A must win match;Copper Queens vs Costa Rica

With Spain and Japan already occupying the top 2 positions in Group C, Costa Rica and Zambia will face each other in a bid to bow out of the 2023 FIFA women’s world cup competition with at least a point at 9:00 AM today at Waikato stadium 

Costa Rica failed to win their opening 2 games against Spain and Japan as they lost to both teams 3-0 and 2-0 respectively. While Zambia lost 5-0 twice against Spain and Japan. That leaves Costa Rica in 3rd place with 0 points and a goal difference of -5, while Zambia are 4th in the group with -10 goal difference.

Zambia and Costa Rica met once in 2014 at a junior level where Zambia won 2-1.Speaking on today’s game,Coach Mwape did not hide the fact the game won’t be easy as both teams will be looking forward for their first point. Mwape also hinted on using Costa Rica’s weak defence as an advantage to score more goals.

With captain Barbra Banda leading the attack, Catherine Musonda is on the goal post after missing Spain’s match. Racheal Kundananji will be attacking from left wing while Susan Banda is on the midfield.
