    • @Jay Jay – these are round-robin games being played in different countries comprising 4 teams each for the countries that qualified to FIFA U20 Korea 2017. Zambia is part of the teams that are in Korea and Portugal is amongst the 4 teams that are competing in France.
      These are just preparatory or friendly games ahead of the actual tournament to be hosted by Korea. Zambia is luck because they are in Korea and they already getting acclimatized to the environment there where the actual games will take place.

  1. Zambia making themselves feel good. Look at Portugal’s opponent’s and compare to Zambia’s opponents in South Korea.

  2. our team needs to improve in all departments. we won the afcon under 20 becoz of home support. otherwise the tournament in south Korea has exposed our shortcomings.

  3. Just prepare than counting your opponents looses, its ok to loose while preparing because you try different systems. Look at Zambia national team, who did they play during the international break! Zimbabwe! No wonder other countries dont want international friendlies with us because we are finished and don’t want to recognize it and start planning for the future.

  4. We have Just Walloped Honduras 4 -1 the Way to Go Young Boys quarter final or semi – final is looming for them
