Sports Zambia reach 2017 Cosafa Cup final

Zambia are through to the 2017 COSAFA Cup final after rallying to thump tough Tanzania 4-2 at Moruleng Stadium in South Africa on Wednesday evening.

Wedson Nyirenda’s side recovered from a goal down as Zambia booked their ninth COSAFA Cup final spot.

Nkwazi striker Justin Shonga scored a brace with goals in the 56 and 68th minutes with Jackson Chirwa and his Green Buffaloes team mate Brian Mwila scoring the other goals.

The Taifa Stars led after 16 minutes with Erasto Nyoni punishing Zambia with an early goal in the first semifinal tie.

Later in the 84th minute, Tanzania reduced the deficit to 4-2 through Simon Msuva as the guest team from East Africa showed the spirit of not giving up easily.

Zambia will now face the winners of the late kickoff second semifinal between Zimbabwe and Lesotho in Sunday’s final.

Zambia are seeking a record fifth COSAFA Cup title.

  1. With lungu illegally leading Zambia we will never win a single tournament. Even cosafa you will fail. We are now cursed. Only way out is lynch lungu

    • Give credit where it’s due. The boys played well and with that team spirit they showed, they can beat any team and become victors. Bravo Chipolopolo !!

    • Lungu lynched and jailed your HH. Who is the boss? The jailed or the jailer? While your HH is languishing in jail, ECL continues to enjoy life. Whose zooming who? You being dribbled in all areas, pathetic tribal losers!

  2. Why ZICTA who attempted to block this NEZ (Not educated zambian) have allowed him to surface up again? Too much hate language from his mouth /everywhere with orifices. Prepare well for sunday game cos. Zim has been giving us problems of late

  3. Not educated Zambian, what are u talking about? Under ECL the national team has managed to lift the Cosafa U-20 & U-20 Africa cups. Meanwhile your hungry hyena is still languishing in jail.

  4. Wy bring in name of the president in ur partisan thots…. Change u pipo and ve respect for elders. Namushuka nabaleka ukumpanda ngefumu!
