Champions Again!! Kalaba, Kabaso, Sinkala lead Mazembe to Confederations Cup title
DR Congo giants TP Mazembe on Saturday evening were crowned CAF Confederations Cup Champions after they held South Africa’s SuperSport United to a 0 – 0 draw to win 2 – 1 on aggregate.
It’s was a resolute defensive display by Mazembe whose fulcrum is built around the Zambian trio of Kabaso Chongo in Central defense, Nathan Sinkala in defensive midfield while skipper Rainford Kalaba in an attacking midfield role.
The three were named in the starting XI for both legs and it was Kalaba and Sinkala who posed the early threat in the game.
Despite SuperSport dominating, the experience from Mazembe who were playing in their 10th final in 8 years reigned.
Kalaba lasted 60 minutes while Kabaso was red carded in the 82nd minute.
Singuluma did not make the squad but will still get his medal.
This is Mazembe’s 10th title in Africa.
