Numba not worried about U20 loss to Zanaco
Zambia U20 National team head coach Numba Mumamba is unconcerned with his team’s loss at the hands of Sensational Zanaco. Numba said the Match was meant to assess the players readiness to represent Zambia at the tournament.
The young Chipolopolo came up short when they met super league defending champions Sensational Zanaco who put five goals past their goalkeeper.
” The result does not matter to us . Today was about assessing who is ready to play in the first team and represent the country at the tournament,” Numba told Zambianfootball.co.zm
Nkwazi youngster Lameck Banda joined camp yesterday and had his first training session today much to the delight of his coach.
” Its is a morale boaster to have Prince and Lameck in the team. Lameck is one of the players we rely on upfront” he said
” Training is going on well, That’s why we thought of giving them a friendly against Zanaco. To see if they can withstand the pressure. If they can stand the pressure from Zanaco then it will be easier once they face an U20 opponent,” he added.
The Young Chipolopolo will meet the Ugandans in their tournament opener at the Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe on December 6.
