Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) technical director, Lyson Zulu has advised the Zambia U-17 national team to take each game as it comes at the ongoing COSAFA men's U-17 Championships.
Zulu was also quick to heap praise on the youngsters as the most disciplined side he has ever come across. He is confident that the team has what it takes to bring glory to the country.
"Since we landed two days ago I have seen the team come together better. The discipline the boys have shown is exceptional. I have never seen a more disciplined side, They are working together as a team," he said.
" My encouragement to them is to take each game as it comes. Tomorrow, it's a crucial game against Eswatini and it being the first game it determines how far the team will go in this tournament."
"I just want to remind the boys how far they have come from provincial trials to national trials and finally here as the cream de la dream which means they have what it takes to actually bring glory to the country. I want them to remain focused and remember whey they are here," he added.
Zambia will open her campaign with a match against Eswatini on Saturday, 12th October 2019 before facing regional heavyweight rivals South Africa two days later and hosts Malawi in their final game on October 16.
