In July 2021, the Copper Queens participated at the Olympic games in Tokyo, Japan.
They played against Brazil, Netherlands and China.
But this time around, they have qualified to the Australia/New Zealand World Cup, following a 4 – 2 post-match penalty Women’s Africa Cup of Nations (WAfCON) quarter final victory over Senegal.
The match ended 1 all in the regulation 90 minutes and 30 minutes of extra time.
The Zambian ladies have now progressed into the WAfCON semi-final, earning themselves a historic 2023 World Cup qualification.
Before today’s victory against Senegal, the Copper Queens, in their Group B stage, drew 0 – 0 with Cameroon, beat Tunisia 1 – 0 and wrapped up with an emphatic 4 – 1 win over Togo.
The high-flying Copper Queens are coached by Bruce Mwape, the same man who was in charge of the team at last year’s Tokyo Olympic games.
Charity Nthala and Florence Mwila are the Copper Queens’ assistant coaches.
