Zambia may face world champions at Under-20 meetBy Joseph Mwenda on 14 Mar 2017
Zambia face the prospect of playing one of three former World champions when the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup draws are made by host nation South Korea on March 15.
Record champions Argentina including previous winners Portugal and Germany are among the 24 nations at the tournament South Korea will host from May 20 to June 11.
Zambia will be making their third appearance at the tournament after making their debut in 1999 in Nigeria where they were eliminated at the group stage and in 2007 in Canada where they reached the last 16.
Beston Chambeshi’s team is in Pot 3 meaning they will avoid record five-time European champions Italy, England, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia and Honduras who are in the same pot.
Honduras is one of two teams in the 24-team draws that they have previously faced at the tournament after beating the Central Americans 4-3 in the group stage in 1999.
Uruguay is the other side and Zambia could meet the South Americans again whom they beat 2-0 in a group stage match in Canada.
Uruguay are placed in Pot 1 together with two-time champions Portugal, 1981 winners Germany, the USA, 2013 winners France and hosts South Korea.
Record six-time champions Argentina are in Pot 2 alongside Mexico, Japan, Costa Rica, New Zealand and 2017 U20 AFCON runners Senegal who lost 2-0 to Zambia in the March 12 final.
U20 AFCON semifinalists Guinea and South Africa are in Pot 4 together with Vanuatu, Iran, Ecuador and Vietnam.Related Items
