Zambia are the 2017 COSAFA U17 Cup champions.

Mumamba Numba’s side beat hosts Mauritius 3-0 on Sunday in Port Louis to collect their debut COSAFA U17 Cup crown.

Captain Prince Mumba put Zambia ahead in the 72nd minute with a long range shot before striker Christopher Phiri added the second in the 79th minute.

Phiri chipped the ball over Mauritius goalkeeper Jean Michel and two minutes later, defender Kingsley Hawiya fired in another long range shot to put the result beyond doubt.

Zambia joined 2017 winners Namibia and Malawi on one COSAFA Under-17 titles each.

Namibia didn’t defend their crown that they won last year in Mauritius due to logistical reasons.

South Africa are the record winners with two Under-17 titles.
