Euro Update: Sunzu makes league derby

Zambian players were in action over the weekend in Europe and China.  The leagues in Eastern Europe have resumed after the winter break. 

The ZamFoot Crew takes a look at how the Zambian boys performed for their respective club. 



Striker Moses Phiri started at home for Academico Viseu and played for the 87th minutes before he was substituted.

It was bad weekend for the former Zambia Under-20 and Zanaco striker as Academico lost 2-1 to Freamude. Academico are fifth on the log with 47 points in the Segunda Liga (second tier).


Lubambo Musonda played on the right wing and helped his club Gangszar to a 1-0 over Pyunik as the Armenian top flight resumed after the winter break.


Bottom placed and Evans Kangwa’s Gaziantepsor lost 2-1 away to Collins Mbesuma’s former team Bursaspor in a Super Liga match. The Zambian striker was introduced in the 89th minute but could not prevent his side from going down.


Stopilla Sunzu  started in defence at his new Russian club, Arsenal Tula over the weekend in the 3-0 win over Orenburg.

Arsenal Tula are on 12 points and in the relegation zone.

The big defender is on loan from French Ligue 1 side Lille.

Still in Russia, Chisamba Lungu capped off a fine week as he helped Ural to back to back wins. Ural followed up a midweek cup win over Krasnodar with another 1-0 win over Amkar. Ural have 17 points and just above the drop zone.

On Friday, it will be a big one for Zambian fans as Stopilla Sunzu’s Arsenal Tula will welcome Chisamba Lungu’s Ural


Emmanuel Mbola played 90 minutes in Hapoel Ra’anana’s 1-0 home defeat to Sakhnin. Mbola was booked in the second half.

    See Sunzu it is pays to honour your wife. Now you get rewarded with 90 minutes. keep it up. If you get more money do more things for your wife better than Benz…

  9. Positive thinking says:

    I have to give it up for Chamanga who is still scoring goals at almost 40. The guy is just a natural born goal scorer. Amazing.


      Although not appreciated by many I respect the Guy because he has good movements in the box similar to Chris Katongo.
