George Lwandamina has cautioned that it is not yet a done deal for Zesco United despite Sunday’s home win over Kaizer Chiefs in their race for 2018/2019 CAF Confederation Cup pre-group stage qualification.
Zesco overcame their South African opponents 3-1 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola to collect a vital first leg result that they will take into this weekend’s final leg date in Johannesburg.
“We still have another 45 minutes to play. You may call it the last leg but in our football language, this is just the first half of the match,” Lwandamina said in philosophical fashion.
“Football is unpredictable, I won’t be able to say if we are comfortable or not. We need to go and do what is required of us because this is football.”
Jesse Were scored a brace with a 29th minute penalty and 54th minute after his strike partner Lazarus Kambole opened scores in the 24th minute.
Khama Billiat scored Chiefs insurance goal in the 43rd minute.
The contest will be settled on January 19 in a 20h00 kickoff at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.
