Zambia: Chipolopolo Come From Behind To See Off Comoros

Wilson Mulinda-Zambia has redeemed it’s hopes of qualifying to the 2023 AFCON after beating Comoros by 2 goals to 1.

The Chipolopolo had to come from behind after conceding early in the match.

A mixup in communication between THANDI MWAPE and goalkeeper TOASTER NSABATA resulted in Comoros taking the lead through EL-FARDOU BEN MOHAMED in the 13th minute.

That early deficit seemed to spark life into the Chipolopolo as they took control of the game.

Winger LUBAMBO MUSONDA tried an effort from range with halftime approaching but was beaten out by the Comoros shot stopper.

Skipper ENOCK MWEPU pulled the team level deep into first half stoppage time with a clever finish after controlling and shooting past Comoros defenders.

Comoros started the second half stronger with a series of attacks but luck was on the side of the Chipolopolo.

Chipolopolo Coach ALJOSA ASANOVIC rang the changes in the second half, bringing on KLINGS KANGWA, LAMECK BANDA and KELVIN KAMPAMBA.

A moment of magic from KANGWA gave the Chipolopolo the lead as he curled a free kick into the top left corner with 2 minutes of normal time left after he was brought down.

The Victory sees Zambia move from bottom of the table ahead of the next round of qualifiers in September.
