2012 Afcon winning Chipolopolo has beaten Barcelona Legends by 3 goals to nil in an exhibition match played at a sold out Heroes Stadium.
COLLINS MBESUMA, JAMES CHAMANGA and CLIFFORD MULENGA scored to give Zambia the win.
The match was preceded by a standing ovation for World Cup and Balon D’or winner RONALDINHO by fans of the beautiful game.
It took Zambia 6 minutes to find the back of the net when MBESUMA took advantage of a defensive error by Barca.
Fans were treated to a show of skill and dribbles as RAINFORD KALABA and CHISAMBA LUNGU made headways for Zambia, while RONALDINHO and PATRICK KLUIVERT danced past the Zambian defence.
CHAMANGA doubled the lead with 66 minutes played, curling one past BARCA keeper GUZMAN after several changes.
With time winding down, substitute KALUSHA BWALYA set up MULENGA to score Zambia’s third with 6 minutes left on the clock.
The Barca Legends are expected to tour some parts of the country on Friday, before leaving the country over the weekend.
