The two sides last eight fate was decided at draws made in Johannesburg on Tuesday.

South Africa will host the 20th edition of the Cosafa Cup from June 25-July 9 in the North-West Province.

It is the first time the two sides will meet in the knockout stage since 2006 when Zambia beat Botswana 1-0 in the semifinals en route to defeating Angola 2-0 in the final.

Strangely the two sides have only met twice in the Cosafa Cup with the first coming in 2000 in a first round fixture Zambia won 3-0.

Meanwhile, Zambia will be hoping for better fortunes in this years edition after tumbling at the quarterfinals in the last two editions and relegated to the Plate semifinals.
