Copper Queens have also broken records, leaving the remaining teams with their jaws dropped as 2 major records were recorded at the game. The first being by Lushomo Mweemba who scored the fastest goal at the tournament in just 3′ minutes when she headed home a free header to give Zambia the first ever goal at the tournament
Barbra Banda had a signature record breaking, scoring the 1,000 goal of the tournament in the 31st minutes giving Zambia a 2 goal lead before the break, converting from the spot.
Costa Rica tried to fight back , in the 47th minute shortly after the break when Herrera pulled one back giving the Copper Queens a wake up call.
The Zambian side held on till Kundananji buried a goal in the added time to seal the deal. As the girls head back home, those that are left have had a feel of what they are capable of. Congratulations to our girls.
