Mutapa names 24 for COSAFA U-20
The 2019 Cosafa U17 winning boss in Malawi and now with the Zambia Under-20 Oswald Mutapa has named his 24-member provisional squad for the COSAFA Men’s Championships that will be kick-off in Lusaka from December 4th-14th 2019.
Mutapa and his charges have roped in some of the lads from the U17 Cosafa victorious team in Mauritius such as a sensational 16yr old midfielder Kelvin Mwanza from Maestro United.
Zambia is hosting the tournament for the third consecutive year and they have failed to win it on home soil so far. The last time when the Junior Chipolopolo won the tournament was in 2016 away in South Africa via a 2-1 win against the hosting Nation the Amajita side which is now U23 national team.
The junior Chipolopolo will start their campaign on December 4th with a tie against Botswana at Nkoloma Stadium before taking on Comoros three days later at the same venue and they will conclude their group matches with a date against Malawi on 9th December.
The young Chipolopolo are the most successful nation in the COSAFA Under-20 Championship competition with 11 victories in all.
