Africa Soccer ZAMBIA : Chambeshi names provisional squad for the World Cup qualifiers

Zambia caretaker coach Beston Chambeshi has named a provisional 30-member squad of home-based players for camp training ahead of the forthcoming World Cup qualifiers in September.

Chambeshi, whose coaching panel comprises Technical Advisor Aljosa Asanovic, assistant coach Karol Prazencia and video assistant Stefan Carevic,  unveiled the squad on Wednesday at Football Association of Zambia (FAZ)’s Football House.

In a press briefing which Africa Top Sports monitored online, Chambeshi said he had confidence in his squad of youthful and experienced players.

The work has started now and that is why we have come up with this list of local players. We are happy with our selection because these are the players we think can take the team to higher levels,” the former under-20 mentor said.

Chambeshi justified the selection players such as Nkana goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga, saying “the young man has been working hard. He is in good form and he has been at the national level for sometime.”

The squad will train for four days in camp then regroup again for the actual preparations that will see the Chipolopolo camp outside the country.

Zambia face Mauritania away on September 1, then welcome Tunisia on September 6 in Group B qualifying matches for the World Cup.
