CHAN 2021: Its Zambia v Morocco in quarter finals

CHAN Group D Match Day 3: Namibia 0 – 0 Zambia

The Zambia national soccer team has qualified to the quarter finals of the ongoing CHAN 2021 competition after playing out to a goalless draw with Namibia.

Zambia will rue the missed chances in a game they dominated in all areas but clearly lacked the killer instinct.

Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojević made one change to starting eleven bringing in Moses Phiri for Amity Shamenda and he tweaked his tactics to go with a 4 4 2 formation throwing Paul Katema wide to the right.

Zambia were creating chances from the start but not troubling the keeper. Moses Phiri was the first to head over the bar a meter from the goal line when a Kelvin Kampamba corner in the 13th minute found him in the 6 yard box. Two minutes later, Adrian Chama picked his run with a long cross-field ball. He controlled the ball well but was brought down by the goalie for what seemed to be a penalty but the referee waved play on.

Next it was skipper Chama who found space in the box from another Kampamba corner but he also sent his free header wide in the 39th minute.

Emmanuel Chabula followed suit in the 45th minute when a brilliant cross from Zechariah Chilongoshi found him in the box but he headed wide.

Zambia continued the second half from where they ended with their dominance, but Namibia were looking more threatening on the counter attack.

Chama and defense partner Luka Banda were excellent and both picked yellow cards to curl some dangerous counter attacks and keep Zambia in the game.

Despite bringing in Spencer Sautu for Moses Phiri and Amity Shamenda for Kampamba, the Zambian attack was just not good enough on the day and they missed the chance of topping group D.

In the other group D match, Tanzania conceded late in the 82nd minute to draw 2 – 2 with Guinea who qualify to the quarter finals as Group D winners.

The results sees Tanzania join Namibia on the next plane out of Cameroon while Zambia will play defending champions Morocco on Sunday at 18h00. They will shift town to Douala. Guinea will stay in Limbe to play Rwanda.

  1. Tony mash says:

    Micho has literally failed us. How can you fail to beat a dejected team

  2. Obuluzo 1 says:

    These guys should be scoring for such is football for them to be declared winners. Such chances should have earned us a top slot and leaders of the group.

  3. Killian says:

    Players with defective legs and heads how can they score. Should the coach sure start teaching them how to hit the ball into the net. When they come back all strikers should never be in the national team . This is their last chance to straighten their legs and heads. Dont just waiste public funds.

  4. The coach is not as tactical as H renar
    But let us give him support

  5. Chindika Popeye Nguni says:

    With what I saw last night, chapwa the journey ends here. We can’t beat Morocco with that shambolic display.

  6. Godfrey Kaniki Chilufya says:

    Zambia looked disorganised in their play.
    And to make matters worse they were not clinical in their passes…
    If we play the same game when we meet Morocco it will be disaster.

  7. Zambians wake up. its TIME to win the chan championship

  8. Samuel says:

    Everytime i try to energize my suport for our national team they disapoint me.whats wrong with our players and the team team at large?

  9. Q.P.D says:

    Sautu must start the game and chilongoshi also must rest for Samu there is no time for experiments Iwe Micho.And why do u take long to substitute?This is Zambia my brother u will go faster than immediately

  10. Sibs says:

    Can’t say much because I have not been able to watch any of the games. But i expected Zambia to beat Namibia who were the whipping boys of our Group.

    That’s Zambia for you, The games you expect them to win, that’s when the disappoint you.

  11. DM says:

    things fall apart.our players lack intelligence they fail to take responsibility to them dawning in those national colours is what matters to them so that when they come back home baletinya bakatolela ati mwalimbona baice very foolish behaviour

  12. Ante Buselic says:

    The end of the road for Zambia! Not because Morocco is a better team but that Zambia has a poor defensive formation that collapses easily.
    Under wing attack our players follow the ball and never close spaces. Arabs play fast attacking football and will tear that fragile defence apart.

  13. GIFT KAPANDA says:

    what time is zambia morocco game ?
