U-23 face Botswana in Rio Olympics quest

Sports U-23 face Botswana in Rio Olympics quest

Zambia on Friday evening begins the campaign for a place at the 2015 CAF Under-23 Cup tournament with a second round match against Botwana away in Gabon.

The CAF Under-23 Cup tournament to be held in Senegal will serve as the qualifiers for the Rio 2016 Olympic Fooball competition.

Zambia and Botswana on Friday evening clash in the first leg tie of the second round at Lobatse Sports Complex prior to the 29th May return match in Lusaka.

Fighton Simukonda’s Under-23 squad trots into Lobatse wounded after their recent elimination from the All Africa Games qualifiers at the hands of Nigeria.

Zambia were on bye from the first round where Botswana saw off Kenya to advance.

Left winger Kelvin Mubanga says Zambia’s prime target is to qualify for Olympic Games.

“We have no option but to qualify for the Olympic Games,” Mubanga said.

Winner between Zambia and Botswana will advance to the final round in July to face Cote d’Ivoire.


  1. The trend of primitive, Zambian men, stripping vulnerable women naked in public is not right and it should be stopped!!
    Mobs of jobless, classless, stinking Zambian men target and attack vulnerable young beautiful women and rip away their clothes until they are naked…. their dirty idea to take their minds from poverty, I wonder?
    I’m asking ”primitive Zambian people to PLEASE be civilized… its none of YOUR business what someone is wearing.
    Shame on these lowlifes, when did anyone’s dressing became another person’s business?
    These savages are potential rapists who should rot in jail
    The last time i checked God created us naked and in African culture women wore bark-skin “G-String” and nothing on top… Chitenge’S AND SALAULA WERE BROUGHT BY MUZUNGU’S
    Shame on you Zambians
