Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has summoned 27 players for a local camp as he continues to build for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers.

Nyirenda has handed debut call ups to a host of players among them Nkana goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga, Lumwana Radiants midfielders Eddie Sinyangwe and Hilary Bwalya.

The first local camp culminated into an international friendly against Zimbabwe during the FIFA International window in March that ended 0-all.

Nyirenda has his sights on assembling a strong team that will carry the Zambian flag during the qualifiers with a fixture against Swaziland in July in the knockout stages of the CHAN qualifiers.

Team manager Chris Chibuye, released the names to saying the team will enter into residential camp on Sunday and will break up on Wednesday.

Chibuye said the local camps would help Nyirenda having a look at the local players that could be fitted in the Chipolopolo set up.

He said Zesco United players had been excused as they would be out on continental duty in Nigeria and only return in the country mid next week.

“We will be in camp starting from Sunday and the coach has added more players that he wants to look at,” Chibuye said.
