Ten-man Zambia defeat Algeria 3-1 in Lusaka. Brian Mwila ’s first-half and Enock Mwepu ’s delightful low finish on 88’ sees the Copper Bullets pick up their first win of the CAF Group B campaign.

After a dominant first-half performance, Zambia suffered a scare after the break when Yacine Brahimi pulled one back for Les Verts on 53 minutes. The Copper Bullets were then reduced to 10 men when Fashion Sakala was shown a second yellow. But the hosts looked in firm control and they sealed the deal on 88 minutes when Mewpu grabbed the third.
