Zambia senior women, U-20 national teams soarBy Abraham Kalito on 8 Aug 2019
The senior women’s national soccer team and the U-20 side have both qualified to the finals of the inaugural COSAFA championship which is taking place concurrently in South Africa.
The senior women team beat Botswana by four goal to nil while the U-20 side beat Zimbabwe by a goal to nil.
Striker Hellen Mubanga scooped the player of the match accolade having scored one during the match. It is Mubanga’s second accolade in the tournament having won the award in the second group match against Namibia last Saturday when she scored a brace.
Current top striker at the tournament Rachael Nachula scored a brace to take her tally to 10 goals in four matches.
Meanwhile, Thelma Phiri was named Player of the Match as Zambia defeated Zimbabwe by a goal to nil. She scored the only goal that catapulted Zambia into the finals of the competition.
Mealwhile speaking following the victory, FAZ vice president Rix Mweemba said the women’s teams deserve the credit as they have proved doubters wrong.
“There were a lot that were doubting our women’s teams. Now is the time for them to hide because the team has performed beyond their expectations. There is always time to hide, so let them hide now. We are happy with the girls, they have done us proud and we shall continue to rally behind them,” he said.
