Zanaco coach: It was not our day

Ala,” coach Chris Kaunda expressed shock as Zanaco goalkeeper Mangani Banda inexplicably let the ball squirm through his hands to let an Ocean Mushure innocuous shot into the back of the net.

Man of the match Aubrey Funga added the second before substitute Emmanuel Cherry Chabula put the icing on a stunning 3-0 victory.

Zanaco boss Chris Kaunda simply summed up the loss in the semi-finals of the Absa Bank Zambia sponsored Absa Cup: “It was not our day.”

In Bemba there is an adage that says, “Ubushiku usheme ne cibala chi locha (on your unlucky day yesterday’s cold and hard nshima can burn you).”

That first goal conceded by Banda was a harbinger of the debilitating defeat suffered by the bankers.

Had Zanaco won it would have been a repeat of the 2019 inaugural Absa Cup final. But alas, or is it “Ala?” It is not to be.

Lusaka Dynamos proceed to face defending champions ZESCO United in the final of the 2021 Absa Cup final.
