Zambia beat South Korea 4-2

JOHANNESBURG - Zambia sent out a strong message ahead of their departure for the African Nations Cup finals in Angola by beating World Cup finalists South Korea 4-2 in a friendly international on Saturday.

Felix Katongo (pictured), Rainsford Kalaba, James Chamanaga and Noel Chivuta scored as Zambia took advantage of Korean errors.

Katongo and Kalaba had Zambia two goals up before Kim Jung-woo pulled one back in the 34th minute. Chamanga extended the lead just before the hour and Chivuta added a fourth on 71 minutes. Korea got a late goal from Koo Ja-cheol.

South Korea were in South Africa for a week of high altitude and now head to Spain for two more internationals later this month. Zambia play Tunisia in their opening Group D match at the Nations Cup in Lubango on Wednesday.
