Triple C returns for Masandawana showdown


Zesco United will have their best to parade against Mamelodi Sundowns when they clash on Saturday in the return leg of the CAF Champions League semi-final in Pretoria, South Africa.

Team ya ziko (team of the people) as the back to back Zambian champions are fondly referred to have been boosted by the return of sensational forward Cletus Chota Chama also known as “Triple C” who missed the first leg in Ndola, Zambia last week due to suspension.

The Mufulira born, 25-year old is pure joy on the ball; his ability to weave past opponents, score from long range or create chances for his teammates makes him a cut above the rest.

Chama has thus far netted four times in this campaign same as his playmate Jesse Jackson Were; the duo together with Jackson Mwanza who scored a brace in the first leg 2-1 win form an enviously lethal attack force.

Coach George Lwandamina named a squad of 20 on Tuesday which leave for Pretoria today (Wednesday) at 1325 hours local time for the match scheduled for Moses Moripe Stadium on Saturday 24.

The Full Squad:


Jacob Banda, Lameck Nyangu, Brown Nyirenda


Ben Adama Banh, David Owino Odhiambo, Simon Silwimba, Daut Musekwa, Bernard Mapili, Ayo Oluwafemi


Anthony Akumu Agay, Misheck Chaila, Clatous Chota Chama, John Chingandu, Kondwani Mtonga, Maybin Mwaba, Mwelwa Mwape


Jesse Jackson Were, Jackson Mwanza, Idris Ilunga Mbombo, Lazarous Kambole
