Zambia U17 reach 2017 COSAFA U17 Cup final

Zambia stormed the final of the 2017 COSAFA Under-17 Cup after thumping Malawi 2-0 in Friday’s semifinal match at Stade St Francois Xavier.

Strikers Lameck Banda and Martin Njobvu scored first half goals to end Malawi’s unbeaten record at the youth championship in Madagascar.

This was the first time the Young Flames were conceding goals in Mauritius.

Njobvu opened the scoring after just four minutes before Banda doubled Zambia’s advantage three minutes later.

Mumamba Numba’s boys are now preparing to face either South Africa or Mauritius in Sunday’s final.

South Africa and Mauritius face off later in the second semifinal.
