The 2018 Cosafa U-20 tournament roars into life this morning when Group C opponents, Lesotho and Angola, clash in the first match before the host country Zambia close the day with a date against Malawi at 3 pm.
The hosts were supposed to play guest nation DRC in their first encounter, but a late change was made after the Central Africans informed that they would only arrive in Zambia on Monday.
Zimbabwe who are in the same group with Lesotho and Angola will start their campaign on Monday against Botswana at 12 pm. A Group B clash between South Africa and Mauritius will follow at 3 pm.
The Young Warriors return to action on Wednesday to play Lesotho in their second Group C match before they face Angola on December 9 in the final group stage encounter.
Kwese Sports will broadcast the games live.
