CAF: Odur, Majwega Goals Hold Zambia
CAF Champions League:
First round, first leg: Nkana 2 KCCA 2.
A ten-man KCCA showed true fighting spirit by pulling off an away draw against Nkana FC in the CAF Champions League first round. KCCA, who had Tom Masiko sent off for a second bookable offense, had 25 minutes into the match sent a cold chill on the home crowd with a Tonny Odur opening goal. Nkana found its way back earning a penalty ten minutes later. However, wonder goalkeeper, Salim Magoola pulled off a save, his second in three CAF matches. The pressure paid off with a Simon Bwalya equalizer. Masiko was sent off moments before the hosts capitalized on their numerical advantage to take the lead through Shadrack Musonda. KCCA vigorously fought back. The pressure finally paid off in the 70th minute with Maybin Chishimba bringing down Odur in the box and Brian Majwega converting the resultant penalty. It was the second impressive away result for Nsimbe’s side .
KCCA plays the Zambian side next Saturday at Namboole in the return leg.
