Midfielders: Ian Bakala, Felix Katongo (Premiero de Agosto), William Njobvu (Lusaka Dynamos), Clifford Mulenga (Pretoria University), Andrew Sinkala (Paderborn 07, Germany), Rainford Kalaba (Zesco United) and Isaac Chansa (Helsingborg IF, Sweden).

Strikers: Collins Mbesuma (Bursaspor, Turkey), Adubelo Phiri (Desportivo Premeiro Agosto), Jacob Mulenga (Strausbourg Racing, France), James Chamanga (Moroka Swallows), Emmaunel Mayuka (Kabwe Warriors) and Christopher Katongo (Brondby IF, Denmark).

Good choice in Chamanga. Not so sure about Felix Katongo but we know what his striker brother can do. I wish our fellow Cosafa team, Chipolopolo, all of the best in Ghana. I think this may be one of their best showings in htis tourney. Cheers comrades !!
