Tiye Tiye Chipolopolo! Chambeshi set to maintain starting XI
Senegal have never won a major continental title at any level while Zambia will be looking to add to the 2012 African Cup of Nations trophy on Sunday night at Lusaka’s Heroes Stadium.
Zambia Under-20 coach Beston ‘Quicksilver’ Chambeshi is set to name unchanged line up from the one which started in the semi final against South Africa.
The ZamFoot Crew understand that Chambeshi will might Portuguese based midfielder Emmanuel ‘The Maestro’ Banda Jnr a starting berth though there’s a slight chance that Kenneth Kalunga might just get the nod ahead of him.
The rest of the team are untouchables with Patson ‘Papa’ Daka, Fashion’Mr Fashion’ Sakala and Edward ‘Tiger’ Chilufya all set to earn starts upfront.
Boyd ‘The Tanker’ Musonda and Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu in central midfield, and should Banda Jnr start then it will be interesting to watch how Mwepu and him swap positions on the pitch when things don’t go to well for Zambia.
Whenever Zambia is experiencing a bad spell on the pitch, coach Chambeshi normally switches Mwepu and Banda position. There are games when Mwepu has been ineffective as no.10 and that allows him to drop to no.8 while Banda pushes further up the pitch.
In defence, Chambeshi will keep his faith in Shemmy Mayembe, Prosper Chiluya, Moses Nyondo and Solomon ‘Skippo’ Sakala.
Zambia Probable XI: 1. Mangani Banda – 13. Shemmy Mayembe 2. Moses Nyondo 5. Moses Nyondo 3. Prosper Chiluya – 11. Enock ‘Computer’ Mwepu, 21. Boyd Musonda, 12. Emmanuel Banda Jnr – 10. Fashion Sakala, 20. Patson Daka 14. Edward Chilufya
