Burundi U20 coach comes to the aid of his players
Burundi U20 national team coach Bipfubusa Joslin came to the aid of his players after Zambian counter part Charles Bwale claimed they looked over age.
Joslin said Burundians just grew fast and are huge in stature generally but the players are all of the right age.
” The problem is that the majority of Burundi people grow fast and are just huge in stature otherwise these boys are real U20 players,” He said.
Zambia beat Burundi by a lone goal thanks to a Lameck Banda long range strike. Zambia went on to finish the match with ten players after the goalscorer was handed a second yellow card for a second bookable offence as he removed his shirt while celebrating.
The two will face off in a second leg encounter on July 21st in Ngozi, Burundi with the winner over two legs set to book a place at the 2019 Niger U20 AFCON tournament.
