Zesco United have been eliminated from the CAF Confederations Cup in dramatic fashion by SuperSport United after a 2-2 draw at home in Ndola to bow out on away goals rule.

Zesco conceded the second goal just one minute before full time go out of the competition at the quarterfinal stage.

The first leg match ended goalless in South Africa last week on Friday.

Thuso Phala scored a double for the visitors at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in this return match.

Zesco went up just after three minutes when John Ching’andu scored after being set up by Misheck Chaila.

Phala equalised for SuperSport after 34 minutes as the two teams went to the break with a 1-1 score-line.

Zesco regained the lead five minutes after the break this time with defender David Odhiambo being the scorer.

The score-line was 2-1 with a minute left on the clock when Phala broke Zesco’s heart with an equaliser.

Soccer fans left Levy Mwanawasa Stadium fuming and wondering what had hit the Ndola club.

  3. For me, that was pure failure of two positions number two and goalkeeper are the people to blame. Where was number two and keeper when that final cross was kicked. That ball was coming overhead and keeper as well as number two Silwimba had enough time to block that ball. This is where we see Mweene running to punch such ball out. Another aspect is tactics; I agree with Sharon that you do not allow your opponent to come on you if you want to preserve the scoreline, you take the game to them and be active running with the ball in their half and have lots fouls in there half. On this, it was the bench that was not organized and no tactics at all. Its sad when you see a team loosing when you have less that a 45 second from qualify to the next level. This is where you need to invest in proper…

  4. Comment Poor technical depth from the bench. You don’t lose a game less than 45 seconds to closing. Sad for Zesco.
