Goals from Bornwell Mwape, Aaron Katebe and Nathan Sinkala handed Zambia a 3-0 win over Ghana in the plate semifinal of the Cosafa Cup at the Royal Bafokeng Sports Palace on Wednesday night.

Zambia were the better side form the onset and made their pressure tell with the opening goal in the 24th minute after goalmouth scramble inside the Ghana box following a corner-kick ended with Mwape poking the ball home, 1-0.

Zambia doubled their lead four minutes later after Katebe turned home another corner-kick following some more poor defending from the Black Stars, 2-0.

Zambia made certain of the victory three minutes before the break when Sinkala powered the ball home from the edge of the box, 3-0.

The second half saw Ghana trying to fight their way back into the game, but they were unable to penetrate a well-organised Zambian defence.

The win sees Zambia into the plate final of the competition where they will face either South Africa or Malawi.
