U20 face Germany, hope to make historyBy Diggers Reporter on 31 May 2017
Zambia Under-20 seek redemption at 13:00 hours today in Jeju, South Korea as they face 1981 World champions Germany in a battle to reach the quarterfinals of the 2017 FUIFA World Cup.
Zambia has never been to the U20 World Cup quarterfinals after making their last 16 debut in the team’s second tournament appearance at the 2007 event with coach George Lwandamina, where they were eliminated 2-1 by Nigeria at that stage.
Beston Chambeshi’s side returns to Jeju seven days after they lost 1-0 to Costa Rica in Cheonan in their final Group C match.
That defeat was Zambia’s first loss at the tournament after winning both their opening two Group C matches against Portugal (2-1) and Iran (4-2).
Chambeshi will be hoping that Jeju continues to be their lucky home today against Germany who have stuttered through this year’s tournament with a draw, loss and a win to finish 3rd in Group B before qualifying as one of the four best third placed teams.
Zambia who will be facing Germany at Under-20 level for the first time, will again be banking on their tried and tested attacking force led by Fashion Sakala who already has two goals at the tournament.
Patson Daka and Edward Chilufya will also be hoping to improve from their single respective goals scored so far.
Captain and defender Solomon Sakala returns from suspension and hopes to make a mark.
Winner of this match will face victor of the France versus Italy last 16 tie in the quarterfinals on June 5.
