THE Confederation of African Football (CAF) has recorded Zesco United striker Lazarus Kambole’s hat–trick against Mbabane Swallows as the fastest in the history of the Champions League.
It is a feat in continental club football – he has beaten the likes of Neymar and Ronaldo.
Neymar netted a hat-trick in 14 minutes when Barcelona gave Scottish side Celtic a 6-1 drubbing in 2013 while Ronaldo hit three in 11 minutes either side of half-time as Real Madrid beat Swedish side Malmo in 2015.
Before Kambole, the record was held by Bafetimbi Gomis, who scored four in a stunning 7-1 win for Lyon against Dinamo Zagreb in 2011. The hat-trick was recorded within eight minutes.
But on Saturday, Kambole scored his hat – trick in five minutes as Zesco edged Swallows 3 – 0 in a CAF Champions League Group D match in Manzini, eSwatini http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
