Zanaco Shock Motema Pembe to Keep CAF Confed Cup Quarterfinal Dreams Alive


Zanaco remained in the race to reach the quarterfinals of the CAF Confederation Cup after beating DR Congo side DC Motema Pembe 2-1 in the penultimate Group C match played on Sunday in Lusaka.

The win at National Heroes Stadium pushes Zanaco to second in Group C with nine points, one behind leaders RS Berkane, who are top with 10 points following their win over Esae, and are through to the last eight.

Zanaco,who have never made it out of the continental group stage in three attempts, are two points ahead of Motema Pembe who drop to third.

Substitute Moussa Soluleymanou scored a 93rd minute winner as the Bankers came from a goal down to beat Motema Pembe 2-1.

Kevin Owusu launched the comeback in the 83rd minute with a volley, cancelling out Bayindula Nkongo’s 7th minute goal.

The game was seemingly headed for a draw, when Souleymanou’s strike in the 93rd minute was cleared after it had crossed the line and the referee pointed to the centre circle.

Meanwhile, in their last group match Zanaco will be away to Berkane in Morocco while Motema Pembe play bottom side Esae in Kinshasa.


  1. Kalusha Bwalya is better than Kamnaga and its good that Kamanga’s tenure is coming to an end so that the guys goes to Petauke for farming

  2. The thief and crook is Kalusha Bwalya and he should not be given chance to come back to FAZ again. There’s nothing wrong that Kamanga has done, its ka Kalusha Bwalya has been frustrating his efforts, Kalusha has been using some people to undermine Kamanga. But if in the name of Lord Kamanga should continue, he will continue. Players were not being paid allowances or being paid partly under Kalusha Bwalya, but under Kamanga players are paid immediately after a game! Minister of Sport , Mulenga is the one who’s determined to see to it that Kamanga doesnt win, he wants Kalusha, because they are related.
