Chris Kaunda Wins on Zanaco Debut

Sports Feature Sports Chris Kaunda Wins on Zanaco Debut

Zanaco are back in the 2019/2020 CAF Confederation Cup quarterfinal race following Sundays’ 3-0 home win over ESAE of Benin at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

The result handed new coach Chris Kaunda a massive win on his debut match after replacing Mumamba Numba who was sacked on January 6 after a poor start to the season.

Rodgers Kola scored a second half brace in the 57th and 81st minutes while first half substitute Ernest Mbewe was on target in-between in the 54th minute.

The result saw Zanaco record their first win in Group C after three successive pool draws on 6 points in a competition they have yet to lose a match from the knockout round with three wins and as many draws.

But Zanaco stay third in Group C on 6 points, one behind second placed DC Motema Pembe of DR Congo and leaders and 2018/2019 runners-up RSB Berkane of Morocco who are tied 7 points heading into the penultimate round of games.

DCMP beat Berkane 1-0 in Kinshasa on Sunday to see the three sides head into the last two Group C matches with all to play for.

ESAE are out of the race on 1 point from four games.

Zanaco host DCMP on January 26 in Lusaka before heading to Morocco on February2.

  1. Numba was more interesting than Chris Kaunda.
    Why not find retired players or prayer-coaches than these Kaundas who can’t coach a National Team?
