Angola name initial Afcon squad



Angola have called up 23 locally-based players and one Brazilian-based striker for the first stage of their Africa Cup of Nations preparations, which begin in Lubango next week.

Palancas Negras share the same group with hosts South Africa and play Bafana in their second game in Group A in Durban on January 23.

Their initial squad, named by their coach Gustavo Ferrin, includes five players who were in the squad for the 2012 finals in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon plus sees a return for veteran goalkeeper Lama.

Champions Recreativo Libolo surprisingly supply only a single player to the squad in goalkeeper Landu.

This is despite having last month won a second successive GiraBola title.

Also in the squad is Geraldo from Brazilian second division side Parana, who has come to the end of his club season.

The camp is being held at altitude to replicate conditions Angola will face against Morocco at Soccer City in Johannesburg on January 19.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Lamas (Petro Atletico), Landu (Recreativo Libolo), Neblu (Primeiro Agosto)

Defenders: Amaro, Bastos (Primeiro Agosto), Dani Massunguna (Primeiro Agosto), Fabricio (InterClube), Mateus (Petro Atletico), Lunguinha (Kabuscorp), Mingo Bille, Paizo (Primeiro Agosto), Pirolito (InterClube), Vado (Recreativo Caala)

Midfielders: Ary (Primeiro Agosto), Ito (Progresso Sambizanga), Kibeixa (Kabuscorp), Mabina (Petro Atletico), Manucho (Primeiro Agosto), Manuel (AS Aviacao), Miguel (Petro Atletico), Paty (InterClube)

Forwards: Geraldo (Parana, Brazil), Vado (Petro Atletico), Yano (Progresso Sambizanga).
