In the wake of their 1-0 win over Guinea in the 2017 CAF Africa of Cup of Nations on Saturday, Zambian U20 coach Beston Chambeshi says he is a happy man.
After a goalless first half, it was 'Man-of-the-Match' Patson Daka who scored the only goal of the game in the 48th minute.
Chambeshi said he was happy with the victory and singled out goalkeeper Mangani Banda for an outstanding performance.

“It wasn’t easy playing Guinea because their tactical approach was good. Overall I am happy that my boys applied themselves well, they looked sharp and especially our goalkeeper our made two important saves,” said Chambeshi.
“In our collective play we were able to show that we have a strong team.
“It is a sweet victory and I am happy that we have started on a good note. We will now focus on our next match.”
The hosts are leading Group A with three points from their win and will be hoping to make it two wins in a row when they face Mali (who drew 0-0 against Egypt) in their second Group A match on Wednesday in Lusaka.
