According to FAM competitions manager Gomezgani Zakazaka, the select side technical panel was chosen by FAM technical director John Kaputa while the players were selected by the panel itself.
“According to the arrangement, the team will be training at Silver Stadium,” said Zakazaka.
The squad is as follows: Goalkeepers: Amadu Ali and Duncan Mkandawire; Defenders: Pempho Kamsichili, Pilirani Makupe, Diouf Simaoni, Emmanuel Zoya, Wyson Nkhana, and Patience Kalumo; Midfielders: Willard Dickson, Joseph Kachule, Mude Jeffrey, Innocent Tanganyika, Gerald Nkungula, Thoko Harrison and Gift Mbwana; Strikers: Zinjani Yona, Harvey Nkacha, and Raphael Phiri.
