Fashion Sakala nearly equalized at 20th minute but his effort was saved by Ahamada Ali Nadhoim.

The host Zambia who struggled in controlling the ball and seem to be always second on the ball in this half, kept pushing for an equalizer but nothing materialized until 40th minute.

As the half promised to end in a draw, Zambia Captain Enock (the Computer) Mwepu scored at 45th minute to put the matters at parity.

However, Chipolopolo boys came a changed side in the second half after realizing that they lost 1-3 away in Abidjan against Ivory Coast and that they needed nothing less than a win at Heroes Stadium.

They kept Comoros Island under siege.
