Cosafa U20: Zambia take on South Africa in final

The Zambia U20 national will today (Friday) renew the rivalry with South Africa when the two teams meet in the final of the regional Cosafa U20 championship.

Zambia beat Congo DR 2 – 1 in a hard fought semi final on their way to the final while South Africa overwhelmed Angola 5 – 0.

Zambia have an illustrious record at the tournament having already won 10 titles and they look favorites to win their 11th title but the challenge from the hosts will be stern.

Zambia will be hosting the CAF Africa Junior Championship in February and will be hoping to mint gold as a booster ahead of the big tournament.

Beston Chambeshi will be looking to Zanaco midfielder Boyd Musonda to pull the strings for the junior Chipolpolo. Musonda has been in excellent form and blasted home the winner for Zambia from a set piece in the game against Congo.

Edward Chilufya will also be key on the wide areas as he has been a constant threat in all the games played so far.

The striking partnership of Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala look potent enough to bang in the goals and the understanding between the two lads looks to be growing by the game. Patson put in a sublime pass for Sakala when he put Zambia ahead in the semi final.

The defense led by captain Solomon Sakala looks solid. Sakala has been massive in the Zambian defense which also has Zesco United Shemmy Mayembe and Prosper Chiluya.

Against the high scoring South African’s, the Zambian lads will have to be at their best on the day to walk away with the prized title.
