Zambia U17 crush out Africa Championship qualifiers
The Zambia U17 national team on Sunday afternoon crushed out of the 2017 Junior Africa Championship when they were beaten 1 – 0 in Sudan.
The young Chipolopolo needed only a scoring draw to go past Sudan but they succumbed to a 15th minute go by Shihabeldeen Siddig Alzobair and they failed to recover.
Coach Numba Mumamba had made three changes to the that drew nil all at home but still failed to get the winning formula.
The 2016 team has failed to emulate the 2014 squad coached by Chris Kaunda that saw Zambia make a maiden appearance at the African Championship.
Many will look at what could have been if the team had not been embroiled in the age cheating saga that saw Zambia expelled at the Cosafa Championship a week before the qualifiers began.
