FASHION RETURNS as coach unveils squad to face NigeriaBy Diggers Reporter on 29 Sep 2017
Zambia Under-20 midfielder Edward Chilufya is finally set for his senior debut after missing last month’s dates against Algeria due to administrative reasons following his move to Swedish club Djurgårdens.
And Under-20 striker Fashion Sakala is back from suspension to face Nigeria after picking a red card against Algeria earlier this month.
Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has also maintained brace hero Brian Mwila and another Under-20 star striker Patson Daka in his final 23-member squad.
Meanwhile, Nyirenda has snubbed captain and midfielder Rainford Kalaba for a second successive date, while insisting that the TP Mazembe playmaker is still part of his plans.
Kalaba was ignored for the September 5 Group B away date against Algeria after missing the September 2 first leg match against The North Africans due to a one-match suspension.
Also not picked for the trip to Nigeria is Kalaba’s club mate and fellow midfielder Nathan Sinkala who was also overlooked for September’s Group B doubleheader.
“They are Zambian players and the door has always been open for every other player,” Nyirenda said.
“But for this encounter, we have chosen these 23 that we feel we will use. They will be called in the future.”
Zambia head in to their must-win clash in 2nd in Group B on 7 points, three points behind Nigeria.
Third placed Cameroon and bottom of the log Algeria are out of the race on 3 and 1 point respectively.
Meanwhile, Zambia departs for Ghana this Sunday where they will set up a four-day training camp while in transit to Nigeria.
All the 11 foreign based call-ups will link-up with their 12 domestic counterparts in Accra starting on Sunday.
