Honour Janza made a promising start as Zambia coach on Saturday in his first game in charge after a 3-1 home win over Sudan.

Zambia were convincing in their first home game at their new home base at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

The highlight of the friendly also saw Rainford Kalaba handed the captaincy for the first time and led by example with a great performance in midfield.

Nkana defender Christopher Munthali put Zambia ahead in the 14th minute.

TP Mazembe striker Given Singuluma headed in the second in the 34th minute to give Zambia a 2-0 lead into the break.

Sudan mounted an early second half wave before Zambia came back strongly in the last 20 minutes.

However, Ibrahim Salah scored for Sudan from the penalty spot in two minutes deep into stoppage time but Mukuka Mulenga fired in from close range a minute later to put the result beyond doubt.

Munyau (Nsabata), Kabaso, Munthali (Adrian Chama), Nyambe, Roderick Kabwe,
Kalaba, Donashano Malama, Musakanya (Situmbeko), Fwayo (Kampamba), Sakuwaha (Kalengo), Singuluma (Mukuka)
