Chambeshi unveils final squad for Fifa World Cup

U20 Men’s Football Team Coach Beston Chambeshi has named his final squad for the FIFA U-20 World Cup Korea Republic 2017.

Chambeshi has named five foreign based players in his squad that will do duty at the world cup.

UEFA U-21 winner Patson Daka (FC Liefering) will lead the legion of foreign based players with Spartak Moscow signee Fashion Sakala, Emmanuel Banda of Esmoritz in Portugal, Ngosa Sunzu (Hapoel Rana’ana) and Kenneth Kalunga (IFS) completing the list of foreign based players.

The technical bench has maintained the bulk of the players that won the Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations with only Nkana’s Boston Muchindu, and Kafue Celtic’s Musonda Siame being the only inclusions outside the all conquering side.

The opening match for Zambia is on May 21 at the Jeju World Cup Stadium against Portugal.
