By Staff Reporter
FOOTBALL Association of Zambia (FAZ) has congratulated Zambian envoys in the CAF Confederation Cup, Nkana Football Club and Zesco United for recording first leg home victories on Saturday and Sunday respectively.
FAZ President Andrew Kamanga on behalf of his executive committee said the victory by the two sides was a firm indicator on the state of the Zambian league that it was one of the top on the continent.
Kamanga has encouraged the two teams to remain focused ahead of the second leg fixtures set for this weekend and keep the Zambian flag flying higher.
He said given the margins posted in the first legs, the Zambian teams could finish off the job with better planning and focus.
Nkana defeated Ivorian side San Pedro 3-0 while Zesco United overcame South African giants, Kaizer Chiefs 3-1.
“A big congratulation to our representatives in CAF competitions. We have no doubt that you will finish off the job in the second leg and make us even prouder,” Kamanga said.
