The Zambia squad has been kicked out of the on-going Cosafa Cup –U17 tournament in Mauritius for age cheating.

Zambia had won Group B but Kenya made a complaint accusing them of using over age players after suffering a 4-0 loss.

After investigations by Cosafa and the Mauritius FA a decision to disqualify Zambia was made and Kenya will now meet South Africa in the semi-final of the tournament. Malawi will clash with Namibia in the other semi-final.

ZIFA did not send a team for the regional tournament due to financial constraints.
