Sports Simukonda toasts CAF U-23 Cup qualification

Coach Fighton Simukonda has saluted the Zambia Under-23 for qualifying to the 2015 CAF Under-23 Cup to be held in Senegal.

Zambia beat Cote d’Ivoire on post-match penalties to make their debut qualification to the CAF Under-23 Cup.

Fighton Simukonda’s side beat Cote d’Ivoire 4-3 on post-match penalties after a 0-0 aggregate score-line over 1800 minutes of action.

“Credit should go to players they have done the country proud. The game was tough and you know everyone was expecting a win,” Simukonda said.

On qualifying via post-match penalties, Simukonda said:” I win is a win, what is important is that we have qualified.”

Zambia now head to Senegal at the end of the year for the tournament that will be held from November 28 to December 12 that will see the top three sides there qualifying to the 2016 Rio Olympics.

“I think the team is capable of going to Brazil. I do not doubt,” Simukonda said.
