2023 WWC: Zambia Sign Off With First World Cup Goal And Win

Zambia won a Women’s World Cup match for the first time with a 3-1 victory over Costa Rica on Monday to end their debut tournament on a high.

The lowest-ranked team at the competition were spanked 5-0 by Spain and Japan as their chances of getting out of Group C ended in rapid fashion.

But defender Lushomo Mweemba scored after just three minutes in their final group game against Costa Rica in Hamilton, Zambia’s first goal ever at the World Cup.

Then skipper and star striker Barbra Banda made it 2-0 with a penalty just after the half-hour.

Costa Rica, also already eliminated and chasing a first victory at the World Cup, pulled one back through Melissa Herrera two minutes after half-time.

Zambia made the game safe in injury time when Racheal Kundananji got a third.
