Zambia to play Botswana in Cosafa Cup quarter final

Zambia will play Botswana in the quarter finals of the regional COSAFA Castle Cup tournament to be played in South Africa in June.

According to the draws conducted on Tuesday in South Africa, Zambia, Botswana, South Africa, Swaziland and Namibia were all excluded from the preliminary rounds which will be contested by eight other teams.

Zambia last year were booted out of the tournament after losing to Swaziland on post match penalties under the tutelage of George Lwandamina and Aggrey Chiyangi.

They were held to a goalless draw in regulation time and Paul Katema and Spencer Sautu failed to convert their spot kicks.

They went on to play in the plate semi final where they beat Lesotho 3 – 2 with goals from Paul Katema, Spencer Sautu and Charles Zulu.

They then lost 1 – 0  in the final to Namibia.

It will be a tight schedule for Wedson Nyirenda’s team with the CHAN, Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup all lined up between 9th June and 28th August, 2017.

    “It will be a tight schedule for Wedson Nyirenda’s team with the CHAN, Africa Cup of Nations and World Cup all lined up between 9th June and 28th August, 2017″…. But doesnt this also play to the advantage of the Coach/Technical team to shuffle around players and streamline them for the continental and global challenges?

  2. KELLY CHIBANGA says:

    Great chance 2 come up with a strongest side which wil see us qaulify 4 ze world cup

  3. Sab says:

    The Game of football is about scoring, and the only players who score are in the U20 team.why don’t we bring them in the senior team. Because the way the so-called experienced players are playing will take us no where. We can’t even enjoy watching the game, as if its Mufulila Black Pool
