Musonda, Kapumbu missing as Grant names 25-man Chipolopolo squad for World Cup qualifier (see list)


Chipolopolo coach, Avram Grant, has named a 25-member squad ahead of the back-to-back Group E 2026 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Congo Brazzaville and Niger respectively.

According to FAZ website, Grant has retained the core of the squad that helped the team qualify for the 2023 Ivory Coast Africa Cup of Nations.

However, Grant would be without the injured duo of Scotland based Frankie Musonda and Kelvin Kapumbu while Tandi Mwape has yet to find a club since his contract with TP Mazembe ran out.

The team is a mix of local and foreign based players that will enter camp in Ndola on November 13 when the FIFA window opens.

Zambia host Congo Brazaaville at the Levy Mwanwasa Stadium on November 17 before travelling to Marrakech for a match against Niger which will be held four days later.
