CHIPOLOPOLO coach Honour Janza says Israel-based Zambian striker, Evans Kangwa is still in his plans despite overlooking him in the two upcoming 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.
Kangwa at the weekend came off the bench to score a brace in Hapoel Ra’anana’s 2-1 win away to Moadon Sport Ashalod.
The on-loan striker from Nkana together with Jacob Mulenga, who scored in Adana Demirspor’s 2-1 Turkish 1.lig away loss to Elazigspor, have been left out of the 26-member squad that regroups on Sunday.
But Janza said Kangwa was still part of his plans adding that he was monitoring his performance at the his club and would be called for future assignments.
“Evans is a good player and he is in our plans. It is just that we have to call a certain number of players at a time to the national team because of the high competition for positions,” Janza said in an interview.
Janza retaliated on the need for both foreign and locally based players that have not been summoned to camp not to lose hope but work hard to ensure they get a call up for the other matches.
“I am positive that we are qualifying to the AFCON and players like Evans may have a chance to play at the finals based on their performance they are showing at his club,” he said.
Kangwa, who is on one year loan from Nkana, was part of 2012 Chipolopolo winning squad but did not play a game. His last appearance in the Zambian jersey was in March when he scored a brace in 2-1 win over Uganda.
Zambia plays Mozambique away in a must win clash on November 15 before hosting Cape Verde four days at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
