Zambia have qualified to the 2015 African Youth Championships after a 1-0 home win over Malawi in Lusaka on Saturday.

Hector Chilombo's side advanced to the Senegal finals 3-1 on aggregate following a 2-1 first leg win in Blantyre on August 16.

A second half goal by Nchanga Rangers midfielder Larry Bwalya secured Zambia's ticket to next March's finals in Dakar.

However, Zambia did have the ball in the back of the net in the 24th minute through Charles Zulu at Nkoloma Stadium but his effort was disallowed.

Zulu then turned provider for Bwalya to score the winning goal in the 54th minute to send Zambia through.

This is Zambia's sixth African Youth Championship appearance and their first since 2007.
