Numba says Zambia U17 ready for Malawi U17

Sports Numba says Zambia U17 ready for Malawi U17

Zambia Under-17 coach Mumamba Numba says they are ready for Malawi in Friday’s 2017 COSAFA U17 Cup semifinal in Port Louis.

Numba’s side is aiming for its debut final appearance in the COSAFA U17 Cup.

Winner will face either hosts Mauritius or record two-time champions South Africa in the July 31 final.

“Morale in camp is very high and they are geared for the semifinals. We are playing Malawi which is equally a good team and I think Malawi and us are almost the same,” Numba said.

But Malawi, unlike Zambia, are unbeaten after topping Group A with a perfect 9; with 9 points, 9 goals and zero goals conceded.

“I don’t think that can worry us we have depth in strikers who can penetrate Malawi and get goals,” Numba said.

“We just have to encourage our boys to give us their best so that they take us to the final.”

Zambia qualified after finishing second in Group B on 6 points after losing 1-0 to Mozambique in their final game.

Numba will be banking on top scorer Lameck Banda who has 5 goals,two more than Malawi’s Chinsinsi Banda.

“But we have a team that can give mother Zambia victory in Friday’s game as long as we apply ourselves positively,” Numba said.

      You sound so stressed and lonely. You would have appeared wise
      had you not commented owing to the fact that the news item was not to your taste.

  2. The coach has summed it all up – Malawi are as good as us, we shall therefore lose this game. I can’t agree less.
