Zambia opens sexual abuse inquiry in women's game

Zambia's Football Association (Faz) has opened an investigation into allegations of sexual abuse in the women's game following various claims on social media.

The news comes just two months after the highs of Zambia qualifying for the Women's World Cup for the first time in the team's history.

"Although we have no record of official complaints from anyone on the allegations, we consider these allegations very serious and have opened an inquiry into the matter," Faz General Secretary Adrian Kashala said in a statement.
