Zambia Draw With Sudan

Zambia and Sudan drew 1-1 at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola, Zambia on Saturday.

Zambia knew that a win was required to maintain their lead at the top of their group. They entered the game leading Ghana by one point on the log, and dropping points would have allowed the Black Stars to snatch their place.

Jacob Mulenga scored twice against Lesotho a week ago, which earned him a place in the starting XI. Mudather El Tahir led the line for Sudan after he scored the only goal for the Falcons of Jediane when they lost 3-1 for Ghana last week.

Zambia started well, earning an early corner which sailed over everyone in the box. They soon began to dominate proceedings but could not find a goal. The first half saw very few genuine chances and both keepers were not troubled often.

The second half started with more urgency as Chipolopolo chased the opening goal. They were clearly missing the creative juices of Rainford Kalaba in midfield as they failed to create any real chances. It finally came in the 70th minute, thanks to Jacob Mulenga, who thundered the ball into the back of the net.

But Sudan struck back almost immediately, with Malik Mohammed scoring two minutes after the game’s opener. But neither team could go on and clinch the game. It ended 1-1, leaving the door open for Ghana to go ahead of Zambia tomorrow if they win their game.
