ZAMBIA were yesterday left staring elimination from the Council of Southern Africa Football Association (COSAFA) Youth Championship after battling to a goalless draw with Malawi and coach Mumamba Numba admitted that qualifying for the semi-finals is tricky.

Smarting from a 2-0 defeat to Uganda, Zambia needed to beat Malawi to bounce back in contention for a semi-final slot but were blunt at goal.
Uganda have four points at par with Malawi but the former have a better goal aggregate.
