Janza names AFCON Squad, recalls Kondwani but no Kola
Chipolopolo Boys coach Honour Janza has named a 27-man provisional squad.
Janza has maintained a youthful side and included a number of under-20 while there are no places for the long term saving Chipolopolo players.
Indian based midfielder cum defender Kondwani Mtonga has been recalled as expected while the form Israeli based Rodger Kola has been left out.
From the local league, with Nyambe Mulenga ruled out, Janza has opted for Bronson Chama and Chris Munthali as cover.
Under-20 midfielder Spencer Sautu has been included ahead of Shadreck Malambo while red-hot Patrick ‘Dudey’ Ngoma has earned himself a place after the exploits of at the Cosafa Under-20.
But the talking point is the omission of Rodger Kola and Jacob Mulenga who have scored both 9 goals this season at their respective clubs while Mayuka is yet to score.
