Chambeshi upbeat ahaed of Germany clash

U20 Coach Beston Chambeshi has played down the Zambia versus Germany knockout stage being a grudge match saying his team will just prepare for a good contest.

Speaking ahead of Wednesday’s second round clash against Germany Chambeshi said the match will be a tussle of a new generation of players from two football nations.

Chambeshi told Fazfootball.com that Zambia will just focus on its game.

“It is nice for us to meet Germany after that encounter in 1986. But It is a different ball game,” he said.

“These are new boys who have come on the scene that time they had Klinsman but now it is a different scenario.”

He added: “In football there is no revenge, all we have to do is to take Germany with a very serious approach. We have to do our best.”

The 1988 Olympic Games quarterfinal match that saw a Jurgen Klinsman inspired Germany beat Zambia 4-0 has come into frame as part of the pre-match discourse among soccer enthusiasts.

Chambeshi is delighted to have skipper Solomon Sakala back for selection after having been suspended for the final Group C match against Costa Rica.

The man fondly referred to Quicksilver said his side was ready to knock out Germany.

On their way to setting up date with Zambia Germany lost 2-0 to Venezuela and drew 0-all with Mexico and edged Vanuatu 3-2.

The match kicks off at 13:00 hours Zambian time.
