Namibia managed to hold ambitious Zambia under-17 national team to a 0-0 drew in the 2009 CAF under 17 junior championship qualifier.
This match acted a punctuation during the period of national mourning for the late Dr Mwanawasa.
Scores of Lusaka residents filled the Woodlands stadium in Lusaka where it was expected that Zambia would triumph because the match was being played in honour of the late President.
However, the expectation was skewed away because the Zambian lads were so blunt that they could not see where the back of the Namibian net was placed.
Most of their shots in that direction where mere kicks and diversions in futility and many degrees away from the back of the net, which kept many spectators on their toes.
This match also acted a diversion of attention from the monotony on the current political succession of Dr Mwanawasa.
Zambia takes on Togo this wednesday in the 2010 world cup qualifier at Konkola stadium on the Copperbelt.
