Zambia 1-3 Zimbabwe (Cosafa Cup Final – As it happened)

So it’s Chipolopolo up against the Warriors, the battle of the Zambezi, a regional Derby of sorts. With two coaches with a point to prove, four fiery forwards looking to make the headlines and two neighboring countries on the edge of their seats eager to cheer!

In 2009, it was at Rufaro Stadium where Zimbabwe won the battle of Zambezi, then a Bronson Chama captained side won it on home soil at Ndola’s Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in 2013.

Now, the stage is set at a neutral venue for Southern Africa’s top derby.

  19. R2D2 says:

    The Bogus kit stinks of corruption right to the top-FAZ president Kamanga!! The kit is horrendous, no design whatsoever just a blaring of orange and black. As per usual the coach is clueless with no detectable organized patterns in defense or attack.

    WADA will not take Zambia anywhere.

  35. ZamFoot says:

    79′ Zambia 1-3 Zimbabwe
    Rushed challenge by Webster Mulenga on Chawapiwa earns him a yellow card

  36. ZamFoot says:

    81’Zambia 1-3 Zimbabwe
    Chawapiwa has been excellent for Zimbabwe and it’s a shame he has to be substituted for an injury from that challenge

  37. Generalismo says:

    It is wishful thinking and stupidity to think that Wada will get Zambia anywhere. The team selection to start with will not get Zambia anywhere

  38. ZamFoot says:

    82′ Zambia 1-3 Zimbabwe

  46. Thoko Ngwenya says:

    A very bad weekend for Zambian football with local coaches…at some point to the players fault as well as the tactical awareness or astituteness of the coaches
    …Zanaco failed when it most mattered and Wada Wada and Zambia here…
    Zambia national team simply need to change this coach. I think Janza was even better with the ex0erience he garnered under Renard and at AFCON 2015…but what did FAZ do?

  47. Generalismo says:

    With Wada, Zambia is not going to go anywhere. He lacks the necessary technical acumen-ship a country of Zambian pedigree deserves. Plot 1 showed lack of ambition by pushing an appointment of such mediocrity

  48. ZamFoot says:

    FULL TIME: Zambia 1-3 Zimbabwe (Mutizwa,21′, Chawapiwa,65′,Mushure, 67′ | Mundia,37′)

    Zimbabwe win Cosafa Cup for a record fifth time.

    Beaten by a better mindset.

  50. Mingalato says:

    Nyerenda made horrible mistake of leaving Beira in Mozambique. He had better chances of being on of well enjoying coaches.
    But he rushed for golden tribal rush under both PF and FAZ.

    • R2D2 says:

      The ones eating are a very few selected Easterners and a host of Bembas from PSs to Ministers all Bemba a 180 turn on Mwanawasas tribal govt.

  51. Mingalato says:

    If I was Nyerenda I wouldn’t go back to Zambia, just find a club in South Africa.

  52. sly says:

    I beg to differ. The officiating cost Zed the game.

  53. sly says:

    As for Zesco, my story is the same. That lekgoa/mulungu is the weakest link.Why is he paid?

  54. Billy says:

    The Zambian team is not organised, and lacked confidence, aggressiveness, drive, and passes were horrible. They were just kicking the ball in front like “it’s to whom it may concern”. This is not a good team. Unfortunately, these are the traits of the senior team as well. I can’t even say about the coach himself. The less I say about him the better.

  55. Leo Pretoria says:

    Northern Rhodesea
    Thank U Zimbabwe for showing NR how to score
    Because some people were beginning to think that wada wada is a coach
    Like kabwe warriors, power dynamos now it’s chipolopolo
    Kamanga li kula period!
    Local coaches makula

  56. humble says:

    FAZ itx now time 2 react or let govt intervene jx like in sudan so dat zambia cn also be suspended unlike seein them being embarrassed by dis wada wada thing, his cluess, enough of stupidity pliz!!!

  57. R2D2 says:

    Look at the kit and the rubbish sponsorship $200k a year agreement between FAZ and the Ghanaian company.

  58. Anonymous says:

    Congrats for reaching the final. You have silver medal at least. Those players must fight to keep their places. Under-20 should show they re knocking on the door. Go Zambia!

    • Kips says:

      What was wrong with this Wada guy coopting as many as U-20 boys? Did he think he was going to give credit to Quick Silver? Now he (Wada) has got the humiliation he deserves.

  59. Big Steve 4rm SA says:

    Gents this might actually be not so bad because had Zambia won this cup then certain people would use it to start justifying why we should stick with a local coach.

    The more the coach incapacity to deliver in tournaments might just spear head Govt to agree with FAZ that there is justifiably a need for a foreign experienced coach.

  60. Kips says:

    We had it coming. This Wada has killed our once entertaining play. Shame, our players could not even string more than three passes. Our strikers couldn’t go round the defenders. I saw, on many occasions, our strikers dribbled by Zim defenders at will. Sad.

  61. Concerned Citizen says:

    Time to dump the coach and the inept FAZ regime before they make irreparable damage to the team.

  62. Chocho says:

    Coach Wonder Wonder!!! All we saw was each player trying whatever they know from the club. Nothing from Coach Wonder Wonder? ??????

  63. Mark c says:

    This is a weak team the cant string passes together. Credit goes to Zimbabwe the played entertainment football. Zambia is the weak team.dont live in the past zambian go back to the drawing board complecenncy has killed football in zambia. I give credit to Brian Mwila what strong player he lucked support. That Webster Mulenga and Jersey 7 the were weak Wada must learn to lead the game sure with this coach zambia no afcon and world cup for you.bring fashion sakala, mwepu dDhaka and Banda.to the team.

  64. I even miss Herve Renard and great Kalu’s administration….* Kamanga, get us a coach please!!! “wada wada chovu” is just too dull to be a national team coach
