Zambia Women National Team coach Bruce Mwape has summoned a 30-member provisional local squad as part of preparations for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifier against Cameroon in March.
Mwape has roped in some stand-out players from under-20 squad and retained some of his star performers in the runner-up to the final qualifying round of the Tokyo 2020 Olympic race.
Foreign based players will join the preparations in the final stages owing to club commitments. The Copper Queens will enter camp on Wednesday as they commence their 2020 calendar that also has Africa Women Championship and Cosafa tournaments on the radar.
Zambia will be away to Cameroon on March 5 before hosting the indomitable lionesses five days later in Lusaka.
