Tunisia Shock Chipolopolo at Home

Sports Tunisia Shock Chipolopolo at Home

Chipolopolo’s perfect start to the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign has ended following a home loss to Tunisia at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Tuesday afternoon.

Tunisia scored in each half to thump Zambia 2-0 in the second Group B match in Ndola.

The Carthage Eagles went in front after eight minutes when forward Wahbe Al-Khazari scored a penalty following an handle in the Zambian box.

Anis Bin Suleiman scored Tunisia’s second goal deep in second half stoppage time.

Zambia missed several opportunities in both halves much to the disappointment of home supporters.

Defender Dominic Chanda directed his shot at keeper Ben Mustapha on 42 minutes after Dickson Chapa had missed from inside the box.

Coach Beston Chambeshi made a double substitution after the break that changed the direction of the game as Zambia attacked more.

Winger Kelvin Kampamba went in for Edward Chilufya with Clatous Chama replacing Boyd Musonda.

Chama saw his close range header stopped by Mustapha after a cross engineered by Mubanga.

Debutant and substitute Jimmy Mukeya watched in disbelief when his low shot went inches wide from the post.

Meanwhile, Tunisia commands Group B on six points from the opening two games and Zambia remain on three points after last Friday’s 2-1 away win in Mauritania.


  1. This was not a shock result. It was expected. The clueless Kamanga FAZ cannot be compared to the AFCON winning Kalusha FAZ. They didn’t even have the spine to protest to FIFA about the unfair Premier League players being restricted to play.

  2. Zambians are stubborn. They will stick with Kamanga no matter what. Katanga was a PF appointment. Let us cleanse all PF appointments.

    Why do you people hate Kalusha so much?

    Even Lesotho and Swaziland are better than us. We have truly hit rock bottom.

  3. The euphoria that followed our win over Mauritania, my my…WE HAVE STARTED WINNING BECAUSE? Simply put Zambia was a great team because of the backing of the mighty ZCCM. Even the FAZ office was funded and manned by ZCCM. Teams from as young as under fourteen were well sponsored. I remember how over weekends we used to crisscross the copperbelt taking our young teams going to Chililabombwe from Luanshya, dropping some in Kitwe, Mufulira, Kalulushi, Chingola. Ours was really a well organized sport. Thanks to MMD that sold the mines.

  4. Kamanga has nothing to do with this loss! Blame the coach! Kamanga makes sure all resources are provided. Football competion is like an exam. If a parent provides all the necessary requirements for a child to go to school , learn and sit for exams, but fails exam, do you blame the parent? So don’t be unfair to Kamanga, infact under his administration players are paid allowances on time and nobody is owed anything like it was under Kalusha Bwalya! Bravo Kamanga! What needs to be looked at is the quality of our game at club level, and various factors are affecting the game at that level, like the parastatal companies that were sold to Indians and Chinese during privitization. These Indians and Chinese are not supporting soccer adequately, so quality of game is affected at club level ,…

  5. People don’t want Kalusha Bwalya because he was mal-administrating soccer. There was no financial diclipline. Players were not being paid allowances. He interfered with selection of national team players, there were shady deals in the transfer of players to foreign clubs! I hope Indigo now understands why Kalusha Bwalya is no longer wanted in the administration of Zambia soccer.

  6. Boring. The result was not a shock. Watching Zambia against any North African team is the same as just watching an old Zambia game on YouTube because we play the same and lose the same way all the time. Team managers, coaches and players all do the same things over and over again but expect a different result. PLEASE!

  7. The boys tried their best but they were too young and inexperienced compared to Tunisia. Who ever told us young ones are good in such tornament be witched us. Maturity and experience are the keys. The team lacked a leader on the pitch. They were just running and playing aimlessly with all the talent
