National Team coach Wedson Nyirenda has named a 28-member provisional squad for the November 11 Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Cameroon in Ndola.
South Africa based Baroka Football Club striker Lewis Macha makes a return to the squad with Sweden based Edward Chilufya also named after having missed out on October 7 clash against Nigeria.
The team enters into residential camp on November 5 in Ndola ahead of the final qualifying match.
Zambia stands second in Group B with seven points while Nigeria edged out the Chipolopolo 1-0 on October 7 to grab the ticket to Russia.
Nyirenda has kept the door open for the supremely talented U-17 star Lameck Banda as he builds on the growing pool of local players that will compete at the African Nations Championship (CHAN)
