Patrice Beaumelle has named 16 foreign-based players to face Uganda Cranes in a friendly on March 5 in Ndola at 18h00 CAT.
The 16 are in addition to 26 home-based players who will go into camp on February 23 in Lusaka.
However, the team does not include Orlando Pirates striker Collins Mbesuma who has seen no action this year at the PSL club and the club-less striker Fwayo Tembo who stormed out of Romanian side FC Astra late last year following a bust-up with the club owner.
Injured striker Jacob Mulenga of FC Utrecht in Holland and captain Christopher Katongo who is currently club-less after leaving Chinese side Henan Jianye following the expiry of his contract last October have been named to the team.
The foreign-based players are expected to start arriving in camp on March 2 in Ndola.
