The Zambia Under-23 National Team is back in camp for another week of practice ahead of the June 5 Egypt 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round match against Congo Brazzaville.

Coach Beston Chambeshi has summoned 25 players to a local camp in Lusaka.

Chambeshi has kept the bulk of the 2017 Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations winning players in his current U23 squad.
Foreign based players will join the camp in the final stages owing to on-going club engagements.

Zambia hosts Congo Brazzaville on June 5 before heading to Pointe Noire on June 9 for the final leg.
Winner over two legs will qualify to the tournament that will be staged in November.

Top three teams at the AFCON will qualify to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Zambia was last at the Olympic Games in 1988.
