Zambia scored the opening goal in the first half of the game through midfielder rainford kalaba via a well taken free kick by janas sakuwaha in the Sudanese half.
In the second half chipolopolo boys added to their tally when the Sudanese goal-keeper ekram Ali fumbled and gifted the zambian captain Christopher katongo a chance to make it 2-0.
A third goal from james chamanga is all zambia needed to make it 3-0 in the 86th minute.
Zambia will now play against the per-tournament favorites ghana,on wednesday night before ivory coast play against mali in another semi-final match.
