Sakala on target again for Al Fayha 

Chipolopolo striker Fashion Sakala has continued his fine form in Saudi Arabia as he helped his team to pick up an important point away in Riyadh. 

 The Zambian international scored his second goal of the 2023/2024 Saudi Pro League in his second match. 

Sakala put Al Fayha in the lead just fifteen minutes into the match at MrSool Park. 

Gojko Cimirot set up Sakala at the edge of the box, the Zambian unleashing a powerful shot which went in off the right post, 1-0. 

The lead however only lasted for five minutes as Abdullah Al Hamdan scored a rebound to level matters. 

Sakala was the major threat for Al Fayha all night but could not add to his tally. 

On a day, Al Hilal finally presented their big money signing, Former FC Barcelona star Neymar. It was only fitting that the Zambian had his moment. 

Sakala has now been involved in three goals (2 goals and 1 assist) in just two games and only Roberto Firmino and Malcom (3) have scored more goals so far. 

Next up for the former Nchanga Rangers man is a home match against Al Hazem. 

NB: Al Hilal are the Arab Club Champions Cup losing finalists and apart from Neymar who was not part of the action, they also have the likes of former Wolves player Reuben Nerves, Former Barcelona player Malcom and former Lazio midfielder Milinkovic Savic on their books (who all played yesterday).
