Zambia on Tuesdays kicked off preparations for this Saturdays 2016 CHAN final round qualifier against Mozambique.

George Lwandamina’s domestic-based team gathered at this weekends match venue in Ndola on Monday after landing from UAE where Zambia lost 3-0 to Egypt in friendly Abu Dhabi.

Eighteen players including three Power Dynamos players who were axed from the Egypt friendly after the club refused to released them because of a crucial top 3 clash against Zesco United last are in camp.

Defender Christopher Munthali plus midfielder Kennedy Mudenda and Benson Sakala were all part of the first day of training at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Tuesday.

However, missing was Power’s bench-warming midfielder Patson Daka who is reportedly away on trial in Spain.

And Lwandamina has summoned Lusaka Dynamos’ teenage striker Conlyde Luchanga who has impressed in his debut Super Division season for the promoted side.

Luchanga, who has scored 8 goals for Dynamos, is set for his debut senior call-up just weeks after Fighton Simukonda handed him an Under-23 call-up for November’s 2015 CAF U23 Cup tournament team selection.

Meanwhile, Zambia will travel to Maputo for the final leg on October 24 with the winner over both legs qualifying for the 2016 tournament in Rwanda.

Chipolopolo has failed to qualify for the last two editions of the CHAN tournament since winning Bronze at the inaugural tournament in Cote d’Ivoire in 2009.
