Cosafa U20: Mozambique 1 – 1 Zambia (As it happened)
Fresh from being denied a place at the next year’s Africa’s biggest youth tournament, The U20 Africa Cup of Nations, Zambia will be hoping to restore pride by beating their Mozambican counter-parts in their last group stage match of the 2018 COSAFA Castle Cup tournament to be played this afternoon at Nkana stadium.
A win for the young Chipolopolo will ensure that the Charles Bwale led team maintain their 100 percent record at the on-going COSAFA tournament at the group stage level. Zambia has two wins from two games with 4 goals scored and none allowed.
However, Zambia U20 Coach Charles Bwale will have to sweat for late fitness test on instrumental Lameck Banda who limped off in the previous game against Congo DR. But Zambia’s top scorer Prince Mumba with 3 goals is fit again to bang in those goals.
On the other hand Mozambique coach Jose Victor Matine has charged that his side is ready and will cause an upset.
Mozambique has 4 points from two matches. A win or draw for Mozambique will see the young Maambas through to the last four while Zambia who has already qualified to the semi final will try by all means to avoid a defeat and ensure their 100 percent record is preserved.
The match will be played at 15:30hrs from Nkana Stadium and will be carried live on the Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC).
