ZAMBIA Friday evening begins her Qatar 2022 world cup campaign against Mauritania in match day one of the qualifiers.

Coach Beston Chambeshi has assembled a familiar squad that comprises mainly the class of 2017 AfCON Under 20 champions.

It remains to be seen who gets the nod in goal with Zanaco stopper Lameck Siame, Young Green Eagles stopper Gregory Sanjase and South African based Mwenya Chibwe all looked good in training.

In defence, Quicksilver may go with Roderick Kabwe on the left, TP Mazembe defence Kingpin Thandi Mwape and Warriors Defender Dominic Chanda partnering in central defence with Simon Silwimba as right back.

Midfield enforcer Benson Sakala, Mercurial Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu and tricky Kelvin Muba Kampamba (Combatant Boyd Musonda) may get the nod with Spencer Sautu expected to start from the bench.
A front three of Patson Daka, Edward Chilufya and Lubambo Musonda is on the horizon.

The match kicks off at 18hrs Zambian time and will be Live on national broadcaster ZNBC.
