Speaking in an interview with the ZamFoot Crew before departure for Morocco this afternoon, Coach Chilufya said that the technical bench has worked on all the aspects of the game and they have inculcated a winning mentality in the boys though the main objective remains to develop them.
“We have been in camp for a long time now, we have touched all aspects of the game, and the pre-season games will even help us to be 100% ready,” Chilufya said.
“As much as we want to inculcate a winning mentality in the boys, we should not forget that the main objective is to develop them with a winning,” he added
Coach Chilufya also reiterated his earlier sentiments that his boys are going to the tournament to compete and to be the best.
“Our ambition is to go there and compete to be the best, so this tournament will give us a good platform for our boys to showcase their talents ahead of the upcoming assignments,” he said.
The Young Chipolopolo are in Group A alongside the hosts Morocco, Ivory Coast, and Uganda for the youth tournament which will run from 13-21 March 2021.
