Zambia is placed third/fourth in group K of the Afcon 2019 qualifiers. Guinea Bissau and Mozambique takes charge of the group with 4 points each. First round saw Zambia play Mozambique losing by 1-0 at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola on 10th June 2017.

The single point Chipolopolo are enjoying is from the recent draw result picked in Namibia. Also it was the fixture that marked as the first game for Sven since taking charge of Zambia. Justin Shonga late equaliser saved the Sven bullets from total embarrassment.
