    Freekick to Zambia on the right and Prosper Chiluya comes to take it.

    Desperate defending from the hosts to keep the ball out as Zambia appeal for a penalty

  5. ZamFoot says:

    12′ Benin 0 – 0 Zambia

    Chiluya loses the ball in his own half and they attack through his side but Dominic Chanda does an excellent job to defend.

    18′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′)

    Excellent recovery by Zambia. Good one-two into the box ends with a super short that left the keeper with no chance

  9. ZamFoot says:

    24′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Salulani Phiri smashed the equalizer in for Zambia.

    Zambia playing well after the goal

  10. Disappointed fan says:

    I have no admiration for this team, including their coach. Team selection is pathetic and so are the coach’s tactics. How long will it take this coach to inderstand the available players? I swear we wont go anywhere with such a porous defence even when the Dakas Mwepus, Sakalas, Chamas are available for the other departments

  11. ZamFoot says:

    27′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Prince Mumba taking the opportunity to start with both hands. Looking influential so far.

    Zambia almost concede but for the poor finishing. Defenders not looking decisive, first Ciluya is beaten on the left, next Tandi is falling over himself in the box

  12. Zimba Ethan says:

    Zamfoot please just post the link so that can watch

  13. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    31′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Zambia concede a free kick in a dangerous position outside the box. They defend the first ball well but Benin are given chance to take a long range short which looks dangerous but is narrowly wide of Chibwe’s goal

  14. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    37′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Zambia not looking dangerous in the final third. A number of misplaced passes in the final third.

    Paul Katema wins the ball in the final third but he goes for goal with Kola and Moses Phiri screaming for the ball. The high press working for Zambia so far

  15. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    45′ Benin 1 – 1 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Salulani gets in a very good attacking position and beats the defender to but goes for goal. Keeper saves and Zambia wins a corner

  16. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    45′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′)

    Goal Alert!

    Zambia make it two with the second ball from a corner.

    Zambia get us underway for the second half

    Two subs made by Zambia.

    Chyril Chibwe is substituted in goal (In player to be confirmed)
    Collins Sikombe comes in (Out player to be confirmed)

  21. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    53′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Zambia win the ball high up in a good position. Moses Phiri trips himself in the box at a crucial time to waste the chance

  22. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    61′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Rogers Kola and Moses Phiri not looking fluid with their combination upfront. Zambia getting in good spaces but lacking the killer combination and runs

  23. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    67′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Double Sub for Zambia

    Moses Phiri out in comes Benson Sakala
    Roger Kola out in comes Brian Mwila

    The earlier subs at half time:
    Gregory Sianjase in for Cyril Chibwe
    Collins Sikombe in for Prince Mumba

  24. Slim says:

    @ Tony Marsh, how do you play with box to box midfielders?! You kick the ball from box to box! Jeez man everything is bad for Chipos as far as you are concerned. How do you mean, suggestions man suggestions

  25. Breden says:

    we need your update

  26. ZamFoot says:

    73′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Freekick to Benin on the left side of Zambia defense.

    Sianjase is injured in the process of clearing the cross.

  27. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    76′ Benin 1 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    With the changes, Zambia is playing 4 3 3 formation.

    Benson Sakala is at the heart of the defensive midfield with Paul Katema and Salulani to the right and left respectively.

    Sautu is playing wide left, while Sikombe is playing on the right with Brian Mwila leading the line in attack

  28. Tony mash says:

    @ slims. The coach fielded four box to box player. Just as good as fielding four isaac chansas in one match. The should play with natural wingers not converted winger.. in the mould of chisamba and felix katongo. These are midfielders who are fast and effect.. likemulenga and musonda. Lubambo.

  29. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    80′ Benin 2 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ 80′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Goal Alert!

    Cibrio Soukou nets his second for the day after Sianjanse had made an excellent save from a close range header. The ball fell to him to finish from close range

  30. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    82′ Benin 2 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ 80′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Zambia seem rattled after conceding. They survive a close shave after the goalkeer comes far off his line near the edge of the area but is beaten to a high ball. Lucky that the header is tame and off the mark

  31. Tony mash says:

    What really shows that micho is blind he failed to see that roja kola is useless. He was last called up for national duty 10 yrs ago.. he is a failure

  32. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    85′ Benin 2 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ 80′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Chipolopolo make a double sub

    Golden Mafwenta and Klings Kangwa in for Sautu and Salulani

    Immediately Zambia come close and miss a header in the box with the keeper beaten

  33. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    90′ Benin 2 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ 80′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    Benin smell blood and want the victory. They are in a hurry to get the ball forward

  34. ZamFoot says:

    International Friendly

    90′ Benin 2 – 2 Zambia (Cibrio Soukou 13′ 80′ | Salulani Phiri 18′, Tandi Mwape 45′)

    A second yellow has been issued to the Zambia technical bench. Emotions seem to be very high

    Game Over

  36. Chindika Popeye Nguni says:

    This team is a disgrace and very useless below average of not poor starting from the technician bench..it reminds me of the early and mid 2000s team of mumamba and the group. They were as useless as this team…we should actually withdraw from the world cup qualifying games to save us from embarrassment

  37. Frog says:

    @ chindika Popeye Nguni
    Are listening to yourself ??? Do you understand the arrangements for friendly matches or have you done any sport in life ????

  38. Slim says:

    @Tony Marsh…the players you mention are unavailable! Any team missing five regulars would struggle let alone missing 10.

  39. Frog says:

    @slim
    Very right any team missing five regulars will definitely struggle

  40. Chindika Popeye Nguni says:

    Weather have done any sports in my life or not it’s your problem. Stick to your opinion and I’ll stick to mine let’s not complicate things. Mind you we all know how to be rude in case you want to go that route

  41. Disappointed fan says:

    Technical bench has lamentanly failed us, starting from team selection to tactics. Now just wait for the disjointed statements from the coach. We met a great team; we have learnt alot, etc . Why jumo into the water if you cant swim? Since when did Zambia become inferior to teams like Senegal and Benin?

  42. Godfrey says:

    Give the team a chance. I think the coach is assessing the players and he will come up with a formidable team.
