Zambia U17 national team give Zanaco a tough time
Mauritius bound Zambia U17 national team today played two practice matches with super league side Sensational Zanaco at Sunset Stadium as part of their preparation ahead of the COSAFA championships.
The Young Copper Bullets held Zambian Champions Zanaco to a goalless draw in the first match.
Zanaco featured a strong squad with the likes of Reuben Ayub, George Chilufya, Felix Nyaende and U20 AFCON winning midfielder Boyd Musonda.
The boys threatened on many occasions and could have taken the lead but lack of experience failed them in critical moments.
In the second match, Zanaco introduced the likes of Saith Sakala, Ksame Attam, Langson Kapumbu, Damiano Kola, Isaac Chansa and Kunda Nkandu, The junior Chipolopolo also had a completely different side and also gave a good account for themselves but this time Sensational Zanaco managed to score two goals through Andrew Kwiliko and Boyd Mwangelwa.
Zambia is expected to leave for Mauritius on Tuesday where they will face Madagascar, South Africa and Mozambique in the group stages.
The young guns are being coached by Numba Mumamba with Charles Bwale and Perry ‘The Principal’ Mutapa as his assistants.
