Zambia face Tanzania for Cecafa bronze

Sports Zambia face Tanzania for Cecafa bronze

Zambia are set for Cecafa Cup Group B reunion on Thursday in Nairobi when they face Tanzania in a battle for bronze.

Tanzania lost 1-0 in their semifinal clash against hosts Kenya at Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi.

The game suffered a four hour delay after officials were forced to change venues from Machakos over 60 kilometers outside Nairobi to Nyayo.

This is after another waterlogged episode at the problematic stadium whose pitch has made headlines for all the wrong reasons despite enjoying the best crowd turnouts during the tournament.

Meanwhile, Clifton Miheso’s 5th minute goal handed Kenya their place in the final after he finished off a poor clearance by Tanzania’s star goalkeeper Ivo Mapunda.

Tanzania and Zambia drew 1-1 in their opening Group C at the Cecafa Cup on November 28 at Machakos.

Kenya on the other hand will face Sudan in the final after the curtain-raiser third and fourth place playoff at Nyayo.


    • You seem to be a die hard Chipolopolo fan. My friend, forget about Zambian football about at the moment. Wait untill Kalu and his team vacate footaball house. These guys mean no good. Their main interest is eat. With Kalu at the helm of FAZ i bet you it will take a miracle for Zambia to regain its lost glory. Chipolopolo is finished!

    • Ba JJ ne mwe! take a deep breath and relax! Sudan were more determined and at the end of the day they took the game and won to go to the finals. Like BR Mumba Sr, we will be there to support Chipolopolo both in good times and bad because they carry the flag of mother Zambia! When we are not supporting Zambia we support all African countries at the World Cup because we identify with them.

      Its not a secret that the national team has lost strength since 2012, but prior to the same it was a building process. We will support Kalu and team and have confidence that football will improve. If there is one thing that history will teach you in football is that, Never write Chipolopolo off! When they bounce back they are unstoppable. For now all we can say is good luck Chipolopolo!

  1. @Thabo you are a professional soccer analyst. A coach will have nothing to do with players that have lost strength in a match that went to 90 minutes plus. Our boys were dead tired and drained. you could see the likes of Munthali failing to chase a dead ball. more could be said but they should be strong (them players)for extra time. that’s what has failed great teams, extra run.
