Lwandamina has named nine foreign based players with Green Buffaloes duo Adrian Chama and Stephen Kabamba as the only locally based players.

The Chipolopolo coach has gone with an attacking line up which will see Chris Katongo playing central as the no.8 with Kalaba and Lubambo Musonda wide while Collins Mbesua will start in the hole with Winstone Kalengo leading the attack.

Davies Nkausu has peeped 2015 CAF Champions league winner Kabaso Chongo to a spot in the starting XI.
