Zambia are through to the next phase of the 2016 African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers after a tense 6-5 penalties victory over Namibia in Lusaka.

 

Namibia went into the game against the 2009 CHAN bronze medallists Zambia in the Southern Zone of the championship for locally based players, with a 2-1 first-leg advantage.

 

Zambia levelled the tie at 2-2 through a Festus Mbewe header.
Nenkavu Benyamen then gave Namibia the initiative with a goal just before half-time to make it 1-1 on the day and 2-3 on aggregate.
A Winston Kalengo goal on 71 minutes restored Zambia’s lead in Lusaka, making it 3-3 overall and taking the tie to a penalty shoot-out which the hosts won 6-5.
