Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroek has summoned 23 players to a three-day training camp in Lusaka.
During a media briefing at Football House, Vandenbroek said that his selection was based on his having watched local matches since taking up his Chipolopolo appointment on July 10.
Vandenbroek said that he had watched 13 Super League teams stressing that he would watch all the teams in the coming days.
“It is not a definitive list, because I will have more than one camp. I will try to make a pool of 30 to 35 players. From there we will go to 23,” he said.
The Belgian said the camp was aimed at helping him know the players better and appreciate their strengths and weaknesses.
He said that more players would be called up in upcoming camps as he narrows the numbers to those required for Chipolopolo duty.
The coach said that he had excluded Zesco United players that had a continental engagement over the weekend.
The Chipolopolo have crucial Africa Cup of Nations engagements in September when they play Namibia and Guinea Bissau.
