With less than 10 days to go before the kick off, Senong said his Amajita side has what it takes to take Africa by storm.
Amajita are in Group B, alongside Senegal, Cameroon and Sudan. They play their games in Ndola while Group A whose games will take place in Lusaka, consists of tournament hosts Zambia, Egypt, Mali and Guinea. Four top teams from the tournament will automatically qualify for the 2017 FIFA U20 World Cup which will take place in South Korea from 20 May – 11 June 2017.
“They (players) understand what is expected of them in the tournament and we have set objectives for this team. We are happy that the players have experience with some coming from the U17 national set up, some from the COSAFA Cup played last year and others from the U23 set up; therefore we are confident going into the tournament,” said Senong.
