U-17 through to COSAFA final after beating Malawi 2-0By Diggers Reporter on 28 Jul 2017
Zambia U17 assistant coach Charles Bwale has described the team’s successful race to the 2017 COSAFA U17 Cup final as a case of unfinished business after their 2016 disqualification.
Zambia beat Malawi 2-0 on Friday to exorcise ghosts of 2016 when they were disqualified from the tournament also held in Mauritius for fielding two overage players after qualifying to the semifinals on a 100 percent run.
“The last we were here,we were disqualified.But this time again we had this opportunity of coming back in Mauritius,” Bwale said.
“So we told ourselves that we were back to bring back what we left behind last year because we had unfinished business in Mauritius.
“So the players and everyone has one thing in their mind, and that is to collect the Cup.It doesn’t matter who we meet, we just want to take the Cup back home.”
Zambia qualified to the final thanks to goals from strikers Lameck Banda in the 3rd minute and Martin Njobvu who added the final goal four minutes later.
Banda’s goal took his tally to 6 and is now firm favourite to collect the Golden Boot.
And Malawi’s defeat was also their first at the tournament after a 100 run to the last four that saw them score nine goals without conceding a goal.
Zambia will meet Mauritius in the final on July 30 in Port Louis after the hosts defeated South Africa 2-0 in the second semifinal on Friday.
