Zambia Scrape Through to Cosafa Semis

Lazarous Kambole of Zambia challenged by Nasr Eldin Omer Ahmed of Sudan during the 2018 CHAN quarter finals football game between Zambia and Sudan at the Grand stade Marrakech in Marrakech, Morocco on 27 January 2017 ยฉSamuel Shivambu/BackpagePix

The Zambia national team needed post-match penalties to beat Namibia and qualify to the semi-finals of the 2018 Cosafa Castle Cup.

Both teams settled for a barren draw in regulation time making it their second consecutive draw consecutively after the 1-1 result at the CHAN.

The two teams are due for another encounter in September in the race for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

Beston Chambeshi was thrown in the deep end of the pool after Wedson Nyirenda resigned after having lost the publicโ€™s confidence.

Zambia converted their spot kicks through Collins Sikombe, Jack Chirwa, Toaster Nsabata and Clatous Chama while Lazarous Kambole had his kick coming off the post.

Zambia will now play the winner between South Africa and Madagascar in the semi finals.

    Kuwayawayafye Zambia

  21. Enos Kalulu

    Start with Sate Sate next time he is the only striker l see in the team. Wila tulwalika ama BP Beston. Elyo try to make your decisions bwangu. Sate didn’t have enough time to make an impact. I am still behind the team. Next, SA, here we come.

  22. Bruno mars the moonshine jungle

    Our team yabaa Kuwayawaya fye

  23. Paba

    The Team played as one though we didn’t have that killer instinct, only Kampamba the midfielder from Power Dynamos looked very hungry for Goals hence could try his best to shoot from afar and almost got a goal. Kambole is a good player but must be advised to at least try to shoot from afar and not chabe mu Box.
    However, it was a nice and interesting game to watch.
    GO ZAMBIA GO, mpaka ku mapeto.

  24. mwalusaka

    I think chembeshi he deserves a sit as a Zambian coach all we need z 2 support him .thanx man 4 de good start n we wish u a gud prosperous in ur coaching as u continue as a Zambian coach
