The Zambia Under-20 national team coach Oswald Mutapa has summoned 51 players to camp as part of preparations for the 2020 Cosafa championship that will be used as part of the 2021 Total U20 Africa Cup of Nations.
Mutapa has also roped in Italy based Abel Kanyamuna who is on the books of Serie A TIM side Cagliari Calcio.
Kanyamuna joined Cagliari in 2018 playing for their under-17 side.
The team also comprises some of the players who starred at last year’s Cosafa victory on home soil.
Zambia are the reigning champions of the Cosafa under-20 tournament.
Top two teams at the tournament will qualify to the 2021 CAF under-20 Cup of Nations scheduled for Mauritania in July.
The 2020 Cosafa edition will run from December 3-13 in South Africa.
