Mwepu saves Atletico from relegation on final day 

Striker Francisco Mwepu scored the only goal of the game to help Atlético Sanluqueño survive relegation in the Spanish Primera RFEF Group 2 (the third tier of the Spanish football league system)on the final day. 

Mwepu headed home from inside the box in the 65th minute to help Sanluqueño edge the winners of Group 2, Castellon 1-0.

The goal was Mwepu’s 9th of the season. The Zambian international was on a season long loan deal from Spanish La Liga side Cadiz CF (who have since been relegated to La Liga 2).

Mwepu was part of the Cadiz CF main team for their preseason ahead of the 2023/2024 La Liga season. 

The 23 year old signed a contract extension with the then Spanish Liga Liga in July, the former Sturm Graz forward extended his stay in Andalusia until 2026. 

Prior to his move to Spain, Mwepu spent two seasons at Austrian Bundesliga side, SK Puntigamer Sturm Graz.

He was an influential member of the Zambia Under-20 side between December 2017 and December 2019 helping the team to a COSAFA U-20 title in 2019 as the teams top goalscorer.

Mwepu who is the younger brother to medically retired Chipolopolo former captain, Enock Mwepu made his La Liga debut on matchday 36 last season against Villarreal.
