ZAMBIA’S football image was yesterday left in shreds following Zesco United and Zanaco’s shocking home losses in their CAF Champions League first round first leg matches.
Zesco lost 1-0 to Ivorian side Asec Mimosas in Ndola for the 12-year unbeaten record at home in continental games to be halted while Zanaco succumbed 2-1 to virtual minnows Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
The defeats came 24 hours after Nkana capitulated 3-0 to Algerian side CR Belouizdad in the Confederation Cup first round first leg in Algiers.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
