Sports Zambia U20 kickoff 2016 Cosafa Youth Cup campaign

“I think the boys are ready for the game. We are looking forward to getting maximum points in the first game,” Chambeshi said.

  1. Did you do any preparatory matches to assess them? Who did you play with to see how ready they are! This is what fools Zambian football. You say you are ready when there was no friendlies, serious friendlies for that and you expect to do miracles. I am not sure how our coaches and administrators prepare their boys for games. Administrators, know that you can not prepare for a big tournament without proper friendlies! Be serious!

  2. Please ensure all players are of age, & no pensioners are included, as you will be exposed & disqualified.
    You are not dealing with Chulu, & Isaac’s E.C.Z here.
