Quicksilver promises fight for Cosafa U20 Cup title

Sports Quicksilver promises fight for Cosafa U20 Cup title

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.

  1. The reason they have been ‘thumping’ others is that they have cheated on their ages. A good number of them are above 20. South Africa is clever. These ‘boys’ will have an MRI test tomorrow, get disqualified and South Africa will automatically be declared winners of the tournament. Cheating does not pay.

    • Jay jay, quicksilver is Beston Chambeshi,
      the under 20 national soccer team coach.

      He was given that name in his hey days as
      Nkana ‘Red Devils’ Football Club top striker.

  2. MRI …..when does it apply ….? The borne at 18 is fully developed and There’s no diff in the appearance of Bornes after 18 years …
    In shot it does not apply at U20 coz the bornes from 18years and above look the same …..

  3. Can some one help us with mr jay,who is quick silver?I believe footballers ar the best lairs when it comes to age..

  4. @ shot put, point of correction… no MRI scan for players over 17. Even if they Conducted one, there’s no difference between a 19 year old and a 30 year old. For the u20 & u23 tournaments, birth records are used and not MRIs. Otherwise, go get em boys.

  5. Despite that unfortunate episode the truth is that we have come a very long way vis-a-vis age cheating and are by & large on point! Just by looking at players you can tell a young Vs old player!
    I wish our boys all the best in today’s final & the 2017 African U20 Finals, may we see the start of long & successful careers for the next flag bearers & heirs to the Chipolopolo legacy of Godfrey “Ucar”Chitalu, Alex “Computer” Chola, Kalusha Bwalya, Eston Mulenga, Dick Chama, Dickson Makwaza & all those who have gone before…
