Andrew Mutambo Sinkala (born 18 June 1979 in Chingola) is a Zambian football midfielder[1][2] who plays for Viktoria Köln.

His late father, Moffat Mutambo, also played for Nchanga Rangers and national soccer team as a defender.

Andrew captained the Zambia U-20 National football team to both the African Youth Nations Youth World Cup in Nigeria in 1999. He also won his first senior cap in the same year against DRC in an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

He represented the Zambian national team at the African Cup of Nations in 2000, 2002, 2006 and 2010. In 2012, Sinkalas' brother Nathan Sinkala scored what was considered by many to be the best penalty in Zambia's 8–7 shootout win over Ivory Coast in the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations final in Libreville, Gabon.
