South Africa crowned champions of the four team tournament after beating hosts Zambia

Zambia national team suffered a two nil defeat to finish second in the final of the four team tournament played at Levy Mwanawasa stadium on Saturday, March 24th.

Mamelodi Sundowns forward Percy Tau drew first blood in the 15th minute after Toaster Nsabata spilled the ball into his path and the attacker made no mistake as he put South Africa in the driving seat.

Fashion Sakala, Enock Mwepu and Justin Shonga tried to pull something quickly for the Copper Bullets but to no avail. The defence was in shambles and Percy Tau could have made it two before the break as he found himself with only the keeper to beat but his finishing let him down.

Coach Wedson Nyirenda Nyirenda made a number of changes with Lazarous Kambole coming in for Brian Mwila, Enerst Mbewe for Fashion Sakala, Ronald Kampamba for Augustine Mulenga and Emmanuel Banda for Solomon Sakala but they could not help Chipolopolo.

Second half substitute Lebo Motiba put the match beyond Zambia when he got on the end of a Keagan Dolly pass to score Bafana Bafana’s second goal.

Earlier Angola beat Zimbabwe on post match to penalties to finish third after their match ended 2-2.
