Zambia has been knocked out of the 2014 FIFA U17 World Cup in Costa Rica after losing to Venezuela 4-0 in their second Group A match in San Jose on Wednesday morning.

The Shepolopolo missed a number of chances in the first half through Grace Chanda and Ireen Lungu before they were punished by Venezuela.

Zambia had the earliest clear-cut chance in the match after just seven minutes as Chanda found herself inside the box but directed her shot at the keeper.

Venezuela took a 14th minute lead through Deyna Castellanos who beat Zambia keeper Hezel Nali with a low shot from inside the box.

The South Americans went to the half time break leading 1-0 before a Gabriela Garcia second half hattrick condemned Zambia to their second defeat after Sunday’s 2-0 loss to Italy in their opening match.

Garcia inked her hattrick with goals in the 47th, 59th and 86th minutes.

The Albert Kachinga side is now waiting to play their last group match against Costa Rica on Saturday before heading back home.

  2. They accounted for themselves well except the missing of chances and slow paced defending. Had Zambia scored first, the match would have been in our favor.
    That miss by Chanda was bad. Wilombe plays well but she should be given 2/3 of the match to play. She gets tired towards the end of the match.
    We have the team.
    Improve very match on the anticepation of the ball, thats where we lost it very much. We din’t know where the ball would land and which direction it would take after it bounced.We also need to improve on the pace of our defenders.
    We lacked experience otherwise the girls played well in general.
    I commend them.
