[Al Jazeera] Last month, I sat down with Monica, a 30-year-old polio survivor in Bambari, a war-torn town in the Central African Republic. She was living in a displacement camp after intense fighting forced her to flee the town of Bakala, 110 kilometres away. "I went into the house to hide," she said, describing the Bakala violence. "My husband told me to stay there and he left with the kids to hide outside. They were chased into the bush and killed."

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.
