Sports Feature Sports Zambia U23 Set For Euro Camp

Zambia U23 national team are set to hold an overseas training camp ahead of their 2019 U23 AFCON campaign.

The pre-tournament camp will be in Europe ahead of the U23 AFCON Egypt will host from November 8-22.

Meanwhile, coach Beston Chambeshi has been overseeing weekly local camp for the last three weeks in Lusaka and on Tuesday trimmed the team from 28 to 20 home-based players this week.

Chambeshi will cut the number further next week to make way for his foreign-based contingent.

Zambia are in Group B together with 2015 third placed side South Africa, Cote d’Ivoire and defending champions Nigeria.

Young Chipolopolo kicks off its campaign on November 9 against South Africa.

The top three finishers at the eight-team tournament will qualify to the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Football Tournament next summer.

GOALKEEPERS:Mangani Banda (Zanaco), Lameck Siame (Kabwe Warriors), Patrick Chooma (KYSA)

DEFENDERS:Shemmy Mayembe, Solomon Sakala (both Zesco United), Paul Banda (Buildcon), Kebson Kamanga (Zanaco), Prosper Chiluya, Field Kandela (both Kabwe Warriors), Moses Nyondo (Nkana), Benson Chali (Forest Rangers

MIDFIELDERS:Linos Makwaza (Power Dynamos), Clinton Lubula (Kansanshi Dynamos), Prince Mumba (Kabwe Warriors), Harrsion Chisala, Oliver Lumbiya (both Nkana), Musonda Siame (Lumwana Radiants), Ngosa Sunzu (Buildcon)


  1. Mangani Banda is not a National team material and that is reason why we failed to penetrate further in the under 20 world cup.He allows silly goals and he is a let down. And where is Lawrence Mundanga, the Nkwazi man?

    • Ba Coach Chambeshi please listen to our cries I agree with Shiwalilwa we need to strengthen team I have been singing about the inclusion of new players in the team but it seems you have chosen to stick with the 2017 U20 squad even though some are under-performing why are you doing this please tell the nation as that team is not yours it is for the Country.

  2. I agree with these comments on BC ‘Quicksilver”
    Chambeshi listen and listen up man. This about preservation of our national pride as a soccer power house on the continent! Its not about those proud boys who became big headed after 2017 glory and left clubs which were glooming them eg Solomon left Warriors went to Napsa then again to Zesco after lifting the junior Afcon. Tekanya mwaiche – wibensa ! Such players need to be sat down and counselled before they go into oblivion – don’t cheat them by selecting them for national duty yet they can’t feature at club level !
