Opposition Watch : Zambia pip Uganda in Kampala

The Zambia national team put recent defeats to one side with a morale boosting 1-0 Victory over Uganda yesterday.
Wedson Nyirenda named a changed side from the last two games by starting goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene, Skiper Rainford Kalaba and prolific striker Collins Mbesuma on the bench.
The coach also played a double pivotal defensive midfield formation which saw Zesco United duo of Misheck Chaila and Kondwani Mtonga start while Russia based midfielder Chisamba Lungu played in central midfield.

Zambia went ahead through Chisamba whose deflected effort off in the 24th minute.
Nyirenda made a few changes to the team later in the second half with Mweene coming in for Jacob Banda, Rodrick Kabwe for Chisamba, Isaac Chansa for Mtonga, Kabaso Chongo for Simon Silwimba, Collins Mbesuma for Roger Kola and Rainford Kalaba for Fwayo Tembo.
Credit to the coach who used all his 6 substitution option in the game to assess as many players as he could in readiness for Limbe.
Zambia will now focus on the game against Cameroon to be played on 12th November.
