Alberico Evani, the Italy under-20 coach, watched from the sidelines as the Kalusha Bwalya-led Zambia tormented his side at the Seoul Olympics in 1988. He was injured. So, he sat out of that match. Twenty-nine years later, he will be on the technical bench as coach. His aim is to avenge the 1988 massacre when Italy and Zambia meet in the 2017 FIFA under-20 World Cup in Suwon. And he comes up against a member of that Zambian side — Beston ‘Quicksilver’ Chambeshi. In an interview, Evani says he is looking forward to Monday’s quarterfinal and hopes to revenge. “We want to revenge. It is possible to revenge, but it will not be easy,†he says admitting it will be a tight affair. “The match will be a 50/50 affair and the better team will win.†Evani says Zambia is no walkover. “They help each other, they work together so it is difficult to beat a team like that,†Evani is wary of the passing game Chambeshi’s lads are enjoying. “The Zambian forwards are very fast…the two strikers are very good and complete,†he said. Evani is not taking chances and will hope overcoming France and South Africa has given his team enough impetus to beat a Zambia that has been in top form. The match will kick off at 17:00 hours local time (10:00 hours Zambian time). The post Italy Coach Goes For Seoul ’88 Revenge appeared first on Zambia Reports.

Opposition leader Hakainde Hichilema will never forget the celebration of his 55th birthday. He would have celebrated it in jail while facing treason charges. Today, Hichilema will be busy receiving visitors at Lusaka Central Prison. His party, UPND, has laid out a schedule to celebrate the five time presidential candidate’s 55th birthday. Hichilema’s wife and children have put out an emotional piece wishing they could have celebrated an important day with their breadwinner. BELOW IS THE MESSAGE 55 DAYS IN PRISON, HAPPY 55TH BIRTHDAY MR HAKAINDE HICHILEMA, MY HUSBAND – MUTINTA HICHILEMA. 4th June, 2017. _________________________ Fellow country men and women, The Hichilema family hereby invite you in wishing the UPND President, Mr Hakainde Hichilema, a happy 55th birthday which falls today, Sunday, 4th June, 2017. In the past, we have always celebrated Mr. Hichilema’s birthday at our residence while sharing light moments as well as discussing how he intends to provide equal opportunities for all when he forms government. However, it is not the same this time around, as Mr. Hichilema today marked 55 days in prison and also by God’s grace reached 55 years old. As always, we once again call on the country to solidly stand with Mr. Hichilema by wishing him a happy birthday. As family, just like most of you out there, we would have loved to be with him at our residence and celebrate his birthday as we have always done especially on his vision of creating opportunities for all, uniting our country beyond its current disrepair, but this is not the case this time around as Mr. Hichilema has marked his 55th birthday on his 55th day in prison. Therefore, wherever you maybe, we call on you to join us in wishing Mr Hichilema, a son of this land a happy 55th birthday. We count each day given to Mr. Hichilema as a blessing from the Almighty, God. Once more as the Hichilema family and indeed on my own behalf, we say happy birthday my husband, happy birthday Father and may God bless him. May God bless you all, And God bless our country. MRS MUTINTA HICHILEMA AND CHILDREN. Signed. The post Hichilema Celebrating 55th Birthday In Jail appeared first on Zambia Reports.
