Road to Korea 2017: Moses Nyondo: the emerging ‘Mr Reliable’

The other half of the Zambian central defence, the Nkana Football Club defender is one of those players that have become regular fixtures in the Zambian backline.

Nyondo made his way into Beston Chambeshi’s side during the Cosafa U-20 tournament in December, 2016 that Zambia won and remained part of the starting XI during the Total U-20 Africa Cup of Nations.

Consistency is his trademark and with the welcome tendency of picking himself once the chips are down.

With the country looking to making a mark at the FIFA U-20 Korea Republic 2017, Nyondo could be one of the stars to provide cover for that dream at the back.

Nyondo looks up to Real Madrid defender Sergio Ramos as his model defender and is a fan of Barcelona. Starring for the Nkana juniors Nyondo hopes the FIFA U-20 Korea Republic 2017 opens doors not only outside the continent but also within his confines at Nkana Stadium.

Zambia is in Group C alongside Portugal, Costa Rica and Iran and will be based on the Island of Jeju.

The opening fixture will be against Portugal on May 21, 2017 at the 29, 346 capacity Jeju World Cup stadium with the second match staged three days later against Iran before concluding their group matches with a tie against Costa Rica at Cheonan Sports Complex on May 29, 2017.
