Namibia lost 4-1 to Zambia in the Metropolitan Cosafa U20 final, which was played in Gaborone, Botswana on Sunday.
The Zambians started their onslaught by going on the attack, which resulted in the first corner kick of the final that was taken by Roderick Kabwe, but it did not yield a result.
Five minutes later, Willy Stephanus took Namibia’s first corner but captain Sidney Urikhob failed to get the ball in the back of the net but instead the effort went over the crossbar.
13 minutes into the match, the Zambians through Chaka Lungu scored the first goal of the match.
Namibia finished fifth in the Nations Cup netball tournament which recently ended in Singapore after they beat India 72-23 in a fifth place play off.
