Zanaco midfielder Boyd Musonda has received his debut Chipolopolo call-up.

The ex-Zambia Under-20 star and 2017 U20 AFCON winner is among 25 domestic-based players who entered camp in Lusaka on Monday for local trials ahead of Chipolopolo’s2019 AFCON Group K qualifier against Mozambique away in Maputo on November 18.

Musonda has been reunited in the senior setup with two of his former Under-20 team mates who are Zesco United defenders Solomon Sakala and Shemmy Mayembe.
