Here is a selected wrap of some of our foreign-based player’s performances at their respective leagues and in continental competition over the weekend.

Midfielder Cletus Chama came on in the 53rd minute of Simba’s 4-1 away loss to TP Mazembe in their CAF Champions League quarterfinal final leg match on Saturday in Lubumbashi.

Zambia defender and captain Kabaso Chongo scored one of Mazmebe’s four goals against the Tanzanian champions and played the full 90 minutes together with midfielder Nathan Sinkala.

Midfielder Rainford Kalaba was substituted in the 76th minute of Mazembe’s 4-1 win that saw them advance via the same aggregate result to the semifinal.

-Mamelodi Sundowns:
Goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene was on the bench on Saturday in Sundowns 1-0 away loss in Egypt against Al Ahly in Alexandria but still advanced to the CAF Champions League semifinals 5-1 on aggregate.

-Black Leopards:
Striker Mwape Musonda on Saturday played the full 90 minutes for Black Leopards in their 1-1 home draw against Kaizer Chiefs but did not add to his Golden Boot-chasing 13 goals.


Midfielder Salulani Phiri played the full 90 minutes for Polokwane City in Saturday’s 0-0 away draw against SuperSport United.
Defender Billy Mutale and striker Gampani Lungu were unused substitutes by SuperSport.

Ligue 2 leaders and promoted Metz beat 16th placed Chateauroux 2-1 on Friday to confirm their Ligue 1 status for next season.
Defender Stopilla Sunzu played the full 90 minutes for the promoted side.

Beziers have six games left to ensure Ligue 2 status but on Friday sustained their second successive defeat in their bottom two dog-fight against last placed Red Star who beat them 3-1 at home.

Midfielder Emmanuel Banda was an unused substitute for the second from bottom team.


Striker Fashion Sakala is out with a foot injury and missed KV Oostende’s 1-0 away loss at St Truiden on Saturday.

-RB Salzburg:
Midfielder Enock Mwepu came on in the 79th minute for defending champions and league leaders 3-1 home win over Sturm Graz.
Striker Patson Daka was an unused substitute

Striker Brian Mwila was an unused substitute in Altech’s 1-0 away relegation playoff win over Hartberg on Saturday.


  1. Kabaso is captain of which Chipolopolo team? How many captains.
    It’s like PF, like to use title “commanders”.
    Then they have commanders in chief.

  2. This is very good information. One of the greatest testament to our global reach is reading about our own citizens making contribution to the success of others at the world stage. These young people represent us. As such we need to give them support as long as they project positive images of Zambia. Most people do not realize that competing at the international level is very difficult and competitive. Some of these young Zambians are actually displacing locally talented players because they are better at the game.
