Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda and his final 22 member team are off to South Africa to begin their 2017 Cosafa Castle Cup journey.

Three U-20 stars have made the final 22 member squad in show of recognition for the junior team's fine run at the Africa and World cup.

Nkana starlets Moses Nyondo and Boston Muchindu are joined by Napsa Stars' Solomon Sakala on the list with Lusaka Dynamos' Conlyde Luchanga excluded from the highly competitive traveling party.

South based Salulani Phiri who plies his trade at Polokwane City is the only foreign based player named in the squad after Black Leopards squad Mwape Musonda was ruled out due to injury.

Team manager Chris Chibuye told Fazfootball.com that the team preparations had been adequate with the lads looking forward to the tournament.

Zambia plays Botswana on Saturday in the quarterfinal of the Cosafa Castle Cup.
