Bragging rights will be at stake as the Zambia Copper Queens take on Costa Rica at the FIFA Women's World Cup. In this article, we'll see how both teams could potentially line up ahead of this match. Zambia Copper Queens vs Costa Rica will take place at the FMG Stadium Waikato, kick-off time is 08:00 BST.

Copper Queens vs Costa Rica probable lineups

Costa Rica

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.
