Zambia Under-20 kicked off their Spain camp friendly match itinerary with a victory on Tuesday.

Beston Chambeshi side beat Tenerife’s junior team 1-0 on the Canary Islands where Zambia are holding their fortnight training camp from January 25 to February 7.

An 85th minute goal from Spain-based midfielder Mwape Mumba handed Zambia.

The goal came five minutes after Mumba had replaced Danish-based midfielder Kenneth Kalunga.

“The game was fine, we are happy with the way the boys played the game especially in the attacking phase but we missed chances and we should have scored more goals,” Chambeshi said.

“The finishing was not OK. The opponent wasn’t an easy team but they gave us a good game.

“We hope we have learnt one or two things from here especially in defence, we don’t want slip-ups there.”

Meanwhile, Zambia will face FC Basel’s B side in their second game on Thursday at 13h00 Zambian time.

The team will head back home next week ahead of their February 12 friendly in Ndola against fellow 2017 U20 AFCON finalists South Africa ahead of the championship Zambia will host from February 26 to March 12.

Zambia are in Group A alongside Guinea, Mali and Egypt at the tournament and will be based in Lusaka at National Heroes Stadium.

South Africa are in Group B together with Cameroon, Sudan and Senegal and will be play their games at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

  3. Zambia being a Christian Nation. It has been a WINNER and will remain a WINNER as Christ won the battle at the CROSS and said it is finished. Count how many wins (awards) Zambia and Zambian at lager won last year. You will be surprised what Lord has done for this Nation. Zambians let us love one another as the Lord has commanded us. Hate being seen on social media is dangerous on the part of the practitioner. Love across board despite your political affiliation. LOVE goes above politics. Don’t allow hatred to enslave you to even drag you into insulting the President. God forbid. GO GO Zambian boys.

  4. Wishing our boys all the best in their preps & more especially the tournament itself when it finally starts.

    With regard to Charles Musonda & his sons, their fight seemed to have been with Kalu (hangover from Mufulira days) & realistically, the only way that they will ever have a chance of playing @ the highest international level will be for Chipolopolo, whether @ AFCON or indeed the World Cup itself, they should forget about ever featuring for Belgium. Come on Charlie, move on…
