He said the panel would come up with a shortlist of eligible candidates whose names will be forwarded to be discussed between FUFA and government.
“The FUFA Executive Committee will choose the best candidate who will be announced for the Cranes national team coach by November 15, 2017.”
Edgar noted that they had chosen Bwalya to head the committee because of his vast experience in African football both as a player and administrator.
