U-20 AFCON: Zambia Pip South Africa, Reach First-Ever Final

 

By James Agberebi:

Hosts Zambia have qualified for the final of the 2017 U-20 Africa Cup of Nations following a hard-fought 1-0 win  against Amajita of South Africa after extra-time in Wednesday's semi-final.

The only goal of the game was scored by Edward Chilufya in the 19th minute of extra-time.

This is the first time ever Zambia will qualify for the final of the U-20 AFCON.

They will now wait for the winners of the second semi-final between Senegal and Guinea which comes up on Thursday.

Both the final and the third-place match will be played on Sunday, 12 March.

The quartet of Zambia, South Africa, Senegal and Guinea will represent Africa at this year's FIFA U-20 World Cup in South Korea.
