Croatia U15 Squad Dominates Chilufya’s U17 Region 5 Games
Zambia Under-17 coach George Chilufya has named a 35-member provisional squad for the Region 5 Games Maseru 2020 to run from November 30-December 9.
Chilufya has recalled seven players from last year’s group that picked silver at the regional championship in South Africa. Leading the pack is last year’s joint top scorer Joseph Sabobo Banda, best goalkeeper Eric Makungu and enterprising midfielder Frank Chileshe.
More familiar faces can be seen in the team with the majority of players graduating from the Zambia Under-15 team that competed at the second edition of the “Vlatko Markovic” Eight-Nation International Tournament, in Croatia last year.
Chilufya has roped in some of the lads from the squad that qualified for the Morocco 2021 U17 Africa Cup of Nations that was cancelled five days before kick-off.
The Young Chipolopolo who are in Group C alongside Malawi and Seychelles will open their campaign against 1 December before taking on Seychelles three days later.
