She-polopolo suffer embarrassing defeat against Nigeria

NIGERIA 4 ZAMBIA 0
THE She-polopolo yesterday failed to redeem Zambia’s tattered football image when they crashed to an embarrassing defeat to defending champions Nigeria at the Women Africa Cup of Nations in Ghana.
The defeat, coming on the heels of their 5-0 opening victory against Equatorial Guinea, left the girls with one unenviable task – to beat South Africa’s Banyana Banyana to have any chance of reaching the semi-finals.
On a day it was thought the She-polopolo would make up for the Chipolopolo’s ignominious failure to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations, the girls were out of shape and would have lost by a cricket score had goalkeeper Hazel Nali not pulled off superb saves.
The Bruce Mwape-drilled side which employed defensive tactics in the early minutes, succumbed to a well-coordinated Nigeria that were undoubtedly the better side and would have harvested more had they converted only half their chances.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
