VICTOR KUMWENDA, Mohamed Hamlaoui Stadium, Constantine
IT MAY not have been an extraordinary display but it was gutsy enough for Zambia to scrape through to victory in one stroke of genius by Austria-based striker Patson Daka.

Anonymous for most parts of the game, the 19-year-old intelligently beat an offside trap and raced into the path of midfielder Augustine Mulenga’s pass to poke the ball past goalkeeper Salhi Abdelkadir to silence the home supporters on Tuesday night.
The victory re-energised Zambia’s quest to qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia as they are now three points shy of Nigeria’s haul of 10 points with two games remaining.
