President Edgar Chagwa Lungu says he is  confident that  the Junior Chipolopolo National Team will  perform according to the expectations of the Zambians in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup which commences in South Korea on Sunday.

The Republican President has, therefore, wished the Junior Chipolopolo God’s blessings and strength as they play against Portugal in the Group C opener.

The President is impressed with the good performance that the young Chipolopolo has so far exhibited particularly in the Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations (AFCON) which Zambia hosted and won in March this year.

Mr. Lungu has said the same zeal that the team exhibited to achieve best results in the AFCON should propel the Junior Chipolopolo to even perform better at the FIFA World Cup Tournament.

President Lungu is hopeful that the Junior Chipolopolo will put up a good fight at the World Cup to bring home even greater glory.

President Lungu counselled the Junior Chipolopolo to remain focused, team spirited, and aim at getting goals for them to lift the Cup as football was about winning goals.

“Going by the good performance of the Junior Chipolopolo in the Under-20 AFCON which we hosted in March this year, l am confident they will perform very well at the FIFA World Cup.

 

“  However, for them to achieve desired results they have to remain focused, team spirited and aim at getting goals. On behalf of the Zambian government, the people and on my own behalf, I wish the boys God’s blessings and strength as we look forward to them bringing glory to our country,” the President said.

 

The Republican President said this in a statement by his Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations , Amos Chanda.
