Zambia advanced to the 2013 Cecafa Cup quarterfinals after a 4-0 win over Somalia in Nakuru today.
Zambia finished top of Group B on seven points, level with Tanzana who finished second on goal difference after a 1-0 win over Burundi in the early kickoff at the same venue.
Nchanga Rangers striker Bornwell Mwape and Nkana forward Festus Mbewe scored a brace each to hand Patrice Beaumelle his second successive win.
Mwape put Zambia ahead in the 2nd minute before Mbewe added the second two minutes later to see Zambia take a 2-0 lead into the break.
The Nchanga striker completed his brace in the 5th minute after some more awful goalkeeping by Somalia’s goalkeeper Mohamed Sharif.
Sharif gifted Zambia another poor clearance in the 70th minute that fell into Mbewe’s path to slot in with ease the fourth and final goal.
Mbewe took his tournament tally to three goals after scoring his first in the 1-0 win over Burundi on Sunday.
Zambia return to the pitch this Sunday in Mombasa where they await one of the best two third place side in the quarterfinals between Zanzibar or Rwanda after the latter’s final Group C match against Eritrea on Thursday.
