Unbeaten Shepolopolo Stun Tunisia


Second half substitute Avell Chitundu grabbed a stoppage time goal as Zambia overcame Tunisia 1-0 in their second Group B match of the ongoing 2022 Women’s Africa Cup in Morocco.

Chitundu, who replaced Misozi Zulu in the 57th minute, tapped in Grace Chanda’s header in the 90th minute to stun Tunisia in Casablanca.

Shepolopolo had missed a chance to go ahead earlier in the 69th minute as Xiomara Mapepa’s spectacular freekick was disallowed for alleged offside.

The decision to disallow Mapepa’s goal was confirmed via VAR.

It was an eventful game in which Zambia missed a first half penalty when striker Ochumba Oseke Lubanji sent her kick over after Mapepa was hacked in the box by Rania.

Zambia must equally thank keeper Hazel Nali for making some fine saves in both halves.

Nali stopped a robust shot off the line after 17 minutes as Tunisia tested Zambia early in the match.

Meanwhile, Zambia top Group B on four points having forced a goalless draw against Cameroon in their opening match on Sunday.

Second placed Tunisia remains on three points which they earned when thumping Togo 4-1 on Sunday.

Cameroon are tackling Tunisia in the late night Group B encounter as qualification to the quarterfinal heats up.

Zambia’s last group B match will be against Togo on 9 July in Rabat on the same day Tunisia will face Cameroon in Casablanca.


  1. Ba LT why arent you telling us that Barbara Banda has been banned because she was found to be male? South African radio stations are giving us the news while you remain numb. Niye journalism?

  2. I have always viewed to be a man since day one and i was also always of the view that one day they will catch. These gay organisations are feeding us with so much lies these days such that innocent people also start to believe lies. The same here happened with Caster Semenya who is equally a man but the Gay/ Lesbian organisations are shielding her. For Caster he has fake small breasts on him but for Banda its completely flat out there and look at his muscles,his face, his physique? Also recently Caster Semenya married a female here, so why not marry a man since he claimed to be a woman? But goes to marry a woman and wedded that woman, it goes to show that the guy has a dk.
