Zambia Under-20 coach Beston Chambeshi is hoping that his boys will maintain their superb display when they face hosts South Africa in the final of the Cosafa Youth Championship at Moruleng Stadium in Rustenburg on Friday.
Zambia are unbeaten going into the 17h30 kick-off final.
The Junior Chipolopolo thumped Zimbabwe 5-1, Malawi 3-0 and Mozambique 2-0 before overcoming DR Congo 2-1 in Wednesday semifinal at Moruleng Stadium.
Chambeshi acknowledged that negotiating passed tournament guests Congo was not easy.
“Good game, nice result and I am happy with the way the boys played. I am happy with the endurance and the way the boys are running,” he said.
“I hope we maintain the same spirit in the final,” Chambeshi said.
South Africa booked a date against Zambia after thumping Angola 5-0 in Wednesday’s second semifinal match.
“I can promise we will give you a good result if my team remain intact,” Chambeshi said.
Zambia are searching for their 11th Cosafa Under-20 title as they play in Friday’s final.
The team last won the competition in 2011 in Botswana.
