The Zambia Soccer team has moved to South Africa to set base as they wait for their quarter-final match against Botswana at the on-going Cosafa Castle Cup Senior Challenge.
Three Under-20 stars have made the final 22 member squad in show of recognition for the junior team’s fine run at the Africa and world cup.
Nkana starlets MOSES NYONDO and BOSTON MUCHINDU are joined by Napsa Stars’ SOLOMON SAKALA on the list with Lusaka Dynamos’ CONLYDE LUCHANGA excluded from the team.
South African based SALULANI PHIRI is the only foreign based player named in the squad after black leopards’ squad MWAPE MUSONDA was ruled out due to injury.
Meanwhile the Football Association of Zambia has postponed week 15 super league match between Green Buffaloes and Nkhwazi as the army side has contributed five players to the Cosafa Castle Cup Squad.
Buffaloes are missing skipper ADRIAN CHAMA, BRIAN MWILA, DIAMOND CHIKWEKWE, JACK CHIRWA and MIKE KATIBA.
