Zambia defeated neighbours 2-0 on Tuesday evening to mark a promising start for Group D of CHAN in Cameroon.
Collins Sikombe penalty in the 62nd minute following a handball and Emmanuel Chabula’s 82nd minute strike was enough to gift Zambia the win at the Limbe Omnisports Stadium.
Zambia coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic deployed Chabula as a lone man upfront in what seemed a defensive approach.
However, the Chipolopolo appeared more offensive forcing Tanzania goalkeeper Aishi Manula to work overtime.
Chabula finally killed off the game as a contest when scored the cushion goal.
As we went to press, Guinea were set to meet Namibia in another Group D contest.
