Hosts Zambia beat Senegal to win the Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations

Hosts Zambia turned on the style to lift the Under-20 Africa Cup of Nations after beating Senegal 2-0 in the final at the Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

For Senegal it was a tale of double disappointment having lost the 2015 final on home soil against Nigeria.

There had been fears that Zambia, who had looked impressive all tournament, may crack under the weight of expectation but the junior Chipolopolo held their cool to go into the break leading 2-0.

Senegalese goalkeeper Lamine Sarr made two horrendous errors that a merciless Zambian frontline punished him for.
