Zambia would have also been delighted with their start to the African Nations Championship, as they also picked up a win on the opening round of fixtures.

Collins Sikombe scored the opener in the game for Zambia from the penalty spot in the 64th minute. They were able to wrap up a comfortable win in the final ten minutes, as Emmanuel Chabula doubled the advantage. However, this could be a more trying fixture for them.
