The home side opened the scoring after 16 minutes as Patson Daka slotted home from close range, after Fashion Sakala was initially denied.

Zambia doubled their lead in the 35th minute as Edward Chilufya, who scored against Amajita, got his side's second goal

The Senegalese side struggled to mount any serious attempts at the Zambian for most of the encounter.

Nonetheless, the score remained 2-0 to the tournament hosts as they were crowned champions of Africa.

Zambia and Senegal have already qualified for the U20 World Cup, along with South Africa and Guinea.
