WEEKEND SCORECARD: Nkana Hero Mulenga Reflects on Goal in Morocco

Sports Feature Sports WEEKEND SCORECARD: Nkana Hero Mulenga Reflects on Goal in Morocco

Striker Simon Mulenga reflects on his debut continental goal that helped Nkana secure their 2020/2021 CAF Confederation Cup group stage qualification.

Mulenga scored Nkana’s lone goal in Sunday’s 2-1 away loss to Tihad Casablanca in the final leg decider in Morocco.

Despite the score line, the goal ensured Nkana avoided a post-match penalty decider and saw the Zambian champions’ progress 3-2 on aggregate following a 2-0 first leg home win on February 14 in Kitwe.

“My goal was very important for the team. We needed a goal to go through and I thank God that I helped the team to go through,” Mulenga said.

“We are very happy we managed to go through to the group stage.”

Mulenga, who was only playing his second continental match with Nkana, scored in the 57th minute after Mahmoud Bentayg and Aymane Dairani had put Tihad ahead in the 4th and 38th minutes respectively.

The goal was Mulenga’s fifth in four competitive games with Nkana after scoring three in the sides last three league games prior to the two-legged tie against Tihad.

  1. Honestly its so true that never judge a book by its cover, I had always talked bad about the spiritual healers because I lived a very good life with a nice business and had a nice family with my husband and our two kids. I always thought that they were scammers and crooks and I never believed that anyone can solve someone’s problems . I could rudely reply to the posts about the healers with insults little did I know that one day they will help me. It started when a strange disease attacked one of my kids for several months. The eldest child could get an attack and he faints with lots of saliva from his mouth and mucus fluids from his nose. I visited most of the big hospitals in South Africa but the doctors couldn’t see the disease. I went to pastors, certain healers, prophets and priests but couldn’t see any change. I sold all of my properties and lost my businesses since I didn’t have time for them as wanted to save my son’s life. We lost everything. My husband started losing interest in me, disrespected me, insulted me in front of our kids, all my in-laws hate me. He always said that I had a curse of bad luck that I brought to the family. I was left with no hope. The worst point of it is when my husband started cheating on me with a rich well-known business woman which I won’t mention her name. I got depressed and wanted to kill myself. One of my closest friend noticed my situation and I explained to her what was going on in my life. She just gave me a phone number and told me that just a single call will be a solution to all my problems. My friend called profisma and made an appointment to go to his office and on that date, my friend picked me very early in the morning and took me there. I explained everything to her. He asked us to go back and bring the sick kid and we did so. He cast his spells and after a few hours, my son was healed and never had the attacks again up to date. After three days my husband came back home and apologized to me. He gave me a ring for my business and as I speak now am not complaining. I got back everything. Call or whatsapp him on +27783320386. Really he made me have life again
