Shepolopolo Suffer Controversial WAFCON Semis Defeat


Shepolopolo Zambia failed to reach the 2022 Women’s Africa Cup final following a controversial 1-0 loss to South Africa in the semifinal on Monday night.

It was an heartbreaking loss as Zambia conceded a 90th minute penalty in Casablanca.

South Africa’s Linda Motlhalo scored a 90th minute penalty after Martha Tembo allegedly fouled Jermaine Seoposenwe in the box.

VAR confirmed Tembo’s foul.

Motlhalo stepped forward to beat Zambia keeper Catherine Musonda.

It was a game of two halves with Zambia dominating the opening half and Banyana controlled the last 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, Zambia will fight for third place against the losers of the second semifinal tie involving Morocco and Nigeria.


  1. Remember what I have been saying? Zambia won’t win a top tier sports competition as long as evil hh and upnd are in power. You got too excited and ignored my prophesy. See your lives

  2. It wasnt a penalty for sure. But the girls especially strikers have themselves to blame for fluffing all those glorious

  3. Zambia had a chance to score at least 2 goals. If that was done then the penalty shouldn’t have been an issue

  4. ECl / PF regime was worst evil that befell Zambian’s. We always thank the Lord for liberating us, and for HH/ UPND
