Senegal 1-2 Zambia – Highlights


Zambia took advantage of some shambolic Senegal defending to claim a surprise win over the Group A favourites in the African Nations Cup.

Amara Traore’s much-fancied side were all at sea in the first period as Emmanuel Mayuka gave Chipolopolo the lead after 12 minutes and Rainford Kalaba made it 2-0 eight minutes later.

Senegal were rejuvenated by a trio of substitutions after the break and it was one of the new men, Dame N’Doye, who pulled one back in the 74th minute, but they could not find an equaliser.
