Egyptian-based striker Ronald Kampamba has not been picked for Zambia’s friendly date against The Pharaohs.
Egypt will host Zambia in a friendly away in Dubai on October 11 in the two sides first meeting since November 14, 2013 that The Pharaohs won 2-0 in Cairo.
Kampamba of Egyptian club Wadi Degla is missing from the six-0 foreign-based call-ups for the friendly after he was also axed for the 2017 AFCON qualifier against Kenya away in Nairobi on September 6 and follow-up friendly against Gabon in Lusaka two days later.
The foreign callups are in-form striker Collins Mbesuma of Mpumalanga Black Aces, Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene and defender Stopilla Sunzu of French Ligue 1 club Lille.
The DR Congo based midfielder duo of Nathan Sinkala and captain Rainford Kalaba are in the team together with Lubambo Musonda of Armenian club Gandzasar.
The rest of the team will comprise home-based players as coach George Lwandamina prepares for October 17 date against Mozambique in a 2016 CHAN final round, first leg qualifier at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Lwandamina’s home-based team will enter camp on October 4.
