Zambia finish runners-up at Korea 4-nations

Sports Zambia finish runners-up at Korea 4-nations

Zambia finished as runners up at the Four-Nation Under-20 Invitational Tournament in South Korea after thumping Honduras 4-1 on Thursday.

Hosts Korea emerged winners thanks to a superior head to head record over Zambia after the two teams finished with six points.

Both teams scored seven goals each and conceded five each but Korea were champions because they beat Zambia 4-1.

On Thursday, Enock Mwepu’s brace propelled Beston Chambeshi’s Junior Chipolopolo side to a 4-1 win over Honduras with Edward Chilufya and Emmanuel Banda scoring the other goals.

This win helped Zambia recover from Monday’s 4-1 loss to Korea.

The African champions started the tournament with a 2-0 victory over Ecuador on Saturday before being humiliated by the Koreans.

Meanwhile, Korea on Thursday lost 2-0 to Ecuador having beaten Honduras 3-2 in the opener on Saturday.

Zambia are warming up for the forthcoming Under-20 FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Korea in May-June.

Zambia will tackle Portugal, Iran and Costa Rica in Group C of the Junior World Cup.


  1. I told you suckers, that Korea had the right to win that game because it was a friendly at home, these U20 boys are forward thinkers not dununa reverse, they know you can only score when you go forward.

    • But imwe fi PF can’t you be happy and except 2nd place for once? Spare the young boys you thugs. These are not elections, rejoice for once even you come second to UPND.

    • its a very good performance for the boys,well done just keep on putting zambia on the world map, u the best guys u can do more

    • 1.1 Nostradamus

      ??????? Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus, Nostradamus @@@@@@@@@@@@@@!

  2. Hw foolish u r start talkin abut politics wen it’s football plz u mr Nostradamus if u ve no thing 2 comment plz kip quit

  3. I have seen a better performance than Korean game. I am sure coach has seen what we have talking about- defense. All the same great performance and good game it was!

    You have done us proud, & this team will set Africa on Fire, & Qualify us for the first World Cup ever as the current senior team is rather weak.

  5. Good performance. Congrats boys. Ba Chambeshi nabanenu my technical bench mwabombeni mukwayi. Am very positive that after extensive training in England, our team will improve massively. Good morning.

  6. Can’t people forget politics for once? This HH and Edgar should not cloud your thinking to the extent that even when coaxing a woman you’re seeing either HH or Edgar.

  7. This was poorly concluded .. The host MUST come second since they have same points like the visiting team Zambia. The best they could do was to rematch Zambia vs S.Korea for first and second places respectively
