Sven Vandenbroeck collected his first win in charge of Chipolopolo on Tuesday after a 1-0 friendly win away against Gabon in Libreville.
The result marked a good start for the Belgian and is unbeaten from two games in charge of Chipolopolo just four days after an unconvincing 1-1 draw against Namibia in a 2019 AFCON Group K qualifier in Windhoek.
Striker Justin Shonga was again Chipolopolo’s hero when he struck in the 16th minute and could have added a brace but saw his 40th minute goal ruled-out for offside .
It was Shonga’s second goal in as many games following his stoppage time equalizer on September 8 against Namibia.
Meanwhile, Vandenbroeck’s next match will be on October 10 when Chipolopolo hosts Guinea Bissau on match-day-three of the 2019 AFCON Group K qualifiers at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka in a 17h00 kickoff before travelling to Bissau three days later for the final leg.
ZAMBIA STARTING XI: Nsabata, Sichone, Chungu, Shamujompa, L.Banda, Salulani, C.Chama, Mwepu, Lubambo, Shonga, Musakanya
