Viola Nambi scored twice, Fauzia Najjemba and Rita Kivumbi added one apiece for the Crested Cranes’ emphatic victory over Zambia in a pre-tournament game played Tuesday night in Morocco’s western city of Marrakesh.
Zambia, who are also one of the teams due to play in the WAFCON Finals, had no answer for the ruthless Crested Cranes.

Their victory over Zambia is a timely boost for the CECAFA regional champions as they aim to make it out of the group, which consists of highly-rated Burkina Faso, Senegal and hosts Morocco.
