Egypt beats Zambia 2 – 0

Egypt this evening capitalised on Zambia’s two first half mistakes in defence to beat the Chipolopolo Boys 2 – 0 in an International Friendly Match played at the Military Academy Stadium in Cairo .

Egypt opened the scoring through Amr Zaki in the 12th minute before Rami Rabiea added a second goal in the 10th minute later.

According to Zambia Football Association, the Chipolopolo Boys re-organised and played well in the second half pressing Egypt in their own half. Egypt defended in numbers and played long balls. They found it difficult to deal with Zambia’s short passing game after the break.

Zambia’s France based striker Emmanuel Mayuka came closest for Zambia but his close range efforts were both parried behind for a corner kick.
