Zambia coach Patrice Beaumelle has demanded quality from his home-based players during the monthly domestic national team training camp.

Beaumelle wrapped up his third home-based players monthly training camp in Lusaka on Wednesday since kicking off the programme in January in which Nkana and Zesco players were exempt due to the CAF club obligations.

“As you know my target for local camp is to organize every month three days with the local players,” Beaumelle said.

“This is the only time we can give them a chance to show their football.

“We have some guys who were on the bench with Uganda or even with some experience.”

One of the local players currently in camp and who made an impact in the March 5 friendly against Uganda is Nkana striker Evans Kangwa.

Kangwa scored a brace in that game to lead Zambia to a 2-1 win over the Uganda Cranes at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The striker is part of the 23-member team in camp because he is ineligible to play for Nkana in Africa after he joined the side after the January 15 CAF registration deadline.
