    George Lwandamina play JESSE JACKSON WERE as a number 9 .
    Listen 👂 to this and remain in a Competition OR ignore and pack your bags!

    In my opinion, as long as ZESCO don’t find a good replacement for Idriss Mbombo, they are going no where this year. Their strikers have been misfiring like a car’s distributor with water in it.
    Their midfield is good, while their defence is solid, but what can you do if you are only defending?
    I wish them well and we shall keep supporting our own. Hoping thy know that a loss or draw in this game will drop the curtain in this year’s assignment.

      But Zesco’s most undoing act was releasing Cletus Chota Chama. He controlled midfield play very well for Zesco.
