Italy books Q/final clash with ZambiaBy Diggers Reporter on 1 Jun 2017
Italy take on Zambia next week in the quarterfinals of the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup in South Korea after booking their last 8 date with a 2-1 win over their European rivals France today.
All three goals came before the hour mark after Riccardo Orsolini put Italy ahead in the 27th minute.
Orsolini took his tally three goals so far at the tournament for unbeaten Italy.
France, who qualified to the last 16 with a 100 percent record on 9 points, as many goals and none conceded, levelled matters from the spot in the 37th minute through Jean-Kevin Augustin.
But Giuseppe Panico made sure of Italy’s passage in the 53rd minute, making it Italy’s fourth quarterfinal appearance.
Meanwhile,Beston Chambeshi’s Zambia touched down in Suwon on Thursday ahead of their June 5 quarterfinals clash with Italy. Chambeshi says he never doubted his boys would rally to beat Germany in Wednesday’s last 16 tie at the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup in South Korea.
Zambia rallied twice, in both regular and and 30 minutes of extra time, to beat Germany 4-3 and make their debut qualification to the U20 World Cup quarterfinals.
Zambia has in all its three wins in South Korea come from behind to snatch a win with the exception being their 1-0 loss to Costa Rica in their final Group C match on May 27.
“You have seen that in the last three games we have conceded a goal in the first 10 to 16 minutes but we have managed to comeback. But we agreed with the boys that if we can go for 30 minutes without conceding a goal, then I know the strength of the team. Unfortunately they (Germany) scored in the last 7 minutes of the first half,”Chambeshi said.
“We had the halftime pep talk, and I said I had faith in you boys to erase the 1-0 and after a tactical change when we brought on Edward Chilufya, we got the result. They a strong team,they were good but tactically at least my team was better. We capitalized on that and we scored three goals in the second half and it showed that we have a sharp frontline.”
Shemmy Mayembe’s goal in the 107th minute of extra time booked Zambia’s last 8 ticket.
This Is after Emmanuel Banda,Fashion Sakala and Enock Mwepu had cancelled Germany’s 1-0 halftime lead lead through Philipp Ochs.
But stoppage time goals from Suat Serder and Jonas Arweiler forced the match to be decided in extra-time.
Zambia now await the victor of Thursday afternoon’s last 16 tie between Italy and 2013 champions France in the quarterfinals on June 5 in Suwon.
