Edward Chilufya: Chambeshi's baby faced assassin

One of the most recognizable personalities in the Zambia U-20 Men’s Football Team owing to his predatory instincts in front of goal.

Nicknamed ‘Tiger’ for his work ethic it is perhaps his clinical touch that puts him ahead of the completion in the squad for a starting berth in Beston Chambeshi’side.

He scored four goals at the U-20 Africa Cup to help Zambia lift the crown on home soil. The youngest member of the Under-20 fold but has not let his age stand in the way of holding a place in the team.

A product of Mphande Youth Academy in Kasama Chilufya has a Cosafa U-20 medal and also and Africa Cup crown but is nowlooking to colour himself in World Cup glory when the world cup kicks off on May 20 in South Korea.

Already a subject of widespread interest from foreign and local clubs, the 17 year old is keeping his feet firmly on the ground and hopes his number 14 jersey makes a mark on the global stage.

Zambia opens its world campaign on May 21 with a Group C tie against Portugal at the Jeju World Cup stadium.
