Zambia coach Beston Chambeshi is expected to make at least two changes to his traditional starting line as the Junior Chipolopolo boys face Costa Rica in the concluding Group C match. Chambeshi is targeting a 100 percent group stage record at the on-going FIFA Under-20 World Cup in South Korea. Skipper Solomon Sakala is suspended after collecting two yellow cards giving the technical bench some homework to find replacements. Zambia is guaranteed of a second round place but need at least a draw to confirm their top place, or at worst hope for Portugal to beat Iran in the other Group C match today. Chambeshi’s lads won both their matches in Group C against Portugal (2–1) and Iran (4–2). In Sakala’s place, Chambeshi has enough options on the bench with Benson Chali, Edward Tembo or Muchindu Muchindu expected to partner Moses Nyondo in central defence. There is a possibility of a slight change upfront with Conlyde Luchanga expected to be relegated to the bench as Chambeshi seeks to strengthen the midfield. The formidable partnership of strikers Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala will lead the attack with deputy captain Enock Mwepu, Emmanuel Banda and Boyd Musonda expected to form the heart of the midfield that will be completed by Edward Chilufya. Kickoff is at 17:00 hours local time (10:00 hours Zambian time).
