Zambia’s attacking genius Fashion Sakala says the 4–2 comeback against Iran was an amazing way to win a match. Sakala was in scintillating form in Zambia’s second half revival scoring a goal that curved the path to victory over Iran in a Group C match at the 2017 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Jeju, Korea. Zambia top Group C with a game to spare, thanks to a 1-all draw between Costa Rica and Portugal. “As I always say that all what I need is to add value to the team. I really thank God for giving me a goal, that was amazing,†an elated Sakala said in an interview, adding “I really thank my teammates for the team work. I really feel good because that [comeback] was nice.†The Russia-based striker said when Zambia was down 2–0 after 49 minutes, he still believed the team had a good chance of coming back in the game. In fashionable style, Sakala was first to reduce the arrears in the 54th minute when he unleashed a strong cracker with his right to beat the Iranian goalie Nima Mirzazad. “I knew that I will score and try and give my team a win. I believed and trusted in my teammates and that’s the reason we kept fighting,†the Spartak Moscow star said. Fashion admitted he was tightly marked, but his plan to regularly switch positions with Edward Chilufya and going far wide helped create space for him to maneuver. “I think I can say these guys planned about me. They were marking me about two or three guys. That’s the reason why I was making two or three moves to go to the left or the right to find space. “It was something difficult for me, but I think I tried my best and I think this game I have done well than the last game we played,†he added. Sakala believes a team that shows incredible character as the Zambia Under-20 displayed at a big stage like the World Cup stands a good chance of winning the competition. He is hoping Zambia can become only the second African country to hoist the 40-year-old FIFA competition after Ghana who won the 2009 edition hosted by Egypt. “We will reach the final, I am sure,†he said. “You know it’s something difficult for a team when you are down like we were down 2–0 and to come back with 4 goals in the second half.†Fashion says while he did not want to make promises, the Zambian team was focused on going as far as they could at this year’s competition. “I think this [performance] is something that should give me courage and confidence that our team is capable of winning this tournament, but I won’t promise anything. I believe in God; God will do the rest,†he said. Zambia wrapped up Wednesday night with a strong showing as goals rained courtesy of Sakala, Enock Mwepu [59], Emmanuel Banda [65] and substitute Patson Daka [71]. Coach Beston Chambeshi’s lads top Group C with a match to spare and will return to Jeju for their round of 16 match on Wednesday May 31. The Zambian team shifted based to Cheonan yesterday morning to fulfill their concluding Group C match against Costa Rica who are playing for second place finish, or the four available places for best losers.
