Zambia Under-20 coach Beston Chambeshi has hailed the just-ended Spain camp as a great success.
The 2017 U20 AFCON champions ended their two-week camp on the Canary Islands on Monday and departed for South Korea on Tuesday morning ahead of this weekends kick-off of the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup.
During their fortnight in Spain, where they arrived on May 6, Zambia played three friendlies, winning two and drawing one.
“It is nice for the team when you are preparing and getting results,” Chambeshi said.
“It is a sign that there is teamwork and motivation. All we need is to maintain the same spirit and work rate. I think we are moving in the right direction.”
Zambia beat CD Tenerife 3-0 last Wednesday before drawing 2-2 with CD Marino on Friday.
They wrapped-up their friendly scheduled on Monday with a 4-0 win over Las Palmas’ B side.
“We now have to put aside the friendly games and look at the bigger stage which is the World Cup,” said Chambeshi.
“Football is about unity, if you are not united you can’t make a team.”
Zambia commence their campaign with a Group C opener against Portugal on May 21.
Iran and Costa Rica are the other teams in Group C.
