Women U20 arrive in SA for crucial WC qualifier

The Zambia U20 national team on Thursday morning arrived in South Africa for the second leg of their 2016 Papua New Guinea Women’s u20 World Cup second round qualifier.

However, seven members of the team were detained by the South African immigration on grounds that they did not have birth certificates and consent from their parents to travel.

Fazfootball reports that it took efforts from the Association’s Secretariat and the Zambian Embassy in South Africa to sort out the ordeal which took close to seven hours.

The girls that were detained are Barbra Banda, Martha Tembo, Melani Mulenga, Penelop Mulubwa, Rhodah Chileshe, Ngambo Musole and Hellen Chanda.

The team has however settled and trained on Thursday afternoon and will train at the match venue on Friday, 9 October at 15h00.

The first leg between the two nations ended in a goalless stalemate in Zambia about two weeks ago and Zambia could proceed to the final qualifying round with a scoring draw.

Basetsana will be without the injured duo of defenders Chamelle Wiltshire and Bongeka Gamede who played against Zambia in the first leg.

The match will be played on Saturday, 10 October at the Makhulong Stadium in Tembisa. Kickoff is at 15h00.

      No Ba Don that is one of the reasons we never develop, blaming others for our shortcomings…South African law is very clear concerning boarder control; you need parental written consent to enter or leave the country if you are a minor…BA FAZ NEVER DID THEIR HOMEWORK AND THUS COSTED US EMOTIONAL TORTURE FOR SEVEN HOURS!!!
