Skipper Chris Katongo will lead the Chipolopolo squad which has been complimented by the legion of TP Mazembe stars, including striker Given Singuluma who makes the team for the friendly match against Tanzania.

Singuluma, the leading scorer at the inaugural CHAN Championship in 2009 and a top striker with Mazembe, returns to the team after nearly a year out of the squad.
