2 August 2019 – The action was superb in the inaugural COSAFA Women’s Under-20 Championship matches that were played at the Gelvandale Stadium.

The two games played were in Group B, where East African guest nation Tanzania came out 2-0 winners against Botswana.

Opa Sanga gave them the lead, before Thuto Radipitse put the ball into her own net for the Young Mares.

The second game was more emphatic as Zambia cruised to a 4-0 win over Eswatini, with Maylan Mulenga bagging two goals and Mary Mambwe another.

Eswatini defender Ncedo Gamedze was also the scorer of an unfortunate own goal.

The action will resume in Group A on Saturday when hosts South Africa take on Namibia in a crunch game in that pool between two sides that won their opening games.

The match will kick-off at 14h00 (12h00 GMT).

Before that there is a clash between Zimbabwe and Mozambique at 11h00 (09h00 GMT). In this competition the top two teams in each pool advance, so there is still all to play for.
