Zesco overpower NkanaBy Diggers Reporter on 2 Apr 2017
Striker John Chingandu this afternoon inspired Zesco United to a 2-0 win over ten-man Nkana in the 2017 Charity Shield final.
Chingandu scored a second half brace to break the deadlock after a cagey first 45 minutes.
The Zesco striker fired in a long-range shot from the edge of the box in the 467th minute giving Nkana goalkeeper Kelvin Malunga no chance.
Nkana then suffered a setback in the 58th minute when defender and captain Donashano Malama was red carded by referee Wellington Kaoma for stomping on Zesco defender Ben Adama.
Play was then halted for four minutes thereafter as incensed Nkana fans threw missiles on the pitch before order was restored.
Chingandu almost picked a second goal in the 65th minute to add to Nkana’s misery but fired his sitter wide right on the goalline.
He redeemed himself in the 69th minute with a carbon copy of his first goal to seal the victory.
Meanwhile, Nkana’s best chance of a face-saver came in the 76th minute when Walter Bwalya’s teasing shot came off the horizontal bar.
And Zesco’s win also handed coach Zlatko Krmpotic his first Cup win from just four games in charge following his appointment in February.
This is Zesco’s fourth Charity Shield triumph.
Nkana are the record winners with 15 titles in the season opening tournament.Related Items
