Chambeshi justifies ‘questionable’ call ups
Chipolopolo care taker coach Beston Chambeshi has explained the logic behind his ‘questionable’ team selection for the just ended three day camp. Chambeshi explained that the young players made the country proud during the last U20 World Cup despite some of them not featuring for their clubs hence he can not throw them away just like that.
“Our aim was to bring them back, These boys did our country proud when they went to the World Cup there is no way we can just throw them away. Whenever we call up a camp we can call thirty maybe four or three can come from U20 or U23 so that we keep them going,” He said.
“As you have seen some of them are now playing at their clubs but it’s not their fault all we just need is to monitor them so that we see how ready they are and they have shown. I have seen Muchindu, I have see Mangani and it’s good for the country there is no way you can throw away such players after reaching that far,” He added.
Chambeshi said they were still waiting on Zesco United players who they still have room for. The Nkana boss also revealed that they were monitoring Ziyo Tembo who is out with Malaria.
“We are coming back with the same players because we waiting on Zesco United whose players we had to release because of the continental engagement that they had. We will also add maybe one or two Players, Ziyo Tembo is out with sickness so we are waiting to see if he recovers in time he might join us ” He said.
Zambia will join the 2018 COSAFA tournament at the quarter final stage where they will face Namibia in the 2nd of June. The tournament will be held in Limpopo, South Africa.
