Austria-based forward Patson Daka says Iran will have to dance to Zambia’s tune in today’s FIFA Under-20 World Cup Group C clash. Daka, the hardworking striker who lasted only 42 minutes and was withdrawn due to injury, says he is in good shape to help inspire junior Chipolopolo to victory. He is happy to regain his shape after the team medical personnel announced he was in pole position for selection. Daka suffered a laceration on the lower lip in Zambia’s 2–1 win over Portugal. “We will not put much concentration to the way they [Iran] play, we have to play our game; they have to dance to our tune. That’s the way we can win the game, not looking at how they are playing,†he said after Tuesday’s training session. Daka added that the team was in high spirit and looking forward to win today to confirm their place in the round of 16. “My expectation is to get the best for the team. As you know that this game is very important to us, it’s more like the last game of the tournament because if we win, we are going to the second round which is our aim,†he said. Zambia will play Iran at 17:00 hours local time (10 hours in Zambia). Source: bolazambia The post Patson Daka Wants Iran To Dance “Kalindula” appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Germany-based ex-international Andrew Sinkala has sent a message motivating Zambia’s Under-20 national team ahead of today’s Group C match against Iran at the FIFA World Cup in Jeju, South Korea. Sinkala, a member of Zambia’s first team to qualify to any FIFA World Cup in 1999, says Beston Chambeshi’s team had the chance to reach the final. Featuring on Q-TV’s SoccerChat sports show, Sinkala urged the team to continue carrying the Zambian flag high. “You are not alone, People in Zambia, people in Europe; here in Germany, everywhere they are talking about you. You are the talk of the town,†he said. “My message to you is to motivate you guys. I am saying this to you because I know; I also played that World Cup.†Sinkala, who was one of Zambia’s best midfielders the last 20 years, played for Bayern Munich and FC Koln among other teams. “My message to you is; from now, I say don’t use these word ‘we have to’. I say so because you’ll be putting yourselves under pressure. From today, ‘tell your room-mate, your friend, that ‘we can do it’. Sinkala reminded the lads that only team work will win them titles. “You can only do it if you work as a team. I am saying so because only that will help you to win this World Cup,†he added. Sinkala said the players should not feel under pressure, but enjoy every moment they are together in South Korea. “Don’t force yourself, don’t say we have to, you are not there to kill yourself. You are there to enjoy, play football. Sinkala said the Zambian team should know the country was rallying them to glory. “I saw you play, and I believe in you and I know you can do it. We are here praying for you. We will watch all the games for you. Good job, keep on working, show the world that we can do it,†he added. Sinkala congratulated the technical bench comprising Chambeshi and Bilton Musonda for inspiring the team to a 2–1 win over Portugal. Victory in the opening match put Zambia’s chance of a second round berth in good shape.
