Spirited Chipolopolo beat Sudan

Sudan vs Zambia friendly

A spirited Chipolopolo gave it all in Khartoum to beat Sudan 1-0 in the final match of the four international friendlies lined up.

A Chipolopolo boys team comprising of mainly local players began the FIFA-approved international schedule with a clash against Senegal. Zambian lost 3-1 before traveling to Benin where the Micho tutored side lost 3-2. The Chipolopolo boys then shifted camp to Sudan where they lost 3-2 in a practice match before.

Micho started with Gregory Sianjase in goal while investing confidence in Prosper Chiluya, Dominic Chanda, Isaac Shamujompa and Nchepeshi lined up in defence Benson Sakala, Salulani Phiri, Paul Katema and Spencer Sautu completed the midfield. Rodger Kola and Brian Mwila got the front line deployment.

Sudan however bossed the second half with pace, control and total dominance as Zambia sat back to soak the pressure.

It was a tactical change that saw Kola rested for Sikombe which changed the game’s narrative as Zambia began to pull strings in midfield with more character, expresssion and creativity. The introduction of Moses Phiri further injected pace and a dose of pernetration impetus and when Amitty Shamende came in, it was only to pay off everything right Micho’s charges had been doing in the second half.
