We want to build a very strong team- Chiyangi
Zambia national team assistant coach Aggrey Chiyangi believes the previous Zambia U20 National team’s performance was key to the rebuilding process at the senior team level.
Chiyangi revealed that the technical bench was a process of phasing out players from the team which was being used just some 12 months ago and that the technical staff want to build a strong team to compete at highest level.
” In the first place we have a programme of building a team. If you look at this team it’s full of new players. The team we had about a year ago is being phased out. The performance of the U20 National team was vital as it’s our base for rebuilding process as we want to build a strong team to compete at the highest level,” he said
The former Sensational Zanaco and Nkana Coach said qualifying for the 2019 Cameroon Africa cup of nations was the primary target but we’re aiming at winning it.
The Copper Bullets who missed a chance to make their maiden appearance at the World cup will continue their pursuit for the elusive first set shifting focus to Qatar 2022.
” We missed qualifying for the world but our building process continues for the next world cup. We also want to win the next AFCON but before that happens we have to secure qualification which is our primary target for now,” he said.
Zambia U20 National team won the 2017 U20 AFCON title for the first time in the history of Zambia and reached the quarter finals of the World cup another first . Three of the players from that all conquering U20 squad have already established themselves in the team with a further four joining the fringe players bunch.
