ROAD TO TOKYO 2020: IREENE LUNGU: The Heartbeat of the Copper Queens Attack
If Ireene Lungu plays well, chances are that the Copper Queens will play well. Another of the Costa Rica ‘gang’ that has morphed into a fully fledged footballer.
Ireene played a bit part for the Olympic qualifiers in the final lap against Cameroon. Known by different nicknames for her nimble-footedness, Ireene is gifted with a knack for free kicks and pin-point passes. Ireene ‘Xavi’ Lungu was part of the 2018 African Women Championship where she netted a delicious free kick in Zambia’s 5-0 mauling of Equatorial Guinea. Ireene will be one of the players that Mwape will be looking to unlock their opponents by pulling strings in the middle of the pack.
