Zambia coach Honour Janza has given his full blessings to Lubambo Musonda featuring at the 2015 African Youth Championship in Senegal.
The 20-year-old midfielder of Armenia club Ulisses FC is the only high-profile senior player in the Senegal-bound team that he also captained in the 2015 African Youth Championship qualifiers.
“It goes to show you how much ready he is to take up big challenges in his football career,” Janza said.
Lubambo, who made his Africa Cup debut in January in Equatorial Guinea where he played two games, is expected to join the Zambia Under-20 team this week before departure for Dakar.
The Zambia Under-20 team is in Group B with Ghana, South Africa and Mali at the Senegal tournament that will run from March 8-22.
Zambia will kick off their campaign on March 9 against Mali.
