Janza summons 9 U-20 players


NATIONAL team coach Honour Janza has summoned nine under-20 players to start preparations for the decisive 2015 Morocco Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Niger in Niamey.
In total, Janza has called 27 players to regroup in Lusaka on Sunday.
Janza has also roped in Roan United defender Given Sinyangwe and striker Humphrey Maseneko from Konkola Blades.
Maseneko was on target when Blades beat Zanaco 1-0 in the Barclays Cup quarter-final encounter last Sunday at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
The Chipolopolo will be away to Niger on October 11 and four days later host the West Africans.
The under-20 players are goalkeeper Mangani Banda, defenders Kapota Kayawe, Boyd Mkandawire, Alex Mwamba and Peter Mulenga.
Others are midfielders Larry Bwalya and Spencer Sautu and strikers Patrick Ngoma and Saith Sakala.
Football Association of Zambia communications manager Nkweto Tembwe, who released the list of players yesterday, said Janza wants to get down to work as early as possible.
And Janza said only deserving players will be summoned for the match against Niger.
He said in an interview from Ndola yesterday that the technical bench is leaving nothing to chance.
“I can’t talk about chopping some players now but both senior and junior players need to prove themselves,” he said.
Janza is also monitoring China-based striker James Chamanga and other players that were not called for the Mozambique and Cape Verde matches.
The Chipolopolo battled to a goalless draw with Mozambique and lost 1-2 to Cape Verde.
The team:
Goalkeepers: Danny Munyao, Joshua Titima, Mangani Banda
Defenders: Kapota Kayawe, Nyambe Mulenga, Boyd Mkandawire, Peter Mulenga, Alex Mwamba, Christopher Munthali, Adrian Chama, Given Sinyangwe
