Mayuka and Chamanga Shine in Lusaka Derby


2012 AFCON icons Emmanuel Mayuka and James Chamanga scored for their respective sides on Saturday when Red Arrows and Napsa Stars drew 2-2 at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

Mayuka scored a brace for visitors Napsa while Chamanga scored Arrows’ opening goal in an entertaining Lusaka derby.

Mayuka got the show on the road when he hooked on to Jacob Ngulube’s cross with his right foot and on the turn fired in a sublime shot.

But Chamanga refused to be upstaged and he tapped in with ease a neat pass from Allasane Diarra in the 25th minute.

Diarra again was provider in the 42nd minute this time for Joseph Phiri who also tapped in the ball in similar fashion.

But Arrows lead lasted until the 61st minute when Napsa won a penalty after Ngulube was fouled by Francis Simwanza.

Mayuka stepped up to send Arrows goalkeeper Kenny Mumba the wrong way.

Mayuka takes his league tally to 4 league goals and 7 in all competition.

His fellow AFCON gold medal winner Chamanga took his seasons tally to 3 league goals from twelve rounds played.

Arrows are eighth on 16 points while Napsa stay third from bottom at number 16 with 11 points from ten games and three matches in hand.

Meanwhile, Prison Leopards reclaimed top spot of the FAZ Super Division following a 2-0 home win over Forest Rangers at Presidents Stadium in Kabwe.

Francis Zulu scored in the 1st minute and substitute Kobe Chipeta added the final goal in stoppage time of the 90minutes.

Prison have 23 points, two points more than Zanaco who drop to second.

  1. Good to see mayuka back in form. He almost finished his life after a stint in diaspora. Diaspora living is cursed. Welcome back

  2. Better in the diaspora than in Zambia under a corrupt, stinking, and visionless pathetic party .
    They have no shame in killing innocent people. Their accounts are full of stolen blood money.
    Iwe ka cleaner from Cheston clinic, talk about the killing of the 2 Zambians and the Honey bee scandal.

  3. Good great come back yuka20…nice to watch the two icons play each other great game it was.. they showed why they are afcon winer’s.. good volley Mr Yuka???…James nice team work keep it up ???????

  4. It seems Prison Leopards will win all their home games because they’re the only ones that can play on such a pitch. Let’s wait and see. Can that pitch qualify to host any games? I don’t think so
