Kalu urges Shipolopolo to beat Tanzania tomorrow


Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya has urged the Zambia Under Twenty Women national soccer team to beat Tanzania in tomorrow’s match.

Bwalya implored the women to believe in themselves and go all the way in the qualifying series of the world cup championship.

He further urged the women to endeavour to reach another milestone in their career in a similar manner when they qualified to the Under Seventeen FIFA World Cup in Costa Rica , last year.

Most of the players in U20 squad were part of the historical Under Seventeen team that made Zambia’s maiden appearance at the FIFA World Cup last year.

According to statement issued to ZANIS Sports in Lusaka today by FAZ communications officer Nkweto Tembwe, Bwalya said this when he visited the women during training at Nkoloma Stadium this afternoon.

The Junior Shepolopolo tomorrow take on Tanzania in the second leg second round of the 2016 Papua New Guinea FIFA World Cup qualifier match at Nkoloma stadium in Lusaka at 15 : 00 hours.

The Oswald Mutapa coached squad humiliated Tanzania 4 nil in the second round first leg of the Papua New Guinea U20 World Cup qualifier match played at Azam Sports Complex in Dar es Salaam a fortnight ago.

But Coach Osward Mutapa has told @fazfootball.com. in Lusaka today that the first leg result has passed and tomorrow’s game will be a different one.

Meanwhile, FAZ has scrapped off gate charges for tomorrow’s Papua New Guinea FIFA Women World cup qualifier match between Zambia and Tanzania.

FAZ Communications officer Nkweto Tembwe said the move is in line with the Association’s resolve to popularise women football in the country.
