CHIPOLOPOLO stand-in coach Aggrey Chiyangi has summoned 25 players to a local camp ahead of the second round, first leg African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifier against Botswana in Francistown. Team manager Desmond M’ngawa said the team would be in camp from tomorrow to next Wednesday with assistant coach Mumamba Numba drilling the squad as Chiyangi is away on club duty in Rwanda. Chiyangi has named the bulk of his 2019 Cosafa Cup winning squad for the camp.
