Evans Kangwa recalled, Kalaba and Mweene snubbed as Chiyangi names squad for back to back AFCON qualifiers
Russian based striker Evans Kangwa has returned to the national team set up after being named in Aggrey Chiyangi’s 21-member squad for back-to-back Cameroon 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Algeria and Zimbabwe.
Kangwa joins South Africa based trio of Justin Shonga, Mwape Musonda and Lazarus Kambole as the strikers named for the two crunchy encounters.
NO PLACE FOR MWEENE, LUBAMBO, AND KALABA
Chiyangi has recalled the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations winning duo of Nathan Sinkala and Stophila Sunzu who are on the books of TP Mazembe and FC Metz respectively. The duo missed out on the trip to West Africa for friendly matches against Benin and Niger.
There is however no place for the Copper Bullets most capped player Kennedy Mweene and former captain Rainford Kalaba. Poland based winger Lubambo Musonda has also not made the cut.
Chiyangi has to work without under-23 players that have been assigned to Beston Chambeshi’s team that will be taking part in the U23 AFCON tournament that kicks off on 8th November in Egypt.
The local players will regroup in Lusaka on Sunday with foreign-based players expected to join during the requisite FIFA window that runs from November 11-19.
Chipolopolo will face 2019 AFCON Champions, Algeria away in Algiers on 14th November before playing host to the Warriors of Zimbabwe five days later.
