Destiny now in our hands, says ZANACO coach after Cameroon victoryBy Diggers Reporter on 23 Jun 2017
Zanaco coach Mumamba Numba says destiny is in their hands in the 2017 CAF Champions League following Wednesday’s historic away win in Cameroon over Cotonsport.
Zanaco beat Cotonsport 1-0 to become the first Zambian club to win a continental fixture away in Cameroon.
Furthermore, the victory saw unbeaten Zanaco take full command of Group D on 10 out of a possible 12 points with two matches left.
A second half stoppage time goal from midfielder Saith Sakala handed Zanaco the triumph against the 2008 CAF champions League runners-up and in the process eliminate their winless hosts from the quarterfinal race in Group D.
“This win is a motivation for us to even push more in the remaining two games. It has put us in a good position to qualify to the quarterfinals,” said Numba.
A draw on July 1 at home against the record 8-time African champions Al Ahly of Egypt will suffice to confirm Zanaco’s debut qualification into the final knockout round of the CAF Champions League.
Al Ahly are 2nd on 7 points, one point more than 1992 winners Wydad Casablanca of Morocco who beat them 2-1 in Casablanca on Tuesday.
Zanaco will travel to Wydad on July 9 for their final Group D match.
Numba’s side began their Group D campaign with a 0-0 away draw against Al Ahly on May 12 in Alexandria.
Zanaco then stunned Wydad 1-0 in Lusaka on May 24 to collect their first Group D victory.
