Wedson Nyirenda has named his final 23-member Zambia team that will battle Nigeria on October 7 in the two sides penultimate 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier away in Uyo.
Two regular veterans continue to be overlooked by Nyirenda in particular the TP Mazembe duo of Rainford Kalaba and Nathan Sinkala who have yet again both been snubbed.
The duo was earlier also overlooked for the September 2 and 5 Group B dates against Algeria.
Overall, Nyirenda has kept faith in the same players who served him in well in the 3-1 home and 1-0 away Group B victories over Algeria last month.
Midfielder Edward Chilfuya who was dropped for the Algeria engagements due to an administrative problem is back in the team.
The 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup quarterfinalist and 2017 U20 AFCON winner is set for his first senior cap against Algeria.
Meanwhile, Zambia leaves for Ghana this Sunday to hold a four-day transit training camp on their way to Nigeria.
All 11 foreign-based players will link up with their 12 home-based compatriots in Accra on Sunday and Monday.
Zambia is 2nd in Group B and three points behind Nigeria on 7 and 10 points from four games played.
Third placed Cameroon and bottom of the log Algeria are out of the race on 3 and 1 point respectively.
