Sports Shepolopolo U-20 set to advance in FIFA World Cup race

Shepolopolo Under-20 are certain of advancing in the 2016 Papua New Guinea FIFA World Cup qualifiers when they host Tanzania at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka on Saturday.

Zambia have a 4-0 advantage over Tanzania as the two teams clash in the return match of the second qualifying round.

“The team is ready to face Tanzania this weekend. Our target is to get a win and will not allow Tanzania to cause an upset,” Zambia coach Oswald Mutapa said.

Ireen Lungu, Barbra Banda, Hazel Nali and Memory Phiri are some of the key players available for selection.

Tanzania on Friday afternoon held their final training at the match venue Nkoloma Stadium.

Meanwhile, FAZ has announced that there will not be gate charges as the under-20 women’s team tackles Tanzania at Nkoloma Stadium.

“Entry into Nkoloma Stadium is free for all,” FAZ said in a statement issued late on Friday.
