Shepolopolo U20 collect COSAFA U20 silver medal

Sports Shepolopolo U20 collect COSAFA U20 silver medal

Shepolopolo U20 settled for silver today in South Africa after losing 2-1 to Tanzania in the 2019 COSAFA U20 Women’s Cup final in Port Elizabeth.

The result handed Shepolopolo U20’s only defeat after winning their last four matches at the tournament that also included a 2-1 victory over Tanzania in the group stage.

Tanzania took a 1-0 halftime lead against Shepolopolo through Opa Sanga after a defensive mix-up that involved goalkeeper and Captain Anna Mukumbuta and her defender.

But Shepolopolo midfielder Loveness Malunga leveled matters in the 56th minute with a breathtaking long-range volley.

However, Portasia Mbunda put matters beyond doubt for Tanzania, matching Malunga’s breathtaking goal for Shepolopolo and the result sees the guest side from the CECAFA zone crowned inaugural COSAFA U20 Women’s Cup champions.

Later this afternoon, senior Shepolopolo will be hoping not to also be coming back home with silver when they face defending champions and host Banyana Banyana in the 2019 COSAFA Women’s Cup final.

  1. I have lost hope in Zambian sport. Those women don’t perform at maximum potential because they are not free. Let us be realistic, most of these female foot ballers are gay or lesbian. In Zambia they cannot be free so how can we expect the best from some one who is stiffled by the old colonial anti gay system. Let us change our ways and change with the times. Gays bisexuals are all humans.

    • Gay jay! just because you are gay does not mean everyone is like u,attributing your disease to the performance of the girls is vile.they played well up to the finals and we are proud of them.
