Nyirenda announces provisional squad for Cameroon

Zambia national football team acting head coach Wedson Nyirenda has announced a provisional squad of 23 players from the MTN FAZ Super League for a residential training camp to prepare for the 2018 Fifa World Cup Russia Group B qualifier with Cameroon.

Zambia is scheduled to play Cameroon on November 12.
