Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda has saluted the Zambia U20 teams’milestone run at the2017 FIFA U20 World Cup but had strong words about the teams defence.
Zambai U20 scored as many goals as they scored en route to their debut quarterfinal appearance at the South Korea tournament before 10-man Italy beat them 3-2 on June 5 to deny them a first-ever semifinal slot.
“We looked promising in the first 10 minutes but again our defence didn’t do a good job(against Italy),” Nyirenda said.
“We have been vulnerable at the back in all the games we have played. We have been coming from behind.
“The only thing that sufficed is we have a good attack, but in defence, we have something to think about.”
