The first game of Didier Gomez in charge of the Lions turns to a victory in this mini tournament organized by his side.
Walter Bwalya scored the first goal at the 39th minute but Al Hilal levelled matter five minutes later to send both teams in a stalemate to half-time.
But Simba took the advantage in the second half with a goal of Chikwende and a brace of Bernard Morrison.
