Ghana’s World Cup qualifying opponents Zambia beat Zimbabwe 2-0 in a friendly at Nkoloma Stadium to pick up their first win in nine months on Sunday.
A brace from Nchanga Rangers striker Bonwell Mwape on his Zambia debut handed Herve Renard his first win since August 8, 2012.
The 23-year-old Mwape was on target in each half the first in the 30th minute before completing his brace 10 minutes before fulltime.
Coincidentally, Zambia’s last win was again over Zimbabwe whom they beat 2-1 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola in another friendly.
Since then, Zambia have picked up six draws and four defeats and came into the friendly on the back of four successive stalemates.
The Chipolopolo are preparing for the resumption of the 2014 World Cup qualifiers in June when they host Sudan and Lesotho.
Zambia are currently one point ahead of Ghana in the qualifiers as they fight to reach the final phase of the qualifiers.
