Zambia U/17 coach George Chilufya says he is happy with the healthy competition in camp ahead of the junior Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Morocco.
Zambia qualified for the tournament after finishing as runners-up to South Africa at the 2020 U17 COSAFA Championship.
“We had called I think 41 players now we have reduced the numbers to 28, so far so good I think everyone is doing their best, the competition is there and there are all looking forward to making the team,” said Chilufya.
“The core of the team is there, the one we had last year at the COSAFA tournament now we have added a good number of the under 15s that went to Croatia last time we had 5 and now we have about 9 and they are competing as I said everyone is doing their best and I’m sure they have pushed the team that qualified us to the tournament,” he added.
The draw for the 2021 Total Africa Cup of Nations U17 final competition will be conducted on Wednesday, 24 February.
