THE Chipolopolo today regroup in Lusaka following stand-in coach Aggrey Chiyangi naming his final 20-member squad for next Friday’s African Nations Championship (CHAN) first leg against Botswana in Francistown.
Team manager Desmond M’ngawa released the names to Fazambia.com, saying once the team enters camp they will not break until the second leg is played in August in Lusaka.
Assistant coach Mumamba Numba has been drilling the squad for the last two weeks in the absence of Chiyangi who was away on club duty in Kigali.
Zambia will be away to Botswana on July 26 before hosting the Zebras on August 3 at the Heroes Stadium.
Winner over two legs will play either Angola or Eswatini in the final qualifying round for the Cameroon 2020 CHAN.
