U23 back home from Egypt

The Zambia U-23 National Team has returned home after a disappointing AFCON qualifier loss away in Egypt. 


The young Copper Bullets arrived at the Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe Airport shortly after 13:00 hrs. 

Egypt scored two second half goals to beat Zambia 2-0 in Cairo on Wednesday night in a CAF U23 African Cup of Nations qualifier to carry an advantage into the second leg. 

Goals from Ibrahim Adel and Abdurahman Atef were enough to give the young pharaohs a 2-0 caution over the Osward Mutapa coached Zambian side. 

Zambia hosts  Egypt in the return leg on Sunday at Ndola’s Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
