Mukuka relieved after Zambia win

Sports Mukuka relieved after Zambia win

Zambia winger Allan Mukuka says the team is relieved after redeeming themselves with a win over Ghana.

Zambia beat Ghana 3-0 on Wednesday at Royal Bafokeng Stadium in Rustenburg in the Cosafa Cup Plate semifinal to reach Friday’s 5th and 6th playoff final to be played at the same venue.

The win came after the defending champions were bundled out of the competition at the quarterfinal stage last Sunday by Namibia who beat them 5-4 on post-match penalties.

Zambia will face Malawi in the playoff final after The Flames scorched Bafana Bafana 5-4 on post-match penalties in their Plate semifinal on Wednesday.

“We feel so happy because we lost our last game. We have recovered from the loss we won 3-0 and we will definitely win the final,” the Green Buffaloes winger who won man-of-the-match on Wednesday said.

“We had all the confidence to beat the guys.”

Mukuka has been given a new lease of life under Janza who recalled the veteran winger to the Zambia fold for the first time since 2010 in the 2-0 friendly win over Rwanda in Lusaka on March 29.

  1. What is the meaning of the “PLATE” in this COSAFA?Soccer fundis please advise because I do not understand it.

    • “Plate” means Silver, it is just another tournament which abena Kalusha and frinds added, so Zambia or RSA can win some rands.

  2. They should stop this Plate thing that they have copied from Rugby. It is boring boring for soccer
