Sunzu extends goal scoring form to club
Zambia national team defense kingpin Stopilla Sunzu scored a goal for his French Ligue 2 side Metz when they beat Niort 3 – 0 on Friday evening.

He returned to his base and was named in his team’s starting XI against 8th placed Niort.
The Ligue 2 leaders were hanging on a lone goal lead in the going into the second half but the huge centre back eased the tension when he reacted the quickest in the box to finish a Gakpa assist from close range.
This was the first goal for the 29 year old in 10 appearances.
The win saw Metz maintain the lead on the log with 27 points ahead of second placed Brest who have 25 points with 11 games played.
