Nkana’s teenage prodigy striker Reynold Kampamba this afternoon made an impressive start on senior debut scoring a brace in Zambia’s 4-1 win over Goa Select at Nehru Stadium in Goa.
However, Herve Renards side first had to shrug off an early second half scare after Goa Select had taken a 1-0 lead in the 49th minute after a scoreless first half.
19 year old Kampamba, who has scored 9 times in all competition for Nkana this season, lead Zambia’s rally with the visitors equalizer in the 55th minute after benefitting from a Jimmy Chisenga cross.
His striker partner at Nkana Evans Kangwa also scored on his debut when he put Zambia ahead two minutes after the hour mark thanks to an assistant from Russian based striker Chisamba Lungu of Ural Sverdlovsk Oblast.
Kampamba completed his brace with a cool finish on 75 minutes before Chisamba wrapped-up Zambia’s comeback two minutes from fulltime.
Zambia will complete their week-long training camp on Tuesday at the same venue with another friendly against the India national team.
The team flies back to Zambia on Wednesday.
