We met up with the Men’s senior national team in Ndola Zambia yesterday evening whilst they prepare for the last game against Angola in a four nation tournament. We had a very exhaustive and informative discussion of about two and half hours. The Warriors highlighted a number of issues pertaining to their careers at Club and National team level. We also had a questionnaire for them to fill in where we asked them about their own opinion on professional footballers
1. Playing more matches in a calendar year which meant fewer rest days between matches which can lead to fatigue, lower performance and injury.
2. Their travelling arrangements when coming for the national team
3.The negative impact on their recovery, performance and/or health due to the hectic travel schedule
