Chipolopolo have jumped into second position in Group H of the 2023 Africa Cup qualifying campaign after coming from behind to overcome Comoros 2-1 at home in Lusaka.
Coach Aljosa Asanovic’s boys have three points from two games.
Zambia on Tuesday night recorded their first win of the 2023 Africa Cup Group H qualifying campaign.
The win at the National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka saw Zambia bounce back after Friday’s 3-1 loss to Ivory Coast in their opening Group H match last Friday.
Comoros shocked Zambia with an early goal scored by El-Fardou Ben Mohamed just after 13 minutes on Tuesday.
Zambia captain Enock Mwepu equalised just seconds before half time break.
Second half substitute Klings Kangwa came off the bench to score a late stunning winner in the 88th minute via a free kick.
Meanwhile, Group H leaders Ivory Coast faces bottom side Lesotho away on Thursday.
Comoros beat Lesotho 2-0 in the other opening Group H match earlier on Friday afternoon.
