Zambia Douse Flames to Reach Cosafa Semis

Zambia came from 2-0 down to beat Malawi 4-2 on post-match spot-kicks at the on-going Cosafa Cup in Durban.

The flames of Malawi opened the score in the second minute through a Garbadinho Mhango effort that caught the Zambian defence flat-footed and also exposed the novice in goalkeeper Emmanuel Mwange.

The flames doubled their lead in the 50th minute through a Gerald Phiri penalty after Benson Sakala hacked down Mhango in the box.

Zambia picked themselves up with Austin Muwowo slotting home from outside the box with second half substitute Emmanuel Chabula benefitting from a selfless Tapson Kaseba pass in the 89th minute to level matters.

In the post-match spot-kicks Malawi crumbled with two of their palyers sending their efforts over the bar while Zambia netted through Bruce Musakanya, Mwila Phiri, Adrian Chama and Chabula,

Zambia will now face Zimbabwe on Wednesday in a potentially mouth-watering clash.

Zimbabwe is using its full strength team that is preparing for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

  14. Mr. BJ

    To beat Zim, our team needs to do wonders. Remember we av failed twice to grab the cosafa cup in the more recent time. A team coming from behind to win a game is something. That was no mean achievement. Congrats boys. We are hopeful this time, the cup will come our way. Ndeloleshafye!!!

  15. mwale zindikilani

    why do we always want to experiment when other countries take it very serious and bring professionals to do the job , expect to be embarrassed again by Zim zim.think twice coach and FAZ do something.

  16. Mr. K

    There is no football now in zambia that we can be proud of Zambian football is finished under Kananga fsz must call for an emergency convention to elect a new president now

  47. Amigo

    This is not a team… Worse still we have a bench that do not know what to do. The defence loses shape each time it is under pressure. Malawi was the better team.. Watch Zimbabwe rip us apart!!!!

  48. Samuel Ngosa

    Only problm we hav in is xperimenting of players wen its a competition,owez new playerz wu dontav experience,corrupt owez

  49. derrick musonda
