Sports Chambeshi Names Chipolopolo Team For Equatorial Guinea Dates

Chipolopolo coach Beston Chambeshi maintained most of the players as he named his 24-man squad for next month’s back-back Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier matches against Equatorial Guinea.

New inclusions in the team that faced Tunisia and Mauritania earlier this month in the World Cup campaign are Arsenal Tula striker Evans Kangwa and midfielder Larry Bwalya of Simba SC in Tanzania.

Kangwa and Bwalya are among the nine foreign based players in the squad.

Forward Fashion Sakala of Rangers in Scotland is returning to the squad after missing the first two matches of the qualifying campaign.

Zambia is scheduled to face Equatorial Guinea away on day three of the campaign between 6-9 October before hosting the same team four days later.

  1. why Lameck Siame and Sanjase joined big clubs where they will not be first choice goalkeepers? This how boy Mangani Banda finished because he was warming bench all time.

  2. I appreciate the team very much. But the problem is that they are not playing with everything when they come to the national team. This is the main reason why people are calling for the inclusion of old experienced players as these boys are not putting in enough and yet they have the skills. Better old who will come not let Zambia down. Look it is shameful to lose home regardless of the status of the team you are playing with. Home is still home. It can be a number in Africa but when it comes to Zambia it must fall.

    Don’t say football has changes as there is no home advantage. NO. If so why don’t you, yourselves win when you play them away?

  3. Thank God we’ve dropped Boyd Musonda though we still need to fill the defensive midfielder position with someone combative, intelligent and blessed with good positional sense!! Suggestions?!

  4. This is not under 20 it’s a national team u were supposed to drop chepeshi, Solomon and chiluya use experience players not these are in locally
