Lwandamina happy with Zesco’s execution of Juba job

Sports Lwandamina happy with Zesco's execution of Juba job

Zesco United coach George Lwandamina says Al Ghazala gave them a tough time on Friday but that the better team advanced in the CAF Champions League.

Zesco scored a last minute goal on Friday away in Juba to beat their South Sudan hosts 1-0 and see them advance 3-0 on aggregate to the first round.

Al Ghazala abandoned their ultra-defensive football they exhibited in the first leg on February 14 in Ndola for a more robust approach that rattled Zesco in the opening 30 minutes of the game at Juba Stadium.

“It was very difficult, we didn’t play our usual entertaining football but what is important is to sail to the next round,” Lwandamina said.

John Chingandu scored the winner when he headed in Jackson Were’s cross on the near post.

Zesco awaits the winner of Sunday afternoons other preliminary round clash between Horoya of Guinea who host AS Douanes from Senegal in Conakry.

  1. Congratulations Chicken George! In Mufulira where I grew up as did George Lwandamina it was common to have nick-names of film stars. I was nick-named “Branco” after a character in Bonanza, a western film. Others were called “Tarzan”, “Dick Tracy”, “G-man”, “Superman”, etc. George Lwandamina was named “Chicken George” after a character in “Roots” by Alex Hailey. This TV mini-series ran on TVZ. The real “Chicken George” was named so because of his involvement in the sport of cock fighting. It was a very educative mini-series on African American slavery and a rerun would not be out of place. While most of us have outgrown our nick-names “Chicken George” has stuck to Lwandamina.

    • george never grew up in mufulira but kitwe.
      he just joined mighty from mutondo and blackpool.
      by the way, do you know that he was a striker before the late zoom ndhlovu converted him into a defender.

    • @Senior Engineer RTD…Thank you very much for enlightening the masses as to why Lwandamina is called “Chicken George” I for one never knew the source of this name. Even the TVZ series you are talking were watched by the few elite by then. As you are aware very few Zambians owned TV sets by then.
