Nyirenda Calls 30 For Chipolopolo Camp

Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has summoned 30 players for a local camp that commences on Sunday.

Nyirenda has handed call-ups to Kitwe United’s Emmanuel Chabula and New Monze Swallows striker Peter Nyirenda keeping faith to his philosophy of an open door policy.

The camp will be part of the long term preparations for next month’s Cosafa Castle Cup Senior Challenge that will be held in South Africa.

Zambia will play Namibia in the quarter finals of the Cosafa Castle Cup that will be played from May 27 to June 10 in Limpopo Province of South Africa.

The Chipolopolo boys were runners up at last year’s Cosafa Castle Cup with the local camps preceding the tournament having brought to the fore hitherto unheralded names like Justin Shonga, Brian Mwila, Augustine Mulenga and Ernest Mbewe.

Nyirenda also has one eye on Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers that resume in September when Zambia plays Namibia.

    What a useless coach with a blind selection which will finish the good histry for chipolopolo.
    #You are gone Wada check this out#

  14. Zach

    This how a camp is started, the stars usually come later due to there club’s assignments. The goal keeper (Allan) is best👍

    I like what Wada wada has done this time hope he is not going to change his mind he is not looking on faces but the type of playing from small small clubs wada continue with the small spirit God bless you amen

  25. Zach

    I am not comfortable with the defenders. Big George shouldn’t be even on the selection mind. If no changes will take place on defenders, then it’s an experimental section of our team

  26. cmc

    kapumbu, mulenga y are they not included

  27. Matukuto Mumbi

    Mr coach we need a winning team not what you have made

  35. Lottie Simataa from Katima Mulilo , Namibia

  36. real bus

  42. david nsabata kangwa

    were is toaster! allan chibwe is a amateur keeper i see toaster wil be on called in september no plesure coach wanga

  43. Easy B

    Don’t just comment,you should watch the Zambian league.Wada has selected the good players that do better in Zambia league apart from a few player like Justin Zulu, larry bwalya who likes playing position football.Football is one torch and pass not someone dribbles and end up with poor pass.Wada should also includes Tosta musabata “Zanaco” kambole,swilimba,daka,chingandu ”Zesco” Billy mutale “power dynamos”and National assembly star George chiloba.

  44. Mr. Masiye

    What a good selection. let’s suport it and the coach.

  45. Chanda kasonde

    Where is chisamba lungu, fwayo tembo and fackson kapumbu? Coz They are also local players

  46. Avinashi

    Please just include chisamba lungu other wise this is the nation up not northern province team nice balancing coach keep it up kelp giving opportunities to each player until you find the best and some will benefit like shonga and Augustine mulenga

  47. john mwelwa

    That’s only player we have in Zambia ,they is no were to go with that team pliz ba wada poseniko amano otherwise mwalawa twalusa sana….

  53. Real man

    Pick a team that will lift the cup not the one that will bring a cup of sorrow to Zambia ñooo

  54. David Mwansa

    The squared looks promising despite some missing e.g. Kapumbu and Kambole.
