Chipolopolo Thump Namibia to End AFCON Qualifiers on a High

The Chipolopolo boys turned on the style as they hammered Namibia 4-1 in a dead rubber Group K Africa Cup of Nations at qualifier at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

Namibia has qualified to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations despite losing 4-1 after Mozambique drew 1-all away to Guinea Bissau.

Orlando Pirates midfielder Augustine Mulenga fired home the Chipolopolo in 12th minute with thunderbolt that spurred the home team into life.

The two sides went into the second half with Zambia leading 1-0 and a rare goal from Donashano Malama doubled the lead in the 55th minute.

Zambia marched on with a second Mulenga goal that made it 3-0 before Namibia replied with an 89th minute goal through Peter Shalulile.

Second half substitute Lazarus Kambole finished off the brave Warriors with a long drive that beat the Maximillian Mbeva in the Namibian goal.


On Sunday the Zambia Under-23 host Malawi at the same venue in Olympic qualifier at 15:00 hours.

    Well done chipolopolo for showing your prowess over the brave warriors. This is a wake up call. whenever there are qualifiers at whichever level, please aim to win the first matches. The first loss to the mambas of Mozambique was the signal. then came a draw with namibia. there after a win against guinea Bissau. then a loss to Guinean. last but one a loss to Mozambique. so you can see that out of a possible 18 points, we managed only 7. next time we have qualifiers aim at winning the first games. otherwise you made us proud

    Where Was Chiangi When 7 Bloke Was Destroying The Team? Congrats Guys Though We’re Out Of The Race,

  34. Farmer

    You may celebrate but some of us won’t. The reason is simple. Zambia still has no stable defence. The goals missed by Namibia indicates this. In fact Namibia could have scored more had luck been on their side. Our defence was always in 6s and 7s when counter attacked. Look carefully at the position of the Zambian defender just before Namibia scored. The guy was busy ball watching. And for good measure the goal by Namibia that was disallowed was indeed not offside. There was a Zambian lying on the pitch who played him inside. Doesn’t matter if he wS injured or not. To do better forget the score… Let’s lol at our weakness otherwise Qatar 2022 will be just a dream. Defenders must remember ‘ to watch the man without the ball!!!

  35. Siku

    The next afcon and world cup qualifying games should all be played at the NHS not at the LMS. It seems we have more luck there.

  36. Fkarmer

    A word of advice to Cheyenne and his bench…. At no time should any defender crross the centre line. Reason is that they have no legs to recover in the event of a counter attack.

  37. Farmer

    CHiyengi…. I mean.

  38. mubiana

    The game was the second good game, that Zambia showed quality. The one they won against Guinea here in Zambia.
    Off all the six matches Zambia played in the qualifiers, they only showed seriousness in the two games we won.
    The other four were poor and they cost us qualification. The other point I would like to point out, is coordination in defense we still have a problems.
    So technical bench work on the lapses in defense. Also iam not soo secure, with Toaster Nsabata please Mweene has a few games in him we need, to scout or to identify capable pairs of hands, to save our goal posts.
    Maintain this team and next time please organization of quality friendly matches is needed.Not substandard.

  52. Kang'ombe

    Congratulations guys.
    But who qualified between Namibia and Mozambique?
