Katongo Toasts Victory at Levy Stadium
Chris Katongo has said he is overjoyed to have scored the winning and Zambia’s first-ever goal at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium today.
Katongo scored the game’s lone goal in the 15th minute of the first half in their win over Ghana in the two sides’ 2014 World Cup Group D qualifier played in Ndola.
“I scored the first goal in this stadium it is history and no one will take it away from me, I have given the team the three points,” Katongo said.
Zambia’s win comes a week after they lost 2-0 away to Sudan in their opening Group D match in Khartoum.
Herve Renard’s side s now on three points, level with Group D leaders Ghana who have a superior goal difference.
Meanwhile Sudan might take command of Group D on Sunday should they beat Lesotho away in Maseru in the two sides second pool match.
