CAF goal at 41 elates Joseph Musonda: I still have ballsBy Alex Chilumbwe on 14 Jan 2019
Nkana’s Joseph Musonda says he feels intimate with his CAF Confederations Cup goal against Ivorian side San Pedro, and is elated after being labelled the oldest Zambian player to score in the competition’s match which the Kitwe giants won 3-0.
Musonda netted the second in the fixture at 51 minutes, barely 10 minutes after Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba opened the scoresheet.
In an interview with Goal Diggers! Musonda who is otherwise an accomplished defender and a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations champion, said his feat against San Pedro gave him more reason why he should not mind his age, but focus on the game.
“I am very happy that I ended up on the score sheet. I have seen publications on social media saying I may be the oldest [Zambian] player to score in the CAF Confederations Cup competition and that is what is making this goal very intimate to me. It shows that hard work can go beyond one’s age,” he said.
Asked if he was contemplating hanging his boots any time soon, Musonda said he still had balls to flaunt.
“I’m still around and I have chosen not to mind my age. I am still very fit and even look younger than some of my juniors. As soon as I feel like I can no longer keep up with active football pressure and the time is right, I will make it known. I can’t think of it now especially that I have just scored in the Confederations Cup,” said Musonda.
Festus Mbewe, a Walter Bwalya replacement had the final say in Nkana’s victory in the 85th minute when he closed the opening chapter of the first leg tie from a tight angle.
Chisamba Lungu was also an instrumental substitute in the second half, and may be Coach Beston Chambeshi’s option for the starting 11 at the second leg to be played on January 20.Related Items
