Shonga Goal Sinks Gabon in International Friendly

Chipolopolo midfielder-cum-striker Justin Shonga turned saviour again when he scored the lone goal in Zambia’s win over Gabon in an international friendly match.

Shonga who netted the equaliser on Saturday from a set piece against Namibia was again the saviour with a 16th minute goal that gave Zambia a 1-0 win over the Panthers.

The Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroek handed Shonga and Enock Mwepu starting berths after having left them on the bench in the Africa Cup of Nations qualifier for most of the match.

Zambia was using the match as a preparatory match ahead of the October 10 Group K qualifier against Gatineau Bissau at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

The Chipolopolo boys have managed one point out of a possible six points with a loss against Mozambique and a draw with Namibia.
