Zambia U20 Women’s national team threw away a lead twice to draw against DR Congo in the first leg of FIFA U20 FIFA Women’s World Cup second leg.
Lydia Shamalima gave the Copper Princesses a dream start with a fourth minute goal.
Thirteen minutes later Ruth Nyamboki equalised for Congo to leave the home fans at Nkoloma Stadium speechless.
Charles Halubono’s side continued to push for a goal and we reward by a Mary Mbewe goal on the hour mark.
The lead just lasted seven minutes as Gloria Nosa found an equaliser to earn the girls from Kinshasa a draw.
DR Congo host Zambia in a return leg next week and will be buoyed by the two away goals advantage.
FULL-TIME: Zambia 2-2 DR Congo (Lydia Shamalima 4’, Mary Mbewe 60’ | Ruth Nyamboki 17’, Gloria Nosa 67’)
