FORMER national team coach Herve Renard has congratulated the under-20 side for qualifying for the FIFA South Korea World Cup and that he will travel to Lusaka to cheer the boys to victory in the continental showpiece.
Renard said in an interview yesterday that the junior Chipolopolo have done Zambia proud.
He said he will travel to Lusaka next week to support the under-20 national team in the remaining matches of the Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations.
“I will be in Lusaka next week to support them [under-20],” said Renard, who is Morocco national team coach.
Zambia massacred Mali 6-1 on Wednesday night to qualify for the semi-finals with a game remaining in the group stage.
The junior Chipolopolo have six points, four better than second-placed Egypt. Guinea and Mali have a point apiece but the former have a better goal aggregate.
Zambia face Egypt in Lusaka today while Guinea take on Mali in Ndola. Zambia will face Group B runners-up in the semi-finals next Wednesday in Lusaka.
Senegal are leading Group B with four points, South Africa and Cameroon have three points apiece but the former have a healthier goal aggregate. Sudan are bottom with a point.
Senegal tackle Cameroon tomorrow in Ndola while South Africa entertain Sudan at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
