The domestic-based Zambia team will hold a three-day training camp next week in Lusaka.

Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda has summoned 27 players for the camp that commences on Sunday and ends on Wednesday.

The team will enter camp to prepare for Zambia’s 2018 CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) first round qualifiers against Swaziland this July.

CHAN is a second tier AFCON tournament exclusively for home-based players.

The team has four debut call-ups namely Nkana goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga, Green Eagles striker Green Lwitika and the Lumwana Radiants midfielder duo of Hillary Bwalya and Eddie Sinyangwe.

Team manager Chris Chibuye says the Zesco United players have been excused from the get-together due to their 2017 CAF Confederation Cup obligations against Enugu Rangers of Nigeria away on April 8 and at home in Ndola on April 15.
