Local players have camped in Lusaka as Chipolopolo start preparations for the upcoming FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign.

Interim Chipolopolo coach Chambeshi earlier this week named a provisional 30-member home-based team.

The team trained at Lusaka’s Nkoloma Stadium on Friday.

The squad on Saturday morning played a friendly match against Super Division side Red Arrows which it won by 4-1.

Zambia will face Mauritania on September 1 away in Nouchakott when the World Cup qualifier starts.

Chipolopolo will later face Tunisia and Equatorial Guinea in Group B.
