Foreign star studded Buildcon hold TP Mazembe in int’l friendly
Newly promoted Buildcon have held former African Champions TP Mazembe to a goalless draw in a game played on Wednesday evening at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The new kids on the block punched above their weight by holding a team with the likes of Chipolopolo skipper Rainford Kalaba in their ranks.
Nathan Sinkala and Given Singuluma both started for Mazembe.
But the talking point for the match is the starting XI named by Buildcon which was an all foreign player squad.
The visitors looked more Zambian than the Zambian team.
The new comers have given a hint of how they maybe lining up in the league and were able to field a team of all foreigners as Zambia does not have a quota system for foreign players in a team.
The Ndola baswd side however has renowned Zambia players in their ranks whi include former international Jonas Sakuwaha, Mathews Nkowani, defender Emmanuel Mayuka, 2016 divisiin one top goal scorer Emmanuel Kalala and goalkeeper Mwanza.
