Singuluma in, but Sinkala out for Zambia

Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda has called up striker Given Singuluma after a two year absence, but has dropped his club team-mate, Nathan Sinkala.

Nyirenda was announcing the squad which will do duty against Mozambique in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) Group K qualifier at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on June 10.

Singuluma, based at DR Congo club TP Mazembe, last played for Chipolopolo in a 2017 AFCON qualifier in June 2015.

Guinea Bissau and Namibia are the other two countries in Zambia’s AFCON qualifying group.
