Charly Musonda gets Chipolopolo summon, Chisamba looped in
Belgian midfielder Charly Musonda Jr. has received a call-up to the Chipolopolo national team while Russia based midfielder Chisamba Lungu has also received a late call after being omitted on the initial list.
Musonda who is on the books of English side Chelsea but is on loan in Spain has been in scintillating form for his La liga club Real Betis. The 19 year old is son to Zambian soccer legend Charles Musonda but holds Belgian nationality despite not having been capped yet at senior level by Belgium.
Fazfootball reports that Chipopolo coach George Lwandamina says he is fully aware of the allure for Charley to feature for Belgium. However the coach is very hopeful that the part of his heritage with both parents being Zambian will sway it for the Chipolopolo team.
On Chisamba, the coach apologized saying the player-maker was omitted by mistake but was part of his team to play Congo Brazaville in back to back games this month.
