Zambia win 12th COSAFA U-20 title

The Zamba U-20 National team has won their 12th COSAFA U-20 Championship following 1-0 triumph over Mozambique. 

Head coach Chisi Mbewe made three changes to his starting lineup for Sunday afternoon’s final  assignment against Mozambique. 

Mathews Banda came  in for Amon Chulu, Emmanuel Mukosha took the place of Julius Kumwenda while Joseph Sabobo Banda replaced the injured Songa Chipyoka. 

The team was looking to put the icing on the cake after having also qualified to the 2023 Egypt Africa Cup of Nations.

It was Zambia who settled quickly, and looked promising from the word go dominating play. 

The Young Bullets had to however wait for the 35th minute to open the score with Kings Mutandwa finding the back of the net. 

In the second half it was a bit more balanced with Mozambique looking to find a way back. 

Chisi Mbewe’s lads were however equal to the task as they held on to win the match, 1-0 and secure their 12th COSAFA title.

  1. This very good for FAZ president Kamanga! Even when some hypocrites were trying to compare him with Kalusha Bwalya, some of us where well aware of administrative abilities! So what do the critics have to say now? This year alone, Zambia has won the COSAFA Women’s Tournament, the COSAFA women club tournament, the men’s COSAFA tournament, the under 20 COSAFA tournament, came out runners up in Women Africa cup tournament, and also qualified for the world cup finals! What else can one base judgement on? On the lazy men’s football team only? No! Those have their own issues!
