In his first match since his appointment in Zambia following the departure of Herve Renard, Patrice Beaumelle may smile. The French engineer and his team won 2-1 Wednesday against Uganda at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Lusaka. And yet, things started bad.
The Cranes took the advantage after the break by Emmanuel Okwi. But a single man is going to rock the meeting for the Chipolopolo. Kangwa Evans scored twice to offer a satisfactory 2-1 win to Zambians.
Note in this meeting, the injury of Zambian goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene replaced during the game. It is his club Mamelodi Sundonws (South Africa) who will rather not be happy.
Zambia: Mweene, Nkausu, Chama, Sunzu, Kabwe, Sinkala, Lungu C, C Katongo, Kalaba, Mayuka, Kola
Uganda: Onyango, Wadada, Mwesigwa, Isinde, Muleme, G Kizito Aucho, Oloya, Guma Okwi, D Sserunkuma
