The 20-member squad coached by Carol Kanyemba left Kenneth Kaunda International Airport in Lusaka aboard Air Tanzania at 13h15.

The Copper Princesses are carrying a 5-nil advantage from the first leg played at Nkoloma Stadium with goals from skipper Blessings Zangose Zulu on a brace while Saliya Mwanza, Namute Chileshe Bwalya and Ruth Muwowo contributed a goal each which puts the lasses in a fair position going into this Weekend’s return match.
