Late Chipolopolo call up for Munthali

Nkana defender Christopher Munthali has received a late call up to the provisional squad of the Zambia National Football Team.

Acting head coach Wedson Nyirenda confirmed to fazfootball.com that Munthali had been recalled following a review of his performance for Nkana in the Barclays Cup semi-final against Zanaco on Saturday.

“Munthali will join us once we have finalised the formalities of sending a release letter to his club,” said Nyirenda.

The defender has not been invited to the national team since January when he was part of the African Nations Championship (CHAN) squad in Rwanda.

He will join 23 other players in Lusaka in preparing for next month’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier with Cameroon.
