Chamanga’s brace helps his club survive relegation

 

James Chamanga helped his club Liaoning Whowin survive relegation when he scored a brace to help them to a 2 – 1 win away at Dalian Aerbin.

This was a key game for Liaoning in their race for survival as they were playing a team occupying the last relegation place and a point behind them. A loss would gave condemned Liaoning into relegation with a game to play in the season.

However, Chamanga and his team mates came out of the blocks with guns blazing and the Zambian took only three minutes to register his name on the score-sheet.

Chen Tao pulled on back for the hosts in the 55th minute before Chamanga wrapped up his brace in the 73rd minute.

Chamanga is currently the club’s leading scorer with 11 goals in 19 appearances.

  2. @ Josphat wow thanks for that update, that is amazing information on players we idnt even know about. We have players in Germany and the CZECH REPUBLIC.

    Big up for the update.

    On another note very sad day indeed for South African and African soccer as a whole on the news that Bafana goal keeper and captain Senzo Meyiwa has died so tragically at such a young age. Condolences to his family.

  3. @ Josephat, impressive recap.
    I am surprised that Edwin Phiri is still playing in the Swedish League,
    How old is he now?
    If I am not mistaken I left him playing for Orygryte in Gothenburg sometime between 2000-2003.

    For those bloggers old enough, I met the once great midfield maestro, Jani Simulambo in Port Elizabeth here in SA over the weekend as we celebrated Zambia’s Golden Jubillee.
    Jani played for Livingstone Jets, and Zambia schools as school boy International, while at Hillcrest, he left Hillcrest in 1971. I went there in 1977, found Danny Pule in Form 5; Nevers Mumba in form 4; Bishop Joshua Banda in Form2. All of us missed Jani as he had already left.
    His football record at school was still alive because by then he was captaining GBFC and KK 11. etc.
    He has caught on in years but still very strong, and is now a devoted Christian.

    • Yah I remember Jani Simulambo when he was playing for GBFC. His newspaper cuttings pictures in my football newspaper cuttings album used to feature prominently when updating it every Monday with friends. Good to hear that he is still alive and well. Thanks!

  4. The killings is south africa are becoming worse. South africans sometimes behave like they are not in southern africa. Lucky dube,senzo meyiwa,etc and even the way they treat pipo from zimbabwe shows how heartless they are. If they can kill fellow south africans like dube and meyiwa,what more foreigners ? What a shame !!!!!

  5. Big up Josphat on the foreign weekend recap.

    @Germistone South and @Big Steve the Senzo Meiyiwa story is a sad one. The guy looked like he was going to keep Khune on the bench when he recovers. Was it just a robbery gone wrong or he was taken out by a jealousy boyfriend?

  6. @Sibs that is true, but I can tell you my brother that,there is a lot of stories surrounding the death of Senzo. Tuma Girlfriends, according to stories coming from that township of Vosloorus are saying, the gangsters( 2) demanded his cell phone but, I can tell you that girl friend Kelly Khumalo should know more. Investigations are under way.

  7. Rest in Peace Senzo Mayiwa. What a sad story.. Our brothers in South don’t care even if they can find Jesus with what they want they can kill him. Am in shock..

  8. @Kasama Boy

    You make me think of those gone days or may say years at Maramba in Livingstone when ITT Superstars used to play ZAF. By then, I had my idols in the name of Maybin, Harry Wire, the two brothers Babu and Mundindi. The late Fani Hangunyu, MHSRIP, was at Linda Secondary School but he used to be a regular feature at Suuuuuuuuuuuper. We used to walk from ma-M.E. past Malota to Maramba Stadium just to watch the rival teams play. My brother George ‘Best’ Soopu was the best number 9 in Southern Province Secondary schools select team. Those were the days of Maria Assumpta a.k.a. Maria Zabwe featuring the likes of Christopher Nganga, Gust etc.

  9. @Vinkubala, yes it was so great in those days. At Hillcrest we tried so much to beat Linda but we always lost, because of the likes of Fanny Hangunyu. I even told him so when I met him at Arrows.
    I was concentrating on Judo, then after Father Jude Mc Kenna discouraged us from Boxing. So we took up Judo, with bena Henry Sichalwe (late), Charles Chibwe (late), and David Kayoya then a teacher at Linda. At first it was just an excuse to sneak out into town to admire tu missus, but it eventually became so big we even opened a Judo club and Dojo at Hillcrest.
    Yes kwa libingi used to be nice. I do remember that very good dribbler Maybin from ITT Superstars. Then we had Sorento, Shanabwato, and the Maramba Off-sale.

    • @Kasama Boy, I went to Hillcrest in 1984.Ours was the last intake of form ones!We found the Judo Hall disused…but personally, I used to go in town to practice Judo under Father Jude McKenna, unfortunately he left Livingstone for Mongu around 1985(or thereabout). We started a Karate Club (of which I was Vice – Chaairman) and David Kayoya (late) used to come and coach us once in a while. But like you allude to, it was such a good excuse to sneak into town, sometimes without an “exit” – permission as it was called – to go to the dojo at St Theresa’s!

  10. By then, I was doing Grade 6 & later 7 at Livingstone Primary School. I used to play in the traditional no. 7 position and was a good crosser of the ball. At Namatama, there was Skaka and at Syanalumba, there was the skillfull Oliver. I admired those guys coz they were good dribblers of the ball. I used to play with them at that ground near Mbita Bar. Kasama Boy, you really make me smile with happiness when I remember those years. Those were good days indeed. Me and my friends used to crawl down those corrugated iron sheets at Maramba Stadium just to watch ITT Superstars play. I remember one day when Namatama was playing Maria Zabwe at Namatama ground near that Mukanda. The game had gone five minutes and Christopher ‘Destroyer’ Nganga from Maria Zabwe unleashed a scorcher which gave the Namatama goalkeeper no chance at all and the game just ended with 85 mins to go. My friends came a bit late and found us dispersing. They then asked ‘Destroyer’ if the game was to continue. You know what answer he gave them? ” Ba ti yopa boyi”, was his reply. Kekekekekekeke

  11. i WATCHED the game.James still has a poachers insticts.2 important goes he scored.both from within the 18.btw,the chinese league is getting very competitive.Its as professional as they get.

  12. I watche the game,James’ off the ball movement was impreesssive,his positioning even better.Both goals came from twithin the 18 box,he showed alot of hunger and killer insticts.Heart felt condolences to the berieved family of Mayiwa.

  13. I agree with those calling for a better coach i also agree that players like james chamnga are rubbish and old. Evans kangwa and lubambo musonda must be called to the national team. Lubambo musonda scored a cracker this week he is national team material. Evans kangwa also scored against israeli giants maccabi haifa.

  14. Unfortunately ba zamfoot are also behaving like Janza by not listening to our calls. This site has gone 4days without updates..

  15. Ghana have been disqualified from participating at the Under-17 African Youth Championship in Niger next year for fielding an ineligible player. CAF took the decision following a protest by Cameroon claiming overage players were fielded in Ghana’s final qualifier. Cameroon protested against seven players they felt were overage, with the organising committee finding one of them guilty as charged. The Ghana Football Association (GFA) insists the player in question is of the correct age and say it was confirmed by MRI reports from Ghana, one of which was in the presence of a CAF medical officer. However, CAF wrote to the GFA on Saturday claiming the analysis of the MRI report from a medical centre in Ghana contradicts the analysis of two CAF medical experts on the eligibility of one of the players. CAF has now overturned that result and reinstated the Cameroonians, which means they have qualified for the tournament to be held in Niger next year. “The Ghana Football Association confirms receipt of a letter from CAF disqualifying the National U-17 team, the Black Starlets from the U-17 Championship to be played in Niger in 2015…,” a Ghana FA statement on the federation’s official website revealed. .
