Boyd Musonda joins u-20 camp

U20 Coach Beston Chambeshi now has a full house in training after Zanaco midfielder Boyd Musonda and United States based Peter Mashikini teaming up with their friends in camp on Monday.

Chambeshi had to do without Musonda last week after Zanaco asked to hold on to him a little longer, but the midfielder who was on target on Sunday in the 6-0 demolition of Mufulira Wanderers joined with his teammates at Edwin Imboela Stadium.

Mashikini who is on the books of Grand View University in the United States of America joined in the training this morning as the technical bench assesses the 29 players in camp, with only no show Linos Makwaza of Power Dynamos juniors missing out.

The players went about on an intense work out without the ball before having a kick about across the pitch.

Musonda was having a loosening up workout as he had a league match on Sunday and was joined by Mashikini on the sidelines as the work out got intense.

Chambeshi told Fazfootball.com that the next few days would be critical for the players as he would be naming his final 21member squad that will fly to Spain prior to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017.

The final team is expected to be named on Wednesday with the team tentatively set to leave for Spain by the end of the week.

“This is the final week for us to assess each and every player in terms of fitness and alertness,” he said.

Zambia is in Group C alongside Portugal, Costa Rica and Iran.

The opening fixture will be on May 21 at the Jeju World Cup stadium against Portugal.

Zambia will head to Europe where they will have some warm up matches before going to South Korea.
