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.
