The Chipolopolo boys have left for Douala, Cameroon for an international camp ahead of the back-to-back clashes with Equatorial Guinea in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
Fourteen local players and the technical bench have headed to Cameroon aboard Ethiopian Airlines with foreign based players expected to join camp in Doula.
The weeklong international camp has been organized to ensure that the team acclimatizes with the weather that is similar to the conditions in Equatorial Guinea.
Zambia will be away to Equatorial Guinea on October 7 before hosting the Nzalang Nacional three days later at National Heroes Stadium.
Zambia lies second in Group B with three points while Tunisia tops the pool with six points.
Equatorial is third and sits on the same points with Zambia with an inferior goal difference with Mauritania at the bottom with zero points.
FAZ vice president Justin Mumba is leading the delegation to Cameroon.
Departure is at 15:15 hours aboard Ethiopian Airlines.
