A good turnout of foreign-based players marked day-one of Zambia’s training camp in Johannesburg today.
Four European based players including another six based in South Africa have joined the team.
Striker Chris Katongo of German Bundesliga club Armenia Bielefeld and midfielder Isaac Chansa from Helsingborg in Sweden have both arrived in camp.
The French-based midfield duo of Felix Katongo and Stophira Sunzu of French Ligue 2 side Chateauroux have also joined camp.
And all six South African-based call-ups have also joined camp.
They are goalkeepers Kalililo Kakonje and Kennedy Mweene of Amazulu and Free State Stars respectively.
Amazulu defender Kampamba Chintu, Davies Nkausu of SuperSport United and Joseph Musonda from Lamotville Golden Arrows complete the list.
Expected later today are midfielder Rainford Kalaba from Gil Vincente in Portugal, Misheck Lungu of Hungarian club Kecskemeti and striker Fwayo Tembo of Etoile de Sahel in Tunisia.
Jacob Mulenga failed to travel with his club mate but is also expected to join Zambia camp in Johannesburg Monday evening.
However, Mulenga’s club currently lie third from bottom and relegation threatened Chateauroux have a crucial home game on Friday against 11th placed Dijon and it is uncertain whether the dependable striker will join the team in Johannesburg.
Zambia leave for Cairo on Thursday ahead of Sundays opening 2010 World/Africa Group C match against hosts Egypt.
