Zambia have named a strong 33-man provisional squad for next month’s 2018 World Cup qualifier against Nigeria with overseas stars Rainford Kalaba, Kennedy Mweene and Stoppila Sunzu all included.
The other foreign-based call-ups are Collins Mbesuma (Highlands Park/South Africa), Chisamba Lungu (Ural/Russia), Lewis Macha (Kaizer Chiefs/South Africa), as well as Nathan Sinkala, Kabaso Chongo (TP Mazembe/DRC) and Kalengo Winstone (AC Leopards/DRC),
The bulk of the squad is drawn from the domestic league with seven players from CAF Champions League semi-finalists Zesco United. The squad was picked by assistant coach Wedson Nyirenda.
