The Zambia national soccer team has progressed to the finals of the 2019 Cosafa Cup tournament after eliminating perennial rivals Zimbabwe 4 – 2 on penalties. This was after the two teams played out to a goalless draw in regular time.

The Chipolopolo will match on to the final to play Botswana after eliminating the defending champions in a pulsating match that brought out the best of the Zambian defence.

Stand-in coach Aggrey Chiyangi made two changes to the team that struggled to beat Malawi in the quarter final bringing in Clement Mwape for Gift Zulu at right back and Jack Chirwa for Webster Muzaza in midfield.

The line up was as follows:

Sebastian Mwange, Clement Mwape, Adrian Chama, Tandi Mwape, Mwila Phiri – Benson Sakala, Jackson Chirwa – Austin Muwowo – Ernest Mbewe, Tapson Kaseba, Lazarous Kambole

Substitutes:

Gift Zulu, Lawrence Chungu, Webster Muzaza, Chitiya Mususu, Bruce Musakanya, Clement Mulashi, Lawrence Mulenga, Emmanuel Chabula, Youremember Banda, Isaac Shamujompa
