The Zambia Women National Team yesterday commenced preparations for the 2018 Africa Women Championship with 26 players summoned for camp.

Coach Beauty Mwamba named a blend of youth and experience in the fulcrum of the team from the 2018 COSAFA Castle Cup squad that emerged fourth in South Africa.

The team will be accommodated at Cool Breeze from October 14 to November 3 and only Buffaloes’ Anita Mulenga had not yet reported for camp as the letter to the command was not sent on time.

Ghana will host the Total Women’s Africa Cup of Nations scheduled for 17 November to 1 December.
