Midfielder Chisamba Lungu had a memorable day at the office on Monday in Russia as we take a brief wrap of weekend action by our European-based players.
Chisamba on Monday scored his second goal of the 2016/2017 season from 22 matches played in Ural’s 2-0 home win over second from bottom Orenburg.
He played the full 90 minutes and netted Ural’s final goal in stoppage time to help guide the club to its 7th league win of the campaign.
Ural are just outside the bottom four in 12th place on 23 points.
Striker Fashion Sakala came on in the 82nd minute for Spartak Moscow’s B team’s 0-0 home draw on Saturday against Volgar Astrakhan.
It was Sakala’s second game with the 6th placed Russian 2nd division side.
Defender Stopilla Sunzu played the full 90 minutes for fourth from bottom Tula in their 3-1 away loss at 5th placed Terek Grozny on Saturday.
It was Sunzu’s fifth match since arriving on loan in the winter from French club Lille.
Striker Patson Daka started for 2nd division side Liefering on Friday in the clubs’ 3-0 home loss to 4 th from bottom Blau Weis Linz.
He was substituted in the 87th minute in what was his third match for Liefering but has yet to open his goal account for the club.
