Shepolopolo Zambia assistant coach Florence Mwila has congratulated rivals Malawi for a well deserved 2023 COSAFA Women’s Championship triumph in South Africa.

Malawi scored in each half with Zambia grabbing the consolation in between.

In a post-match comment, Mwila said Malawi played well.

“It was a tough match as anticipated,” Mwila said .

“We are just proud of the girls. Look at how much they fought despite most of them coming to the tournament for the first time,” she said.

“They really put up a good fight and congratulations to Malawi. Malawi played well and carried the day,” Mwila said.


  1. I was present in the stadium for this game. Physical aspects continue to hinder our girls’ performance, we need taller players. Please selectors, please! Even the Malawian ‘he-women’ were physically more imposing on our players during this game, I ended up leaving the stadium before full time in frustration.
