Angola coach names squad for camp
Angola coach Gustavo Ferrin has announced a mostly locally-based squad of players to begin camping ahead of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations.
The Angolans will go to into camp in Lubango from December 4-23, though many of the players will have medical assessments starting next week.
The only player from outside Angola selected at this stage is Gerard from the Paraná Clube of Brazil.
