Zambia Girls Under-17 coach Kaluba Kangwa says women’s football is on the rise in the nation.
Kangwa’s comment comes in the wake of Zambia’s victory at the COSAFA U17 Girls Championship which was part of the 2020 Region 5 Games in Maseru, Lesotho.
The Zambian girls on Monday thrashed Botswana 4-0 to lift the COSAFA U17 Girls Championship.
In a post-match interview with the FAZ Media, Kaluba said the girls victory shows progress in the women’s game.
“You can see the growth of women’s football in Zambia. Now want to be getting medals and cups,” Kaluba said.
Zambia finished second at the same tournament last year.
“The victory is so special to the girls and so special to women’s football, and so special to the football association of Zambia, parents, teachers, the fans and everyone who supports women football,” he said.
“We would like to appreciate them (stakeholders) for this kind of support, without their support women’s football would not have been to this level.”[contact-form-7 404 "Not Found"]
