Barbra Banda nets two goals to help send Zambia to the final round of the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

Copper Queens captain Barbra Banda scored a brace to help Zambia win 2-0 over Morocco to send them to the 2024 Olympics, their second consecutive Olympic women’s football tournament. 

After a 1-2 defeat at home to Morocco five days ago in the first leg of the 2024 Paris Olympics qualifiers, Zambia earned their qualification this morning after beating Morocco 3-2 on aggregate.

Banda’s penalty in the first period of extra-time secured Zambia a 2-0 win. Banda scored the first goal seven minutes before halftime and kept her team in the tie to sent the match to extra time.

Having made their historic debut at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, Zambia joins 12 other teams at the Paris 2024 Olympics and will be in Group B alongside the USA, Germany, and Australia.

The Olympic women’s football tournament will begin on Thursday, July 25, 2024.
