Chipolopolo 2By KALUMIANA KALUMIANA –
CHIPOLOPOLO yesterday morning trained behind closed doors in Kitwe after secretly deciding to camp at Moba Hotel.
The idea was aimed at avoiding disturbances and so that the team could concentrate on training.
Ronald Kampamba and Winston Kalengo have been recalled to the team after they were dropped from the initial 28-man squad for Group F qualifiers against Mozambique at home and Cape Verde away in Praia on September 6 and 10 respectively.
Chipolopolo held its first training session on Tuesday morning under lock and key behind the high walls of Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.
Droves of curious fans who were hoping to catch their stars in training after word spread that the team was camped in Kitwe were turned away at the main Arthur Davies gate by security guards.
A peep check inside the stadium found Zambia coach Honour Janza training with 28 players without defender Stopilla Sunzu of French Ligue 2 club Sochaux  and Southampton striker Emmanuel Mayuka.
The duo is the last professionals Janza was expecting to report to camp by press time.
Meanwhile, amongst the players in training yesterday was midfielder Nathan Sinkala who arrived on Monday night from his Swiss base at Grasshopper and he was also part of full practice.
Other professionals who took part in full training were Emmanuel Mbola, Christopher Katongo, his brother Felix, Collins Mbesuma, Joseph Musonda, Chisamba Lungu, Mukuka Mulenga, Jacob Mulenga, Jonas Sakuwaha, and Kabaso Chongo.
Five other players, where involved in light training under the watchful eye of team physiotherapist Gibson Chaloba.
The five were Rainford Kalaba, Fwayo Tembo, Given Singuluma, Kampamba and goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene.
Kampamba and Kalengo make up the 15 home-based players who included clubless striker Fwayo.
Chipolopolo will host Mozambique at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola in both sides opening Group F qualifying fixture.
