Zambia begin Olympic Adventure against Netherlands

Zambia Women’s National Team will today battle Netherlands at the Miyagi Stadium in the Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Tokyo 2020 opening Group F fixture.

Skipper Barbara Banda has since urged her teammates to be at their best and go for three points.

Speaking at a pre-match conference, Banda said the team was not under pressure but was polishing their gems for Wednesday’s encounter.

“It has not been easy but we are here for a purpose, the team is very determined and everyone is looking forward to the first game which is very important,” Banda said.

She noted that the FAZ Women’s Super League has improved following the Copper Queens qualification to the Olympics, and the amazing feeling and impact it had brought to the country was motivating to the players.

“We have a number of experienced and confident players who are able to play their game and as our coach has said, if we play according to the plan then everything is possible,” She adds.

Debutants Zambia face Netherlands at Miyagi stadium at 13:00hours CAT and the match will be live on Supersport’s La Liga/Olympic Channel 3.
