The Zambia Under-17 Squad looks set for the 2016 COSAFA Youth Championship that starts on Friday in Mauritius.

The Junior Chipolopolo team coached by Oswald Mutapa travelled to Mauritius on Tuesday morning after weeks of preparations in Lusaka.

Zambia plays the opener against Kenya on July 22 before facing Malawi two days later while the final group match against Madagascar will be played on July 26.

Meanwhile, Group A comprises hosts Mauritius, Seychelles, Namibia and South Africa.

The squad:

Goalkeepers: Benson Mwale, Edward Mwanza

Defenders: Justine Mwanza, Benjamin Phiri, Kasonde Mulenga, Hillary Mwiinga, Danny Kunda, Ponsirio Kapampa

Midfielders: Musonda Kalale, Nkandu Kunda, Charles Bwalya, Jonathan Tembo, Chanda Mukuka, Sam Mbewe

Strikers: George Nyimbili, Nicholas Mulilo, Samuel Kabwe, Damiano Kola Sam, Castro Siakotela, Mwiza Siwale
