ZANACO midfielder Augustine Mulenga has dedicated the best player award to his late daughter, Hope, who died on the eve of Zambia’s 2018 Russia World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.

Despite being aware of his daughter’s demise, Mulenga put in a good shift and had a goal ruled offside by Botswana referee Joshua Bondo. Nigeria won 1-0 in Uyo on October 7.
Mulenga said in an interview in Kitwe on Friday night that he was humbled to have emerged winner against Chris Mugalu of Lusaka Dynamos and Zanaco team-mate Toaster Nsabata.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
