Sports Feature Sports Kapumbu Back In Action for Zesco United

Zesco United defender Fackson Kapumbu makes his first return to continental action following a lengthy layoff after making the travelling party to Tanzania for this weekend’s CAF Champions League date against Young Africans.

Kapumbu is part of Zesco’s 18-member team that left on Wednesday for Dar es Salaam to face Young Africans on September 14 in a pre-group stage, first leg match.

Midfielder Thabani Kamusoko is expected to join Zesco in Dar es Salaam today from Harare after attending to national duty with Zimbabwe in Tuesday’s 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Somalia that his team won 3-1 to advance to the group stage draws 3-2 on aggregate.

Saturday’s match will also mark Zesco coach George Lwandamina’s first return to Young Africans since he left the club in March last year after spending two seasons there.
