Beston Chambeshi says his Zambia U20 team has settled down in South Korea and looking geared for Sunday’s opening day Group C clash against Portugal.
The U20 AFCON champions arrived for the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup on Wednesday at the end of a fortnight pre-tournament training camp in Spain.
Zambia have settled down in South Korea after their gruelling flight from Europe via the UAE in Jeju where Group C are based and held their second full day of practice on Friday.
“The team is OK now from the time we arrived and they have acclimatized and there is a positive response to training now,” Chambeshi said.
“Now, they have to focus and look forward to Sunday’s game, it is the opening group game so we have to start on a good note.”
Iran and Costa Rica are the other teams in Group C whom they play on May 24 and May 27 respectively.
