2020 India U-17WWC: Zambia through to next round after Namibia withdraw
Zambia U-17 Women’s national team has progressed to the first round of the FIFA Under-17 Women World Cup India 2020 qualifiers following the withdraw of Namibia from the Competition.
The young Copper Queens were scheduled to play Namibia on Saturday in the first leg of the preliminary round and host them in a return leg on the weekend of January 24-26 but the Namibian FA have decided to withdraw citing financial constraints.
“We regret to inform you that Namibia FA withdrew from the African qualifiers of FIFA U-17 WWC 2020. Consequently, the mission of the officials of the said matches is canceled and Zambia is qualified to the next round of the tournament,” read the correspondence from CAF to FAZ confirming the development.
FAZ General Secretary Adrian Kashala says the team has broken camp but will resume training soon in preparation for the next round match against South Africa.
Zambia will play South Africa in the first round with the first leg set for the weekend of February 28 to March 1 while the return leg will be played on the window of March 13-15.
