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 public’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.
