Copper Queens vs Costa Rica probable lineups
Goalkeeper: Daniela Solera
Defenders: Maria Coto, Fabiola Villalobos, Mariana Benavides, Maria Paula Elizondo
Midfielders: Melissa Herrera, Cristin Granados, Katherine Alvarado, Gabriella Guillen
Strikers: Maria Paula Salas, Priscila Chinchilla
Zambia Copper Queens
Goalkeeper: Catherine Musonda
Defenders: Margaret Belemu, Agness Musase, Lushomo Mweemba, Martha Tembo
Midfielders: Ireen Lungu, Evarine Katongo, Susan Banda, Siomala Mapepa, Racheal Kundananji
Strikers: Barbra Banda
Bruce Mwape will be glad to have Catherine Musonda back in the fold, as she missed the Copper Queens' last match due to a red card. Zambia lined up in a 4-2-3-1 formation against Spain, and we expect something similar today, with Barbra Banda leading the charge.
On the other hand, Amelia Valverde adopted a 4-4-1-1 formation in Costa Rica's loss to Japan. There are no new injured or suspended players on either team.
