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.
