Zambia’s caretaker coach Aggrey Chiyangi has named nine foreign based players for next week’s friendly match against South Africa in Lusaka.
But all the foreign based players come from Africa with none of Zambia’s European-based players called up for the September 7 clash at the National Heroes Stadium.
Coach Chiyangi wants to use the match mainly as a training game for locally-based players as Zambia will try later this month to qualify for the African Nations Championship.
Skipper Kabaso Chongo of TP Mazembe leads the foreign legion that includes six players based in South Africa.
Goalkeepers: Lawrence Mulenga (Power Dynamos), Sebastian Mwange (Green Eagles), Nkole Ngandu (National Assembly)

Midfielders: Rally Bwalya (Power Dynamos), Clatous Chama (Simba Sports, Tanzania), Kelvin Kampamba (Nkana), Donashano Malama (Black Leopards, South Africa), Ernest Mbewe (Zanaco), Augustine Mulenga (Orlando Pirates, South Africa), Bruce Musakanya (Red Arrows), Webster Muzaza (Forest Rangers), Salulani Phiri (Polokwane City, South Africa), Benson Sakala (Power Dynamos)
