Zambia Defeat Algeria 3-1 In World Cup Qualifier

Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda this afternoon inspired 10-man Chipolopolo to a first World Cup win beating Algeria 3-1 in a Group B fixture played at Heroes stadium in Lusaka.

It is the first time Zambia has defeated Algeria in a World Cup qualifier. The win is also the first in three matches for Zambia.

Brian Mwila scored a brace with Mwepu sealing the victory in the final stages of the match that saw winger Fashion Sakala sent off for a second yellow.

Algeria’s Ibrahimi had earlier reduced the scoreline with a powerful drive that beat goalie Kennedy Mweene.

  36. commando

    Congratulations to all zambias for the win.My personal observation is that our defence was panicking so much,we expected so much from Fasion Sakala but was also under pressure to perform to our expectation.After Sakala was sent off the coach made some tactical changes especially the introduction of Mwepu brought life in mid field which was gasping for breathe.Team effort
    made our team win.Ba fasion needs to be encouraged so that he can do better.

  37. James

    Am impressed with these guys, looking forward to the next game Algeria Go Zambia Go

  38. Richard

    Well done lads go & do likewise at their own backyard

    job wel done wada but the passes were poor work on the left defender kapumbu, the introduction of mwepe brought life.

  89. Banito Mazalini

    This team can only get better, better and better. I foresee a bright future and a couple of trophies in the near future.

  90. Joseph chongwe

    Well done boys and to coach he needs to strengthen the middlefeld as well as the left back in order to carry the results in Algeria, To f sakala i think he has lean one or two things for what happened to him.

  91. gotama

    Zambia will pull the biggest footballing surprise should they win.Nigeria will have to implode for this chance

  92. picks pie d
