Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda this afternoon inspired 10-man Chipolopolo to a first World Cup win beating Algeria 3-1 in a Group B fixture played at Heroes stadium in Lusaka.
It is the first time Zambia has defeated Algeria in a World Cup qualifier. The win is also the first in three matches for Zambia.
Brian Mwila scored a brace with Mwepu sealing the victory in the final stages of the match that saw winger Fashion Sakala sent off for a second yellow.
Algeria’s Ibrahimi had earlier reduced the scoreline with a powerful drive that beat goalie Kennedy Mweene.
