Barbra Banda Soaks in WAFCON Qualification and Salutes Copperbelt Fans


Shepolopolo Zambia Captain Barbra Banda has hailed her team’s qualification to the 2024 Women’s Africa Cup to be hosted by Morocco.

Zambia qualified for the Africa Cup with a 12-0 aggregate win over Angola.

The Bruce Mwape coached side on Tuesday night secured qualification with a 6-0 home win against Angola at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola after winning the away first leg with an identical score-line in Luanda seven days earlier.

In a post-match comment, Banda has attributed Zambia’s third consecutive WAFCON qualification to teamwork.

“Qualification to the WAFCON is sealed,” Banda wrote on her official face-book page.

“Great effort from the whole team and thank you ba Ndola for the support,” she stated.

This is the fourth appearance Zambia will be making at the WAFCON.


  1. Why dont we use these girls in our AFCON finals? They can beat Mohammad Salah’s Egypt! They will win the cup for us. The men’s team is not as sharp and disciplined.

    • @Pa Chilata, I think you’re very right. These national soccer players wasting taxpayers’ money seems to have a problem with self-discipline.
