Zambia this afternoon defeated 2010 FIFA World Cup finalists North Korea 4-1 in an international friendly match played at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

The hosts cruised to victory courtesy of a James Chamanga hat-trick in the two sides first-ever international meeting.

Zambia led 2-0 into the break after shrugging off an spell by North Korea in the opening 10 minutes of the match.

Chamanga scored the first of his two goals 10th and 13th minutes thanks to assists from Rainford Kalaba and Sabstian Mwansa respectively before completing his hat-trick in the 70th minute.

North Korea found their lone goal of the match via a penalty in the 86th that was converted by midfielder Mun In Guk.

Striker Felix Sunzu, who replaced Chamanga a minute after the latter scored his third goal, added zambia’s fourth goal deep into time-added-on of the 90 minutes.

  2. I am sure RB and great Galu have conned us again, how sure are we those guys were the the first choice North Korea, i have watchd NK during its qualifiers and there is no way Zambia could have given them such a bashing!!
    Lets face it the game wasn’t played on a Fifa sanctioned day fro world friendlies meaning top quality player plying their trade at top teams were not able to make it, what a sham!!!
