Fashion Sakala Scores to Spark Rangers Victory Over Real Madrid

Sports Fashion Sakala Scores to Spark Rangers Victory Over Real Madrid

Chipolopolo striker Fashion Sakala on Sunday inspired Glasgow Rangers to victory over visiting Real Madrid with the equalizer in Sunday evenings 2-1 pre-season win at Ibrox.

The goal came in Fashions’ second game for his new club just 24 hours after making his non-competitive debut in Rangers’ 0-0 home draw against EPL side Brighton.

Fashion came on in the 62nd minute of Saturday’s friendly while compatriot Enock Mwepu played the first half for Brighton.

But on Sunday, Rangers coach Steven Gerrard handed Fashion his first start against the record 13-time European champions.

The Chipolopolo striker had a modest first half in which Madrid led 1-0 through an 8th minute Rodrygo goal.

But Fashion came to life six minutes after the restart when he saw his tame shot confidently cleared by the right foot of Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin.

However, Fashion made no mistake in the 55th minute when he ran with the ball from halfway inside Madrid’s own half after collecting a short pass from Glen Kamara and finally beat Lunin.

The Chipolopolo striker then made way for Cedric Itten on the hour mark and his replacement completed Rangers’ rally with the winner in the 77th minute.

Sunday’s match was Rangers last pre-season friendly and they now prepare for their Scottish Premiership title defence on July 31 when they host Livingston.

  1. If you fail to win or score for your own country why should you be proud of scoring on another man’s land.

  2. Am also wondering these chaps. Here they made sure the country has nothing to to be proud of other than making us pay DSTV to watch them entertain the foreign lands.

  3. I would rather he performs and gives his all for rangers. That’s his full time employment where he will earn his hard earned salary.

    Unlike playing for Zambia which currently is a waste of time. There is no clear trajectory, players are treated like dirt and what do they get paid bloody pittance.

    Other African players have given thier all for club and country. Look at Sadio mane just built a hospital in his village at a cost of £500,000 of his own money.

    Unlike our convict president he is busy stealing with his minions

  4. DICK XULU SHOULD KNOW THAT A PROPHET IS HARDLY APPRECIATED IN HIS OWN LAND. DICK MUST STOP BEGRUDGING THE YOUNG MAN’S WELL EARNED SUCCESS. XULU NI POLITICAL CADRE FYE.

  5. Let Zambian Players prosper and
    Come back and plough their investment back in zambia like
    Their African colleagues. Not come to retire with no future like
    Some.

  6. LET FASHION SAKALA JUST PLAY FOOTBALL YOU ALL SIT HERE AND COMPLAIN AND AND HAVE TANTRUMS LIKE YOU GUYS CAN PLAY BETTER FOOTBALL. Give him time and he will surly play well for the country. And all you dumbasses you want football to change in Zambia and you keep blaming the government go make change you guys spend foreign dollars on yourselves to get fat and pay for bundles and internet to come on this place and talk garbage how bout we all pitch in and invest in Zambias football. Try building a training facility or some place were they can train besides oydc HOW BOUT WE START WITH THAT
