Far short of the qualities we saw both teams produce in their respective first group games in group D, Zambia and Guinea were indeed poor throughout the first half of their bout.
Guinea took matters into their hands in the second half by multiplying beautiful passes and were rewarded from a deflected shot that fell pretty well for Victor kantabadouno (21) at the 56th minute in the Zambian 18 yards and made proper use by scoring the opener.
Series of changes were made by both coaches as the game progressed, however one became more effective from Zambia when coach Mulitin Sredojevic brought in Spencer Sautu (20) with 10 minutes left on the watch.
Spencer Sautu rewarded his coach’s confidence by making use of some sloppy defending from the Guinean defensive compartment in the 86th to put the match level on scores with a fine header that went to the right but left goalkeeper Nouhan snapping from the extreme left side of his pole.
Both teams still top group D after playing two games but will have to secure qualification for the knock-out stages depending on the outcome between Namibia and Tanzania who battle for their first points tonight.
