ZAMBIA’S Under-15 national team yesterday returned from Croatia after competing in the eight-team “Zlatko Markovic” Invitational Tournament.

And FAZ general Secretary who met the team expressed delight that the boys were back safe and that he was looking to receiving the other two (players) plus the doctor getting back very soon as well.
Zambia finished fourth but could however not play their third and fourth play-off against Qatar as two Zambian players tested positive to the coronavirus.
The two players have since been isolated and remained behind with a team doctor and would only fly back once Covid-19 procedural guidelines were met.
And Team coach Chisi Mbewe was full of praise for his squad and said there was so much skill from the players which needed to continue to be supported.
“We managed to scoop the top scorer’s award. I wish we had played all the games for us to scoop a lot of awards. We have seen so much skill from these young boys which we really need to work on and continue supporting so that when they grow up, they don’t depart from what we are teaching them at this age,” Mbewe said.
“I am happy because the boys had exposure. It was a motivational factor to the young boys. The only thing I can say is that we really need to continue supporting these young boys because these are the future national team players.”
Kashala said Zambia would again participate at the tournament next year having already been invited.
