Rainford Kalaba was the only Zambian star in action for TP Mazembe in the CAF Champions League on Sunday in Sudan.
The Zambia captain played the full 90 minutes in Mazembe’s 1-0 away loss to Al Hilal in Khartoum in both teams penultimate Group A match.
His compatriots midfielder Nathan Sinkala and striker Given Singuluma were both on the bench.
Mazembe are second in Group A tied on 8 points with Al Hilal.
A draw for the DR Congo club in their final game against third placed Moghreb Tetouan of Morocco, who recently signed defender Aaron Katebe on a two-year deal, on September 11 will be enough for them to advance to the semifinals.
