Zambia Vs Mali
Zambia Vs Mali
Under-20 coach Beston ‘Quicksilver’ Chambeshi says qualifying to this May’s FIFA World Cup in South Korea shouldn’t distract Zambia from focusing on the Under-20 Africa Cup.

Chambeshi’s side on Wednesday evening thumped Mali 6-1 at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka to reach the semifinals and book a place at the South Korea World Youth Cup.

He said Zambia is seeking to advance further at Junior Africa Cup.

“I am happy for the team to qualify to the world cup but I am looking at the next game,” Chambeshi said.

“It is important to go further in this tournaments. Right now my technical staff is looking at this tournament, the tournament is still on,” he said.

Zambia, who sits on six points from the first two matches, have already won Group A having beaten Guinea 1-0 in the opener on Sunday.

The Young Chipolopolo concludes Group A action on Saturday with a game against Egypt in Lusaka.

“I will not rest some players but what I can say is that I have confidence in each and every player so I will take the next game with a serious approach,” Chambeshi said.

Second placed Egypt have two points while Guinea and Mali have a point each from two matches played.

  1. Please get Professionals to look after turfs, there is a science behind that its not just about watering till the soil is swampy!!

    • We urgently need to invest in mowers, grass fertilizers, rollers, hard wearing turf seeds…even head hunting for one Englishman groundsman to come and look at those pitches and paying him and his family a months holiday in Luangwa Game Park.
      I was shocked to saw one Malian player fail to knee slide when he scored.

    • Jay Jay, the turf is not being watered currently.
      Its persistently raining an average of 3 times every 24 hours.

  2. THAT’S THE SPIRIT “QUICKSILVER”. RESTING BECAUSE OF QUALIFYING TO SOUTH KOREA’S YOUTH WORLD CUP IS BEING STUP!D. A NEW ZAMBIAN SIDE TEAM WITH A DIFFERENT WORK CULTURE APPROACH MUST BE DEVELOPED FROM THIS U20 OR UNDER WHATEVER TEAMS. WE WANT INDIVIDUAL PLAYERS WITH A COLLECTIVELY SPIRIT OF EXCEEDING. THE IDEA OF RELAXING AFTER WINNING ONE (EVEN FINALS) IS NOT WITH WESTERN WORK CULTURE. ZAMBIA MUST ADOPT IT, TOO.

  3. He should focus on winning the Afcon u/20. It’s not the first time Zambia has qualified to the u/20 world cup. That’s not the greatest achievement. His greatest achievement is to win this cup especially that it’s on home soil.

  5. I like the spirit the boys displayed! Remember that same spirit helped us to win the 2012 African Cup of Nations! Team work and team spirit is important and must not miss after you meet the physical fitness criteria you all must meet! Many games we lost previously to North Africans were lost psychologically in spite having had better players! God bless you Zambia and U20!
