Mayuka makes third 2013 Saints appearence


Striker Emmanuel Mayuka made his third successive Premiership appearance on Saturday for Southampton since returning from the Africa Cup in January.

Mayuka came on in the last 25 minutes for 14th placed Southampton in their 1-0 away loss at fifth positioned Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday.

And in Portugal, defender Emmanuel Mbola did not play for Porto reserves over the weekend for whom he has made just one appearance in 2013.

In Romania, Fwayo Tembo played the full 90 minutes in fifth placed Astra Giurgiu’s scoreless away draw with 10th placed Otelul Galati on Saturday while in Belgium on Friday, his former EduSport teammate striker Rodgers Kola was on the bench in KAA Gent’s 1-1 away draw at Mons.

However, there was good news in Holland where striker Jacob Mulenga on Sunday scored his 13th goal of the season for Dutch side Utrecht in a 4-2 away win over Heerenveen.

And in China, Christopher Katongo played the full 90 minutes but was not on target in promotion leaders Henan Jianye’s 3-0 away win at 10th placed Shijiazhuang.


  1. Mayuko has not scored in over a year for both his country and club..that says a lot kid. real deal or hype?

  2. The Kid needs to visit independence stadium and get another Dose of inspiration he had during AFCON 2012..and PF should stop harassing RB. he was good for Zambian soccer, the moment they started harassing RB Zambian stopped winning

  3. #1 It is Mayuka not Mayuko ahole. and #2 stop confusing your PF, RB stupidity with football. The young man has appeared in the premiership more than any Zambian has ever played.

  4. Muyaka should come back home to:
    a. Join Barotse Football Club
    b. Continue with night school to finish grade 12, so he can speak write and understand english.
    c. He must be catsrated cos. one cannot be active in soccer at that young age with kids from 4 different women, one each
    d. Must pay the ng’anga the money he owes him for making a splendid performance in afcon 2012 by scoring a lone goal to book us to finals
    Join politics if football yakanga, their is chance to become a sports minister in new barotse government.

  5. The young man is gaining weight and not fit at all! I watched the gae and was upset with him(as Arsenal supporter) for he was to blame for bale’s goal.The chap lost the ball and was jogging and not covering bale leading to the goal…useless!

  6. I wacthed that game and unfortunately Mayuka wase partly to blame for the goal. He watched Bale pass near him and had a chance to stop him. Three steps away from Mayuka the guy (Bale) shoot at goal and it went in. Sadly even the commentator wondered why mayuka did not make any effort to stop Bale.
