Shepolopolo have made their intentions to win the 2020 COSAFA Women’s Championship known by thumping Lesotho 8-0 in the opening Group B match played in South Africa on Wednesday.
China based Captain Barbra Banda scored a hat-trick and Grace Chanda registered a brace at Wolfson in Port Elizabeth.
There were also second half goals scored by Prisca Chilufya, Maylan Mulenga and Ireen Lungu.
Lesotho had given Zambia, the 2019 runners up, a good run in the first half before they collapsed in the last half.
Banda helped Coach Bruce Mwape’s side to take a 1-0 lead into the break with a close range strike minutes away from half time.
Meanwhile, Zambia’s next and final Group B match is against Malawi on November 9.
Group B has three teams only.
Chi Grace Chanda chisuma ichimwana chilya. So beautiful, in and out. And her way of play is so beautiful. That girl would be a phenomena in Europe.
