Zambia 1-3 Nigeria
ZAMBIA Under-23 Olympic dream was last night shattered after conceding silly goals that gifted Nigeria a come from behind win at the African Cup Of Nations (AFCON) in Cairo, Egypt.
The defending champions withered a first half barrage from Zambia to win 3-1 and go second in the group behind leaders South Africa who earlier beat Cot d’Ivoire 1-0 to go top and Zambia are at the basement.
Zambia were quick off the block and found a lot of joy down the flanks as they broke with pace and it rattled the young Eagles with Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala miscommunication in the first minute leading to the clash of heads that left Daka bandaged after a stoppage.
