Patson Daka made a timely return to competitive action on Monday night in Austria.
Daka played his first match in a month after inspiring his parent club RB Salzburg’s feeder team, Liefering, to a 1-0 home win over Wacker Innsbruck in an Austrian 2nd division game.
The Zambia striker was on hand with the assist for Liefering’s winner in the 24th minute scored by Samuel Tetteh.
The win sees Liefering exchange places with their guests in 3rd and 4th place on 27 and 26 points respectively on the Austrian 2nd division log.
Daka was later substituted in the 64th minute while his compatriot Enock Mwepu played the full 90 minutes.
Daka had been sidelined since October 1 when he sustained at injury for Austrian premier division side RB Salzburg ahead of Zambia’s October 7 away date against Nigeria in a 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier.
His return to action came just hours after Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda named Daka to his provisional 28-member team to face Cameroon on November 11 in a formality Group B qualifier at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
