Morocco Ends Chipolopolo’s CHAN Odyssey

Sports Feature Sports Morocco Ends Chipolopolo's CHAN Odyssey

Chipolopolo’s 2021 CHAN odyssey came to calamitous end on Sunday when ten-man Zambia was humbled 3-1 by defending champions Morocco.

The result in Douala on Sunday evening sees Zambia make a now customary CHAN quarterfinal exit for a third successive time since making the playoffs in 2009 at the inaugural tournament in Cote d’Ivoire where they finished third.

Defender Zachariah Chilongoshi saw red in the 20th minute, but by then, the defending CHAN champions were leading 2-0 through goals by Soufiane Rahmini and Mohammed Bemmamer in the 1st and 8th minutes respectively.

Ayoub El Kaabi added the third from the penalty spot in the 39th minute to see Morocco take a 3-0 halftime lead.

Moses Phiri, who came one for his Zanaco teammate Kelvin Kapumbu in the 46th minute, scored the consolation with ten minutes left on the clock to end Chipolopolo’s interest in the campaign.


  1. God forgive me for what I am about to say as a new born again.

    These boys have embarrassed us. This shows the indiscipline in zambian football. If I was watching this game I would have personally gone on the pitch and phucked them up with punches and whlpping. F00lish waste of my Sunday.

    Too much dancing and sleeping with women instead of training. Can they not get paid for this imwebantu

    The boys being inexperienced, they were not confident enough. There was a need to add two or three experienced players like James Chamanga . I know most people would not support the idea of James , but he could have been used technically like what Cameroon did some decades ago with Roger Miller .

  3. It is called football. We don’t invest nor prepare well but expect miracles to happen. For me, considering what we out it, quarter final exit is an achievement for the boys. We must not expect blame the boys! They need support to mature properly!

  4. I think lack of confidence, desire, belief and discipline is the key issue here!! it seems that every international footballer nowadays wants to be flash even if they have not achieved anything at international level> where is our role model to teach and tell this upcoming sportsman who to carry themselves whilst on the international duty. we don’t need a bunch of losers to represent our national team lets pick up from where our 2012 african nation hores achieved let be counted as nation hores as well to inspire others going forward I know you can do it, You have such massive support all over the country. come on chipolopolo boys and girls.
