Lwandamina selects Sakuwaha

STRIKER Jonas Sakuwaha is among 20 players that Zesco United coach George Lwandamina has selected for Sunday’s decisive CAF Champions League first round return leg against AS Kaloum of Guinea.
This is the first time this year Sakuwaha, who was influential in guiding Zesco to the group stage of the same competition in 2009, is being selected for the Champions League.
Club media and public relations officer Katebe Chengo, who released the list in Ndola yesterday, is optimistic the Zambian champions will beat Kaloum in Bamako, Mali.
The match is set for Bamako because of an outbreak of Ebola in Guinea.
“They are a beatable side and there is nothing to worry. We need to prepare adequately, we created scoring chances in the first leg. This is football and there is no home ground advantage,” Chengo said.
Zesco need an outright win to progress to the second round while a goalless draw is enough for the Guineans.
Meanwhile, Power Dynamos secretary Ricky Mamfunda said all is lost not for the Kitwe giants ahead of Saturday’s crucial Confederation Cup first round return leg against Gabonese side FC Mounana.
Mamfunda said in Kitwe yesterday that Power are capable of scoring four goals at Arthur Davies Stadium.
Power, who lost 4-0 in the first leg in Libreville, must shake the net five times to progress to the second round.
“Not all hope is lost. The 4-0 defeat we suffered in Gabon is now
water under the bridge. We can also score four or more goals here to
overturn the tables,” Mamfunda said.
He urged the players to continue believing in themselves.
And FC Mounana are expected in the country tomorrow aboard Ethiopian Airline flight.
The Zesco team:
Goalkeepers: Jacob Banda, Lameck Nyangu
Defenders: Ayo Oluwafemi, Dauti Musekwa, Emmanuel Mathias, Chishimba Changala, Bernard Mapili, Kondwani Mtonga, Emmanuel Mathias
Midfielders: Simon Silwimba, Misheck Chaila, Clatous Chama, John Ching’andu, Lazarous Kambole, Maybin Mwaba and Justin Zulu
