the hotel.
Zambia’s delegation was led by Sports Deputy Minister, Stephen Masumba and also included Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president, Kalusha Bwalya.
