Zambia, Cameroon play one-all draw in international friendly match ahead AFCON24


Zambia has played out a one-all draw against Cameroon in an international friendly in Saudi Arabia.

The match which was played behind closed doors at King Abdallah Stadium in Jeddah was being used as a preparatory match for both teams ahead of the Africa Cup of Nations in Ivory Coast which kicks off this Saturday, January 13.

In-form Chipolopolo striker Patson Daka opened the scoring for Zambia in the 11th minute.

However, Cameroon restored parity in the 20th minute when Yongwa Ngameni tapped in from close range.

Both teams had a chance to claim victory but the match was destined for stalemate.

Rally Bwalya and Fashion Sakala both came close to scoring while Kemen could have won it for the west Africans.

Next week Wednesday, Chipolopolo will open their Group F, Africa Cup campaign against neighbours Democratic Republic of Congo.

Morocco and Tanzania round off the composition of Group F.
