Scotland based defender Frankie Musonda has arrived in Lusaka ahead of this weekend’s dead rubber clash against Comoros.
Comoros host Zambia in the final group match.
The Ayr United defender is the first European based player to join camp.
England based striker Patson Daka who saw a transfer day deadline deal fail to go through is on his way.
A host of local players are expected to join on Monday afternoon.
Meanwhile Chipolopolo coach Avram Grant named a 27-member provisional squad for the match.
Grant has kept faith in the bulk of the squad that helped the team qualify to the Ivory Coast 2023 Africa Cup of Nations (to be played in 2024).
COSAFA Cup winners Wisdom Moyela Libamba and Killian Kanguluma have been handed call ups.
The team will enter camp on September 4 in Lusaka before flying out to Comoros.
Zambia tops Group H with 12 points, two better than Ivory Coast who will be hosting Lesotho and have already qualified as hosts.
Comoros lies third with six points and will be playing for pride having already fallen out of the race for the AFCON.
