Collins Mbeusma is one of three high-profile foreign-based players dropped on the revised list for Zambia’s 2010 World/Africa Cup Group C away qualifier against Egypt in Cairo on March 29.
The Mamelodi Sundowns striker was part of the earlier 29-member list unveiled on March 3 by Faz.
Others from that original list but omitted from the new 23-member team announced during Wednesday’s Faz press briefing in Lusaka include striker James Chamanga of Dalian Hai Chang in China.
Also dropped is livewire winger Clifford Mulenga who is currently on-loan from South African side Bidvest Wit to fellow PSL club Thanda Royal Zulu.
Renard has also dropped four key players from his Bronze-medal winning CHAN team.
The quartet is Green Buffaloes goalkeeper Davy Kaumbwa, Power Dynamos defensive midfielder Francis Kasonde including the Zanaco midfield duo of Henry Banda and Ignatius Lwipa.
Back in the team is Zesco United defender Nyambe Mulenga who was orginally left out of the list released earlier this month despite a good outing at CHAN.
Leading the local contingent of call-ups is Zanaco striker Given Singuluma who scored a record setting 5 goals at the CHAN tournament.
However, Power midfielder Kennedy Mudenda who had an eye-catching outing at the CHAN despite playing as a substitute in the group stage matches and semifinal has been ignored.
The team will go into camp in Johannesburg this weekend with part of the list of eight home-based players flying out to South Africa on Sunday.
The team will be trimmed from 23 to 20 prior to departure for Cairo.
