Zambia make bright start at COSAFA U20 Cup

Sports Zambia make bright start at COSAFA U20...

Hosts Zambia have kicked off the 2018 COSAFA Under-20 Cup with a 2-0 victory over rivals Malawi in the opening Group A match played on Sunday at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

Midfielder Prince Mumba came off the bench to snatch a double as the Junior Chipolopolo thumped the Young Flames.

Mumba, who replaced Emmanuel Mwiinde just after the break, scored in the 62nd and 85th minutes.

Coach Charles Bwale’s team had struggled through out the first half before he made three subs after the restart.

Bwale introduced Chanda Mukuka for Albert Kangwanda while Mwiya Malumo went in for the injured Lameck Banda.

The changes seemingly worked well for Zambia as the team started creating more chances and shooting at goal.

On the other hand, Malawi were good only to be let down by poor finishing.

Meanwhile, Zambia midfielder Oliver Lumbiya was voted man of the match after an impressive show on the day.

Zambia’s next match is on Wednedsay against late comers DR Congo at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

Earlier on Sunday at Nkana Stadium, Angola and Lesotho drew 1-1 in the Group C match.
