Nkana, Zesco Face Off in Charity Shield

The Zambian football calendar rolls into life this afternoon with the season opening Samuel’ Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity that pits Zesco United and Nkana.

Both teams have made the CAF Confederation Cup group stage and are pitted in the same group that will see them face each other over two legs.

Today’s contest is a dress rehearsal of the CAF Confederation Cup in a week’s time.

Nkana overcame Zesco United 4-3 in the same competition in 2018 at Nkoloma Stadium and it could be payback time for the Ndola side this afternoon at Arthur Davies Stadium.

Zesco has firmly established itself as a continental force in the last few years and graded in top 10 African club sides.

All eyes will be on the prolific Lazarous Kambole who is arguably the hottest player in local football at the moment alongside the imposing Jeses Were who has also become a huge fan favourite.

However Nkana have equally the reputation to match any side with the talismanic Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba alaongside skipper Walter Bwalya.

Nkana also have more fluidity in 2012 Africa Cup winning midfielder Chisamba Lungu and the skilfull Harrison Chisala who could be game changers.

The Charity Shield precedes the opening of the Super League with teams getting into action on Sunday.

Kickoff for the Charity Shield is at 15:00 hours and the game will be live on SuperSport.
