Zambia’s Hopes of Qualifying To The FIFA World Cup Were Dealt
Zambia‘s hopes of reaching Qatar 22 were dealt another huge blow on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Equatorial Guinea in a CAF second-round 2022 Fifa World Cup qualifying match at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Chipolopolo finally found the opener in the 65th minute of the match following a moment of individual brilliance from Fashion Sakala.
The Rangers forward burst between two defenders and into the area, danced past another before firing an unstoppable shot into the back of the net.
But having done all the hard work, Zambia went to sleep at a set-piece situation and were duly punished in the 82nd minute.
Federico Bikoro shrugged off his marker before heading the ball home to earn the visitors a point.
Victory for Tunisia in Nouakchott on Sunday evening will end Zambia‘s World Cup hopes.
