Zambia U20 Team News: Chambeshi to stick to Africa Cup winning team

Zambia U20 national team coach Beston Chambeshi will stick to the Africa Cup of Nations winning team and formation for Zambia’s opening group B match against Portugal on Sunday.

The ZamFoot Crew understands that despite the temptation to shake up the team at the World Cup after some impressive performances by Conlyde Luchanga in attack and new entrant Ngosa Sunzu in midfield during the training camp in Spain, Chambeshi will go with the proven combinations.

Luchanga who was part of the U20 Africa Cup of Nations winning team and has played for the Chipolopolo senior team scored three goals in three games during the Spain tour.

Sunzu who plays in Israel is a holding midfielder and was in contention for a place ahead of Cosafa Championship player of the tournament Boyd Musonda in that position.

Probable Line-up

Mangani Banda – Shemmy Mayembe, Moses Nyondo, Solomon Sakala, Prosper Chiluya – Emmanuel Banda, Boyd Musonda, Enock Mwepu – Fashion Sakala, Patson Daka, Edward Chilufya

Have your say on how you would want the team to line-up.

  1. As a Coach i would also stick to the team that won me a trophy not more than two months ago. But some people’s form can deep. Sunzu is exposed because of his involvement in the Israeli league. I would love to see come in and add stability to the team.

    • Starting is good. We will advise as we go.
      Sunzu should be super sub when Zambia is leading by 2- lock game, rest Edward. And have Boyd, Sunzu, Mwepu, Emmanuel in middle.
      When Zambia is down, Lunch a comes in for Edward again.
      Edward is a good player, but he is the youngest, even younger than the best Prosper Chiluya.

      Watch games on YouTube live. Saturday games were clear enough.

  2. ALL the best lads and lets be alert on how we play our football and take note chambeshi portugal like player acting and diving lets not be dragged into cheap yellow cards. Im so pumped for our U20 chipolpolo iye
