Copper Queens through to COSAFA semis despite loss to Malawi

The Zambia Women’s national team suffered a 1-0 defeat to the Scorchers of Malawi this afternoon in the ongoing 2020 COSAFA Women’s Championship.

Temwa Chawinga scored the only goal in the 31st minute to hand Malawi a second group win and make sure they finish top of group B. It was a poor performance from coach Bruce Mwape’s team.

Despite the loss, Zambia has made it to the semifinal stage as the best loser ahead of visitors Tanzania and Angola.

The permutations were in favor of the Copper Queens, with the tournament regulations stating that the matches involving the bottom place side in Group A do not count towards the best runner-up calculations.

That left Group B’s Zambia on three points (and +7 goal-difference), Group C’s Tanzania on three points (even goal-difference), and Group A’s Angola on three points (-1 goal-difference).

The semifinals will see the defending champions South Africa clash with Malawi in the second semifinal on Thursday, while before that Botswana will take on Zambia.

    Zambia national soccer team should forget about 1_0 defeat they should concentrate on planning for the next game against Botswana to be played on Thursday in addition coach Bruce Mwape should ensure that weaknesses he saw when we played Malawi are worked on and players briefed about those weaknesses in conclusion our girls still ve chance to win the tournament and I wish them best of luck since their general performance despite being girls is good and reaching that standard is not easy and technical team has done great work
