President Edgar Chagwa Lungu Congratulates Young Zambians

My heartfelt congratulations to the young Chipolopolo team for their victory in the Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations,
AFCON.

You have made the country proud by retaining Zambia’s lost glory in football which the Zambian soccer fans and the general public have been yearning for in a long time after the 2012 Gabon AFCON Victory by the senior team! As patron of the Football Association of Zambia, I am extremely happy and we give glory to God for this victory. On behalf of Government and the people of the Republic of Zambia, l wish to extend hearty congratulations to Mr. Andrew Kamanga, the President of FAZ and his entire executive, the Ministry of Youth and Sport including other stakeholders for working hard to organise a successful tournament.

Allow me to extend my gratitude to the visiting teams for having participated in the Under-20 AFCON and I wish them well in future tournaments. To the soccer fans, l urge you to continue rallying behind the young players for more goals to be recorded. To the young Chipolopolo, you have a great future in football. I urge you to continue working extremely hard, be disciplined and ensure team spirit for you to perform even better in other tournaments. God bless the Republic of Zambia. Those were the words of the President of Zambia who was there to cheer his wards to victory throughout the tournament.
