Clatous Chama, Kabaso, Chibwe, and Sinkala named in Micho’s provisional squad
Zambia national team head Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has named his provisional squad for the back-to-back 2021 Cameroon (to be played in 2022) Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers against Algeria and Zimbabwe.
Micho has recalled defender Kabaso Chongo, midfielder Clatous Chota Chama and striker Brian Mwila for the two crucial encounters.
The Serbian Wolf has also recalled 2012 AFCON winner Nathan Sinkala and South African-based goalminder Cyril Mwenya Chibwe. Former Zanaco duo of Rodrick Kabwe and Salulani Phiri has also returned to the Chipolopolo Boys set up.
Redbull Salzburg duo of striker Patson Daka and midfield ace Enock Mwepu lead the lineup.
Zambia is bottom of Group H with just three points from four games and needs two wins to find their way back to the biggest football fiesta on the continent since 2015. Algeria tops the group on 10 points while Zimbabwe lies second with five.
Zambia will host Algeria on March 25 before trekking to Harare four days later for the back-to-back encounters in the Group H final qualifiers.
