World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Zambia will not get carried away despite Mauritania win – Chambeshi

The Chipolopolo got off to a flying start away from home and will now prepare to host Tunisia on Tuesday

Zambia coach Beston Chambeshi has maintained a cautious approach despite his team winning their 2022 World Cup qualifying opener 2-1 against Mauritania on Friday.

The Chipolopolo registered a good start in their Group B campaign after goals from Enock Mwepu and Prince Mumba enabled them to beat the home team, who pulled one back through Mamadou Niass at Stade Olympique in Nouakchott.

It was Mwepu who scored the opener with only 10 minutes played after applying a cool finish and in the second half, Mumba fastened onto a cross from Patson Daka to double their advantage in the 57th minute before Niass scored for Mauritania in the 69th minute.
