Amajita, Zambia Share Spoils in Friendly

The Zambia Uunder-20 national team has drawn 3-all with South Africa in an international friendly played at Nkoloma Stadum.

Zambia went ahead in the 19th minute through Israel based Kings Kangwa but South Africa cancelled out the lead in the 40th minute through Lyle Foster ensuring that the two sides went for the break tied 1-all.

Coach Charles Bwale introduced Martin Njobvu for Obinno Chisala after the break and the Nchanga Rangers striker hit the back of the net five minutes later but South Africa levelled matters a minute later through Wiseman Meyuwa.

The Amajita then went ahead through Promise Mkhuma but Francesco Mwepu restored parity in the 75th minute.

Zambia is preparing for the Niger 2019 Africa Cup of Nations final qualifying round against Burundi on Saturday.

The Amajita host Malawi in the same stage and were using the friendly to gauge their strength.

Zambia are the reigning champions for the U20 Africa Cup of Nations

    I was disappointed with the defense sure the wining game drawing and if we go like that on Saturday we will loose. Coach work hard we are using money when entering the gate not papers.

    Ba Faz find the trainer for U 20 this kind of tikitaka of management we don’t want

      I think chambishi z the best man it’s only that faz management doesn’t know wat to do naba Kalu baliko bwino

  14. Mimbulu

    Fire Charles Bwale too much favouritism in team selection.
    Have you that Numba has (refused) to join the under 20 team?
    Can someone at FAZ find out the reason why?

  15. Benny

    Imwe ba Faz why changing coaches so rapidly???? bring back Heston chambeshi even if he fails l’ll know it’s only a mistake. Chambeshi knows the best players Charles Beale must go back 2 girls’ football

    Bola yamu Zambia kuwayawaya fye, too much corruption muzed, umushelepo fye umwabula corruption nimuma toilets.
