Only active players will be considered for Chipolopolo

Filed under: Sports | understands that only active players will be considered for national team call ups.

This is a new policy coach Patrice Beaumulle will be into place, a ZamFoot Crew source at Football House said.

In the past, players were considered for national team duty despite being inactive at their respective clubs but now Patrice wants to stamp his authority.

“Take the example of Fwayo for instance, the boy has been in the country since about September but he continued to enjoy call ups to the national team. Against Brazil you could see that fitness wise he wasn’t up there with the rest of his colleagues.

“But when Patrice talked to the FAZ hierarchy over this issue, they gave him a thumbs up and hence he was left out of the CECAFA squad.

Fwayo has been spotted featuring in off-season tournaments and no one knows what next for the talented winger cum midfielder.

At the start of the Romanian season, the ‘Galactico’ went AWOL from Romanian side Astra where he was a key player.

He left Swiss side Basel and Etoile du Sahel of Tunisia in similar circumstances.
