CO LONDONDERRY 3 LUSAKA 1
Unfortunately a night sleeping on the floor of Copenhagen airport seemed to take its toll of the African outfit, who lost 3-1 to the boys from Co Londonderry in the Premier Section opener on Monday.
ith only 11 players in the country the brave Zambians battled the torrential Coleraine rain, but succumbed to an impressive performance from Damien McNamee’s boys.
Dylan McCorkell gave Derry the lead mid-way through the first half only for Lusaka to equalise before half-time. Derry took the lead mid-way through the second half when Sheldon Woods took advantage of some poor goalkeeping by the Zambian shot stopper. McCorkell grabbed his second of the match five minutes before the end of the game with a fine half-volley, 15 yards from goal.
