Zesco beat Al Ghazala Wau in Champions league opener
Zesco United may rue the missed chances but will be glad to take a 2 – 0 lead into the CAF Champions league preliminary stage second leg encounter against Al Ghazala Wau FC of South Sudan.
Zesco were dominant in the first leg and were in the lead as early as the 6th minute when new signing Idris Mbombo (in picture) scored his first champions league goal.
The Congolese striker straight from division one could have doubled the score but was denied by the woodwork in the 26th minute.
With the South Sudanese team looking happy to take back home a 1 – 0 deficit, Zesco added another in injury time through Clatous Chama to ensure that they take a 2 – 0 cushion to South Sudan in a fortnight.
With Skipper Jocob Banda out due to injury, George Lwandamina named Lameck Nyangu in goal in a team that only had five local players in the starting eleven.
