Mbola helps Ranaana to cup victory

Israeli based left back Emmanuel Mbola played 120 minutes on Tuesday night in the quarter finals of the State Cup win over Ashdod.

And Emmanuel Mayuka was unused substitute for Ranaana as be watched the proceedings from the bench.

The clash pitted 11th (Ashdod -24 points ) versus 12th (Ranaana -20 points) on a 14 team log as it poised to be an even unfair.

With the match ending 1-1 in regulation, the game went into extra time but still yielded no winner.

After 120 minutes, the tie was settled via post match penalties with Ranaana emerging 5-4 winners.

Despite a slow start, the 24 year old left back is  emerging as one of the pillars of the team with top performance in both the league and cup matches.

The former Pyunik Yeravan and FC Porto youth player has far made 18 appearances.

For Mayuka, he came on as a late substitute to make his debut over the weekend.
