City thump not-so Mighty Mufulira Wanderers


City of Lusaka downed hosts Mighty Mufulira Wanderers 4-1 on Monday at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira to confine the 9-time champions to their second straight defeat of the 2017 FAZ Super Division campaign.

The win for promoted City handed them their first league of the season after starting the campaign last week with a 1-0 home loss at the hands of current pacesetters Green Eagles.

Wanderers on the other hand tumbled to their second big defeat after they were thumped 3-0 away by Green Buffaloes on April 8 in Lusaka.

City cruised into the break against a disjointed Wanderers thanks to goals from Noel Phiri in the 7th minute and Clement Mundia in the 27th minute.

Roy Sakwanda added the third in the 49th minute minute before Wanderers’ Ghana-born striker Rahim Osumanu cut that lead to 3-1 in the 50th minute.

Osumanu was then denied a brace by the post in the 52nd minute as Wanderers tried to stamp their mark on a waterlogged pitch following a storm that hit Shinde at halftime.

However, City ensured Wanderers hand a mountain to climb thereafter when Dominic Mulenshi scored the fourth goal in the 62nd minute to send the home side to the bottom of the table.


  1. Its time to fire the coach ba Mighty. Dont even waste time because next year you might be playing second division soccer

  2. No doubt the coach should be fired. Conceding 7 goals in two matches is dismal. Mighty losing 4-1 at home? To City of Lusaka!This has never happened. And whoever thinks this is normal is a candidate for Chainama hospital. Mighty should hold an urgent club meeting today and give the coach his marching orders. The mopani mine must plough some of it’s profits in Mighty. They bought no players this season. This is not kalukungu league

  3. We still have people who think winning a game of football only rests with the coach..football has administrators,coaches, players and fans please

    • Finshi ulelanda iwe? That’s just trying to detract us. You are still wanting to bring this tired argument of 20 years ago?
      Man u fired two coaches not the adminstrator not the players because they know in modern soccer the coach is the driver of the club

  4. Ababene ba coach Baku Egypt ababula strategy. How do you start the league without even a warm up friendly? Is he there to win the league or for just a salary?
