Chipolopolo to regroup in Lusaka this week 

The Chipolopolo Boys will regroup in Lusaka this week as part of their  preparations for the back-to-back FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Morocco and Tanzania.

The 2012 AFCON winners will have both a local and international camp ahead of the two important matches. 

Chipolopolo Boys head coach Avram Grant last week announced a 27 member provisional squad. 

Saudi Arabia based Fashion Sakala Jnr is the major omission with Tanzania based midfielder Clatous Chota Chama also not named in the team as he is coming off an injury. 

Italy based Lameck Banda who is on the books of Lecce will miss out due to injury after undergoing surgery.  

The 27-member squad will be further trimmed to reduce the number to 23. The team is expected to have an international camp preceding the monumental fixtures.

Zambia lies second on the log with the same points with log leaders Morocco who have a healthier goal difference while Niger is third with the same tally.

Zambia will face Morocco in Agadir on June 7 before facing Tanzania in Ndola five days later.
