Shepolopolo on Sunday failed to qualify for the 2016 African Womens Championship after losing 3-2 to Zimbabwe in the second leg match of the final round at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Zambia clashed out 4-2 on aggregate having lost the first leg match by 1-0 in Harare last Wednesday.

Albert Kachinga’s side entered Nkoloma Stadium with the hope of reversing the first leg loss in Lusaka.

However, Shepolopolo suffered a set back when Zimbabwe took a 6th minute lead thanks to Kudakwashe Basopo’s early goal that was cancelled by striker Noria “Mbesuma” Sosala on 22 minutes.

Zimbabwe went 2-1 up with a goal from Samkelisiwe Zulu in the 35th minute to silence the home supporters in Lusaka.

Fifteen minutes after the break Zambia equalised with a 60th minute penalty converted by Misozi Zulu before Emmaculate Msipa scored the winner on 89 minutes.

Zambia has only been to the African Womens Championship once.


    • I thought you guys used to blame Great Kalu every time Zambia lost? Today you want to change goal posts. We are still waiting for friendlies
