    I am watching the delayed beaming of the Zambia/South Africa U20 on Btv. This side a very good team. They are making S.A to look ordinary. However, the coach has to work on trying to make his player efficient in front of goals. They create chances very well but score only a few.

  16. C.J says:

    if u can’t beat them, consider negotiating wit them.

  17. Don says:

    Well done guys, you’ve earned the right to dream big.Let us keep on working on our shortfalls so we get into top gear for the upcoming U 20 Africa Cup so that we are among the top 3 to represent the continent at the W/cup. This is a perfect morale booster , so stay sharp young guns.

  25. Mwebantu says:

    Congratulations boys!

  26. quicksilver says:

    Well done Boys, its a sweet victory. Let FAZ maintain the team and technical bench.

  27. guys guys guys why do we always have to compare kamanga with kalusha’s achievements king kalu has done his part and its time we gave support to the current faz team.
    let’s not live on past glory and consider the future, congratulations young chipolopolo.

  28. Sibs says:

    Congratulations to the young boys. Job well done. It’s always a pleasure getting one over RSA at any level.
    Hope the team can have more friendly games before the Africa Youth Championships at home.

  29. Bsimms says:

    Hope they are being paid their allowances in time & in full. These boys need motivation.

    Let’s learn from how Mamelody Sundowns treated its players prior & after winning the African championship. All of them were awarded for their hard work & the effort was seen on the pitch against our very own [Zesco*] & Mayuka’s team in the final.

    Let’s motivate the boys. 2017 is here & the host country must not only reach the final but be victorious too.

    I believe with good team management these boys will go far!
