Chambeshi unveils U-20 World Cup squadBy Diggers Reporter on 5 May 2017
Beston Chambeshi has named his final 21-member team for the 2017 FIFA Under-20 World Cup tournament in South Korea.
Chambeshi has dropped four faces that have been prominent in the team from inception all through the 2016 Cosafa U20 Cup and U20 AFCON triumphs.
Axed for the team are midfielders Sydney Phiri and his Mufulira Wanderers club mate Crispin Sakulanda.
Midfielder Mumba Mwape of Spanish club Getafe B team has also been dumped alongside Red Arrows striker Joseph Phiri.
Phiri’s club mate Patrick Ngoma hopes of another junior stint have fallen through after he too failed to make the cut.
There was also disappointment for promising Zanaco and Zambia Under-17 striker Damiano Kola who was hoping to break through to the Under-20 team.
However, striker Conlyde Luchanga, who recently returned home after a modest six month stints at Israeli club Hapoel Ra’anana, has kept his place despite his lacklustre showing at U20 AFCON.
Also in the team is his ex-Ra’anana club mate midfielder Ngosa Sunzu, young brother of Stopilla and Felix Sunzu, who is a new face in the team.
Otherwise the team has almost picked itself led by strikers Fashion Sakala, Edward Chilufya and Patson Daka including midfielders Boyd Musonda and Emmanuel Banda plus goalkeeper Mangani Banda.
The team finally leaves for a three-week training camp in Spain on Friday evening after a one week delay due to logistical problems.
Zambia are in Group C at the tournament South Korea will host from May 20 to June 11 where they will face Iran, Costa Rica and two-time World champions Portugal.
Chambeshi’s team will face Portugal in the two sides opening game match on May 21 in Jeju where Group C will be based.
GOALKEEPERS: Mangani Banda (Zanaco), Samson Banda (Zesco United), James Phiri (Lusaka Dynamos)
DEFENDERS: Moses Nyondo (Nkana), Edward Tembo (Gomes), Prosper Chiluya (Lumwana Radiants), Solomon Sakala (Napsa Stars), Shemmy Mayembe (Zesco United), Benson Chali (Forest Rangers), Boston Muchindu (Nkana)
MIDFIELDERS: Ngosa Sunzu (Hapoel Raanana, Israel), Musonda Siame (Kafue Celtic), Harrison Chisala (Nkana), Fashion Sakala (Spartak Moscow, Russia), Enock Mwepu (Napsa Stars), Emmanuel Banda (Esmoriz, Portugal), Kenneth Kalunga (IFS, Denmark), Boyd Musonda (Zanaco)
STRIKERS: Conlyde Luchanga (Lusaka Dynamos), Edward Chilufya (Mphande Youth Academy), Patson Daka (FC Liefering, Austria)
