In-form South African-based striker Musonda Mwape has been recalled for Chipolopolo duty by caretaker coach Aggrey Chiyangi.

The Black Leopards striker returns to the fold for the first time since 2017 and is currently front-runner in the 2018/2019 South Africa PSL Golden Boot race on 12 goals.

But there is no place for TP Mazembe midfielder Rainford Kalaba following his modest return under Sven Vandenbroeck in his five games in charge.

Vandenbroeck is currently suspended over a disciplinary case by FAZ as he prepares to depart the Chipolopolo job on March 31 when his contract expires.

There is also no place for Nathan Sinkala but the duos’ club mate and defender Kabaso Chongo is the only one of Mazembe trio in Chiyangi’s steam.

Meanwhile, the Orlando Pirates duo of Justin Shonga and Augustin Mulenga including Zesco United striker Lazarus Kambole headline the 20-member Zambia team.

Power Dynamos goalkeeper Lawrence Mulenga will be Kennedy Mweene’s understudy for the Namibia match.

GOALKEEPERS:Kennedy Mweene (Mamelodi Sundowns,South Africa), Lawrence Mulenga (Power Dynamos)

DEFENDERS: Simon Silwimba, Clement Mwape (both Zesco United), Gift Zulu (Nkana), Lawrence Chungu, Isaac Shamujompa (both Buildcon), Kabaso Chongo (TP Mazembe, DR Congo), Adrian Chama (Green Buffaloes)

  1. Why they are not going to play in an empty stadium against Namibia? How any normal self would like to watch such game?

  2. Well done ba Coach, I feel the team is well balanced and the selection of players is good. The fact that the coach could live out even his Green eagles pair means he selects players who are the best and are in his game plan. I hope the team will combine well considering the fact that they have not been playing together for too long. I still feel there is still room for the likes of Lubambo Musonda, Ziyo Tembo and other players with the under 23 National team preparing for the game against Malawi and these include Patson Daka, Mwepu, Fashion Sakala and many others. Though the game is a dead rubber victory is a must. Bear in mind FIFA rankings and just National Pride. Otherwise we wish the boys good luck

  5. Almost everyone here is in support of the player selection. When we loose by 3-0 don’t blame the coach. Mefyabupuba you keep on supporting…[email protected] is right we lack consistency, every new coach comes in with an imbalanced brain only to disfigure the team. Is that how you start a new team and yet you are the same *****s who buys DStv’s premium. This is simply another loss yet to be recorded
