Zambia’s two-goal hero against Cote Ivoire Augustine Mulenga says they are gunning to finish Group B on a high this Sunday.

Mulenga scored a brace in Zambia’s 2-0 win over The Elephants to propel the 2009 CHAN bronze medal winners to the quarterfinals with a game in hand.

But Zambia have one more Group B assignment left when they battle second placed Namibia this Sunday to decide who tops the group heading into the January 27 quarterfinals.

Namibia too has 6 points from their opening two games.

“It was not an easy game. We fought and congrats to my colleagues for a good job done, “the Zanaco attacking midfielder said.

“We have achieved what we wanted. Our target is one game at a time and the maximum point from each game. We are looking forward to topping the group.”

Mulenga’s brace took his tally to three goals at The CHAN after scoring his first on January 14 in Zambia’s 3-1 win over Uganda.

Uganda and Cote d’Ivoire who have both lost their opening two Group B matches pack their bags on Sunday after their dead-rubber tie in Marrakech.

Winner from Group B will face runner-up from Group A and vice versa in Marrakech and Casablanca respectively next Saturday.

Group A leaders and hosts Morocco and second place Sudan, who are both locked on six points, faceoff this Saturday to decide the top two status.

  1. That is the beauty of sports. If it was in politics the name Mulenga would have been associated with tribalism.


  2. @2 you are right, I know this guy. He is Mr Syandenge’s first nephew from Magoye, south of Mazabuka.

    He comes from a footballing family in Mazabuka. His young brothers name is Choolwe Silenga.

    Good football. Keep it up Silenga. We are proud of you. The good thing is that football knows no politics.


  3. I agree with you comrades. We can use football to fight tribalism bcoz it knows no tribal limits. Viva football, abash tribalism. We’re one Zambia one nation.
