Zesco United’s hopes of a 2017 CAF Confederation Cup group stage qualification brightened on Sunday after rallying from two-down to finish 2-2 away in Nigeria to Enugu Rangers.

Chibuzor Madu put the Nigerian champions ahead from the penalty spot in the 24th minute before Osas Okoro added the second in the 46th minute.

But defender David Owino put Zesco back in the race in the 72nd minute to score his second goal so far in the competition.

Striker Patrick Kongolo then made a dream debut when he scored the vital equaliser in the 76th minute.

A 0-0 home draw will suffice for Zesco at home on April 15 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola to see them through to May’s group stage of the competition.

Sundays draw also saw Zesco end their away jinx against Nigerian sides where they had lost on their last two previous visits to Kano Pillars and Warri Wolves.

  2. Please don’t expose your lack of knowledge. This is club football where nationality doesn’t matter. Even in Europe the successful teams in Champions league are comprised of a multi-national, multi-sectoral, multi-cultural mix. Sometimes not even a single citizen of the country where that club hails from. For example, several times Arsenal has fielded an entire first 11 without a single English player.

    So foreigners scoring for Zesco is a no brainer here unless you just want to raise debate. However, you have the right to wish for Zambian players to step up in these clubs for the good of our national team selection.
