Chambeshi names Chipolopolo final squad for World Cup qualifiers


Zambia national team coach Beston Chambeshi has named his final 22 member squad for next month’s back-to-back Qatar World Cup qualifiers against Mauritania and Tunisia.

Chambeshi has included England-based duo of Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka who are expected to link up with their teammates on Tuesday.

Denmark-based Lubambo Musonda has also made the cut and will join his teammates on Monday.

Sweden-based forward Edward Chilufya makes a return to the Chipolopolo Boys set up for the first time since October 2020 during the friendly match against Kenya.

Evans Kangwa and Augustine Mulenga are out of the two matches due to injuries.

South Africa-based goalkeeper Cyril Chibwe has also made the cut but there is no space for Kennedy Mweene, Emmanuel Banda, Klings Kangwa, and Lameck Banda.

Fashion Sakala who just returned to fitness has also been left out of the squad.

Zambia will be away to Mauritania on September 3 before hosting Tunisia four days later in Ndola at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Group B matches.
