Midfielder Martin Daka made it 2-0 four minutes after the hour-mark.

Mwana defender Chipo Tsodzo turned the ball into his own net not long after that on 67 minutes to see Zanaco complete a double over Zimbabwean opposition in a space of 24 hours.

On Saturday, Zanaco crushed Zimbabwean top-flight champions Highlanders 4-0 at the same venue in another international club friendly.

    I wish to respond to the article in your web,about one Zambian football player playing in Namibia named Chilufya William and that you are disappointed that I never reccommended him to the Under 23 team. Please get your facts right before you go on to condem Innocent people.

Please verify some of these issue be you condem people for what is not true. I have tried my best to mention to the techical staff but to no avial. My # is +264 812001236.
