Aggrey Chiyangi has unveiled his provisional 24-member home-based Zambia team that goes into pre-2019 COSAFA Cup camp in Lusaka this Sunday.

The three-day camp in Lusaka will include two debut call-ups for the Forest Rangers duo of midfielder Webster Muzaza and the clubs’ top scorer on eight goals, striker Austin Muwowo.

Chiyangi has also handed recalls to striker’s Chitiya Mususu of Zanaco who returns after a two year absence while Moses Phiri from Buildcon is back in the fold for the first time since 2015.

But there is no place for Mususu’s club mate Rodgers Kola who currently leads the charts on 9 goals.

South Africa will host the COSAFA Cup in Durban from May 25 to June 8.

Zambia will kick off their COSAFA Cup campaign on June 2 after enjoying a preliminary group stage bye.

Winner will in the June 5 semifinals play the victor between defending champions Zimbabwe and their prospective opponent from Group A.

  1. Wait a minute, did I miss out something here? Why is there no mention of the big guns like Justin Shonga, Augustine Mulenga, Mwape Musonda, etc? We’ve not qualified for AFCON2019 and this is the only opportunity for us to reclaim some of our long lost glory. Let’s swallow our pride and avoid what happened in Polokwane last year Zimbabwe featured some foreign based player in that Final
