Cindy Banda leads Copper Princesses’ squad for Cosafa Women’s U-17 tournament

Zambia U-17 Women’s national team head coach Kaluba Kangwa has named his final 20 member squad for the 2020 COSAFA Women’s Championship to be staged in Port Elizabeth from November 4-16.

Coach Kaluba Kangwa will be without 12 members of last year’s squad after COSAFA changed their age range for this year’s tournament. Last year’s top goalscorer for the Copper Princesses, Florence Kasonde, midfield ace Maweta Gloria Chilenga among others.

However Speedy winger Cindy Banda, Tisilile Lungu, Esther ‘Gelo’ Banda, Esther Siamfuko, Luty Kamanga, and Shelly Masumo are among the players who have survived the age chop and will lead Zambia’s hunt for glory.

Newcomers Tionge ‘Didi’ Sambo, Bupe Banda, and Beauty Matilda Zulu will be key in midfield for coach Kaluba Kangwa after losing both Maweta Gloria Chilenga and Josephine Phiri.

The Copper Princesses will leave for the tournament venue, Port Elizabeth on Monday next week.

Zambia will open its account on November 4, 2020 with a titanic clash against hosts South Africa before facing Tanzania 48 hours later. Kangwa’s lasses will then play Comoros on November 10 before concluding their outing with a game against Zimbabwe two days later.
