Numba’s new look Zambia U20 National team lost their opening game of the 2017 Cosafa U20 Championships starting their title defence on a rather unfortunate note.
“The last U20 winning the AFCON does not put me under pressure because the team i have is comprised if the U17 national team who did very well at U17 level but we need to give them chance. As we start preparing for AFCON we can fuse in a few players but for this tournament we thought of using the U17 national team because we want them to progress,” Numba said
The sensational Zanaco tactician still has hope of his team progressing to the next round.
“We still have two more games to play before the end of group matches so we still a good chance to qualify but we must apply ourselves well to pick up maximum points in the two games,” Numba said.
Numba was also quick to praise his opponents saying they were the better team.
” They played well from the start of the game. We must give credit were it’s due. They were better than us, Numba said.
