The Zambian national football team, Chipolopolo was on Tuesday afternoon beaten 2 – 0 at home by Tunisia in a Qatar 2022 World Cup qualifying match.

The visitors scored a goal on either side of the half buried the Chipolopolo at their local turf.

The defeat came despite the hosts putting the visitors on the back pedal for the better part of the match and creating more chances.

Coach Beston Chambeshi made two forced changes to the starting XI bringing in Dickson Chapa and Brian Mwila for Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka who were not available for the match.

The duo had to travel back to their bases after the game against Mauritania.

Zambia went down after Wahbi Khazri converted from the spot in the 8th minute. This was after Benedict Chepeshi was punished for a handball in the box.
