The nine players propelled the Zambian team that qualified for Senegal 2015 Africa Youth Championship and are part of the 27 man squad Coach Honor Janza has called to go into camp this Sunday to start preparations against Niger.
Janza kept his cards close to his chest on speculations that the latest move suggested that some players who featured in a goalless draw encounter against Mozambique and in defeat against Cape Verde will face a chop.
“I can’t talk about chopping some players now but both senior and junior players need to prove themselves,” he said.
The Chipolopolo will face Niger which is anchoring the Group F in an away fixture to be played in Niamey on the 11th October and four days later the two sides will again lock horns in Lusaka in a return leg.
Meanwhile, Janza is reportedly considering recalling striker James Chamanga currently plying his trade at Chinese Super League side Liaoning Whowin and other players who were not part of the squad during the last two games.
Chamanga netted a brace during his team’s 3-0 victory over Shanghhai Shenxin in a match that was played on Sunday.
