Copper Queens coach Bruce Mwape has summoned 26 players to camp ,including three European-based stars, ahead of the two-legged fourth round Tokyo 2020 Olympic qualifiers against Kenya.

Mwape has called the BIIK Kazyghurt duo of Misozi Zulu and Rachael Kundananji, and Spanish-based Barbara Banda, who is on the books of EDF Logrono.

The team will regroup on Monday, October 28 and start preparations for the November 8 away tie, and the home tie that takes place three days later.
