Midfielder Rally Bwalya, Wingback Rodrick Kabwe and goalkeeper Toaster Nsabata are the first foreign based players to join the Chipolopolo camp in Ndola.
The trio touched down at 18:10 hours at Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport and immediately headed to the team camp at the new look Mukuba Hotel.
Chipolopolo coach Avram Grant is expected to have more foreign based players troop in later today ahead of the two important matches.
Grant will hope to have all his players in good time ahead of Thursday’s Group H Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Lesotho.
Zambia plays Lesotho on Thursday at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium at 18:00 hours before trekking to South Africa for the return leg billed for Dobsonville Stadium in Johannesburg.
Tickets for Thursday’s match are being sold across Shoprite outlets via Computicket.
Wonder who will be tasked with converting penalties?
For me the break -out star is Klings Kangwa.
