We are ready to conquer COSAFA-ChambeshiBy Nelson Kazeze on 16 Dec 2016
U-20 coach Beston ‘Quick Silver’ Chambeshi says his team is ready to conquer COSAFA with a victory against hosts South Africa today in the regional youth championship finals.
Speaking ahead of the grueling encounter to be played at Moruleng Stadium this evening, Chambeshi said his team had prepared adequately and was ready to continue its dominance in the region with a record 11th title.
He said the technical bench had psyched the players in readiness for the final and expressed confidence that his lads would do the country proud.
“We have done our best; the team is in good shape and a win will be important to ensure we gauge our strength ahead of the U-20 AFCON championship that we are hosting next year,” Chambeshi said.
He added that his team had sharp strikers but was wary of South Africa’s attacking front-line which has scored 15 goals in the team’s race to the final, without conceding a goal.
Zambia on the other hand have scored twelve, conceding only two and keeping two clean sheets in the process.
The final will also see in-form Fashion Sakala challenge South Africa’s Luther Singh for the Golden boot award. The latter is currently on four goals with the former on five.
And South Africa’s U-20 head coach Thabo Senong said his team was ready to maintain its perfect performance at the tournament.
He however noted that the final was going to be explosive given the prowess of both teams at the tournament.
“Zambia is a strong team with good players. We are also using the tournament to prepare for the U-20- AfCON hence facing a team like Zambia is a good preparation for us,” said Senong.
