Zanaco duo out of Junior Chipolopolo friendly against Amajita
Zanaco duo Fashion Sakala and Boyd Musonda will not be part of Zambia Under-20’s Sunday’s friendly match against South Africa at Nkoloma Stadium.
The two teenangers have been named in the bankers’ CAF Champions League first leg tie against APR of Rwanda.
Both Sakala and Musonda are key members of the the Wedson ‘Wada Wada’ Nyirenda and Beston Chambeshi drilled Under-20.
Musonda, a holding midfielder rose to stardom at the 2016 Cosafa Cup and showed a knack for goals with 2 super strikes as he helped Zambia to gold at the regional tournament.
Fashion has just returned from a 2 weeks trial with Russian side Spartak Moscow Youth side, and the players’ handlers claim that he has been offered a three year deal after impressing.
In the absence of Fashion and Austrian based striker Patson Daka, arguably the youngest member of the squad Joseph Phiri will start against Amajita on Sunday.
