Zambia will be playing with a lone striker with three supporting offensive midfielders against Ghana, according to inside information from the Chipolopolo camp.
Coach Herve Renard has opted for this attacking formation in his bid to clinch a famous win against the Black Stars in the 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.
This preferred formation of the French trainer however does not involved captain Christopher Katongo.
Rainford Kalaba, Fwayo Tembo and Chisamba Lungu will be the creative force behind lone striker Jacob Mulenga.
The Utrecht striker is however a doubt for the match on Friday as he is reportedly injured and yet to arrive to the Zambia camp.
This could therefore lead to a change of the entire formation with Katongo and Emmanuel Mayuka selected to once again lead the lines against Ghana.
This was the same striking partnership that saw the Chipolopolo beat the Black Stars on their way to Nations Cup glory in 2012.
Renard is however unhappy with the recent form of his trusted captain and could therefore drop him to the bench against Ghana.
Nathan Sinkala and Kondwani Mtonga will be the main anchormen in midfield to protect the back four which will feature Davies Nkausu, Bronson Chama, Stopilla Sunzu and Jospeh Musoonda.
