“The Junior Chipolopolo has continued to show the nation an example of the power of unity and purpose. The journey to ultimate glory seems assured going by the dedication the team has continued to display, said the President. On behalf of Government and indeed on my own behalf, l once again wish to encourage the players and the technical bench to continuously set their eyes on the ball in the ongoing campaign to lift the World Cup.”
Meanwhile, RTSA publice relations head Fredrick Mubanga warned motorists to celebrate with caution.
“The Road Transport and Safety Agency (RTSA) wishes to appeal to football fans and the general public to celebrate Zambia’s victories at the on going FIFA U20 World Cup being held in Korea responsibly and with caution.
For the first time in history, Zambia has advanced to the quarter finals of the prestigious competition.

As RTSA we want to appeal to the nation and football fans to celebrate with caution and responsibly. Drivers of vehicles should not overload, over speed or drink and drive,” stated Mubanga.
“Pedestrians should also ensure that they don’t drink and walk about aimlessly on the road. Cyclists and bikers must also take caution and follow all traffic rules and regulations. The RTSA will be on alert to ensure zero road crashes as Zambia celebrate this historical victory. The board, management and staff wishes to congratulate the Under 20 national football team for beating Germany 4-3 to advance to the quarter finals of the Korea FIFA U20 World Cup.”
