Sports Winston Kalengo to miss Cameroon clash

Winston Kalengo will miss the Zambia-Cameroon clash.

The striker from AC Leopards in Congo-Brazzaville limped into camp with an injury.

Zambia team manager Stanley Kaseko said despite travelling with the team for the Zimbabwe friendly, it was decided to release Kalengo.

In addition, eight home-based players have been dropped after Zambia’s 1-0 friendly loss on Saturday away to Zimbabwe in Harare.

Midfielder Kelvin Mubanga, defender’s Lawrence Chungu and Billy Mutale including striker Patson Daka have failed to make the cut.

The Power Dynamos quartet were dropped together with Jack Chirwa of Green Buffaloes, Nkwazi striker Justin Shonga, Zanaco midfielder Richard Kasonde and Nkana defender Donashano Malama.

Ronald Kampamba, who received a late call-up, has made the cut.
