Wigan Athletic U-18 starlet Mwiya Malumo and Shrewsbury Town winger Lifumpa Mwandwe arrived at 14:40 hours aboard Emirates Airlines and were received at the airport by FAZ officials.
The duo will be expected to process their paper work before proceeding to Kigali to join the team that is currently in Lilongwe, Malawi.
“This call means a lot to me, representing one’s country is the best thing one can do,” said Mwandwe.
“I did not expect the call but I am excited that I got this chance.”
And Malumo said that he was hoping to make good on his form at his club where he scored 25 goals in the 2017/18 season.
