WEDNESDAYS PRO’S HIT LIST: Gampani shines in Pirates’ misery

Sports WEDNESDAYS PRO'S HIT LIST: Gampani shines in Pirates' misery

It was a Wednesday of mixed emotions in the South Africa PSL that saw Orlando Pirates lose their second successive competitive game.

Goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene was absent from the defending champions team sheet for a third successive competitive match following Wednesday’s 1-1 away league draw at 11th placed Chippa United.

Just five days after losing 1-0 away in the CAF Champions League to Green Eagles in Lusaka, Pirates were clobbered 3-0 on the road by SuperSport United in a Gauteng derby in Pretoria.

Midfielder Augustine Mulenga played the full 90 minutes while striker Justin Shonga came on in the 46th minute for ninth placed Pirates.

But the show belonged to compatriot and striker Gampani Lungu who scored seventh positioned SuperSport’s final goal in the 69th minute just twenty four minutes after coming on as a substitute

  1. Watched the game. Something seems wrong with Pirates. Dont know why Micho decided to change his squad though. On that Note Congrats to the young man Gamphani. Give the lad a run when the U23 regroups, that’s he if qualifies. I stand to be corrected about his age.

    • He come on as a sub meaning he cant be considered for under23 even if he had the right age. Zambian players piling their trade in South Africa must be regulars in order to be considered for national duty. Reserve mus South Africa?? What more in Western Europe

    • @Justice, how is DK, mulemoneka mudala.
      You got a point there, a Chipolopolo player should be a regular starter in RSA league. I only see Kambole and Augustine as players who can fight for position in next call out.

  2. The fact that he is in SA at his age should also tell you something. The lad is composed in front of goal, and thats something many of our strikers lack. That is why the U 23 would be a good platform for him to show case his talents

    • Zambia has already 5 good strikers.
      Let your Campani try to be a defender right-back, it will be good for him and he is good in that position.

    • Give the young man a chance. The little that I have seen him, he seems to be more composed than Justin Shonga in front of goal and the fact is the PSL is a stronger league than the Zambian league.
