Tunisia Hammer Chipolopolo to Win Group B

Sports Tunisia Hammer Chipolopolo to Win Group B

Chipolopolo have wrapped up their failed Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign with a 3-1 loss against Tunisia in the final Group B match.

Tunisia disturbed Zambia with three first half goals at Stade Hammadi Arebi on Tuesday night.

The Carthage Eagles have advanced to the final qualifying round on 13 points after completing a double over Zambia.

After early misses, Tunisia opened the scoring through Aissa Laidouni in the 18th minute.

Forward Mohamed Drager doubled Tunisia’s lead on 31 minutes before Ali Maaloul added the third goal in the 43 minute.

Minutes earlier keeper Toaster Nsabata saved a penalty to keep the score line less.

Zambia put up an improved display in the second half that saw Fashion Sakala score the consolation goal after 80 minutes.

Sakala scored a rebound from the penalty he missed when Patson Daka was fouled in the box.

Meanwhile, Mauritania have beaten Equatorial Guinea 1-0 at home to deny their rivals a chance to advance.

This was Mauritania’s first win of the campaign.

Equatorial Guinea finishes second in Group B on ten points followed by Zambia on seven points and bottom placed Mauritania earned four points in the six-match round.


  1. Life under the new dawn government. This is what happens when you have a failed under 5 govt in control. They have been losing hopelessly since upnd stole the elections. It was under pf that we won afcon. Our record speaks for itself.

  2. Just shut up, you, the woes of not qualifying to Afcon 3consecutive wash under PF so what Nosense are you talking about

  3. Did anyone expect something else? After 2012 ZAMBIA has just been fishing in an empty pond… especially with the current crop at Football House.

  4. @1. Please, note that the winning of Afcon had very little, if not nothing, to do with your heavy borrowing unsighted administration. MMD under soccer loving RB and coach Bonneti deserve the praise. Borrowing for the sake of self grandiose and theft, senseless.

  5. Zambia has a lot of potential to do better in international football. Football house should consider sponsoring Beston Chambeshi to go out and pursue a higher level coaching course.

  6. I dont know what you expected from such a poorly and haphazardly prepared team with an old fashioned coach. Zambia lost at home to Tunisia and did anyone expect Zambia to beat Tunisia at home?

    Even if they went through to the next round, and gues who has qualified Morrocco ,Egypt,Senegal, Cameroun, Nigeria and others. Then if they miraculosly managed to finally qualify ,lets see who they were going to meet ,Belgium, Croatia, Denmark, England, France, Germany ,Netherlands, Serbia, Spain Switzerland ,Brazil and Argentina.
    Don’t forgrt the bias of CAF /FIFA .When Southern African teams are palying against North or West African Africans, they choose referees from West Africa orNorth Africa. See what happened in the game Zambia played againt Equatorial Guinea, Ghana vs SouthAfrica.

  7. We missed Qatar months ago by having no proper coach, no proper team, no competitive games
    We need strategic planning otherwise we are going to miss the opportunity to use our current stars like Mwepu, Fashion, Patson, Augustine, Kelvin, Spencer, Shonga to mention a few… That is the reason why I think we have an administration problem but when we win a game a hot debate begins what’s wrong…

  8. Hahaha ati sponsoring Chambeshi..it’s a joke ..Even if that had to be done we will still continue with poor results.
