Nkana Booted Out of CAF Confederation Cup

Zambia’s only surviving envoys in the CAF Confederation Cup quarter final Nkana Football Club have crashed out of the continental showpiece after being beaten 2-0 away to CS Sfaxien in the second leg to bow out 3-2 on aggregate.

A sixth minute Firas Chaouat goal got the Tunisians on their way to victory while Ala Marzouki completed the work in added time.

Nkana won the home tie 2-1 but could not finish off the Tunisians who progress to the semi-finals.

Beston Chambeshi’s side will now focus their attention to the domestic league where they lie second from the bottom in Stream B.

Nkana has played seven matches and managed nine points.

Their ejection from the CAF Confederation Cup means there is no longer any Zambian club remaining in both the Champions League and Confederation Cup.

    And people still argue we need a Zambian coach for the national team. We need a coach with a good CV whether from mars or venus

    It’s not about having a foreign Coach that can improve soccer in Zambia but it’s about improving the economy.Don’t u know that these teams we play against ar too exposed nd have alot of foreign players a thing u can’t afford here.Can u compare the welfare of our players to the players in DRC to say the least?I remember Arthur Lungu the late telling me that wen they went to play SouthAfrica,Philimon Masinga the late SouthAfrican player asked him if he could visit him in Zambia,guess wea Arthur was staying at that time??in Garden compound near the sewages.I won’t tell u the stench smell in Garden coz u know

    Much as we may want to blame the coaches and players the main culprit here is the government’s poor education policies, u cannot separate sport from education look at our sports infrastructures in schools, most school grounds have been sold out by cadres our children only get to play in proper boots when they join clubs and u expect them to win the world cup how?? Reduce fees in collegs and universities so that we can have educated footballers who r able to reason properly. My advice to players look after yourselves avoid beer drinking and other bad vices that r detrimental to your health,lastly get to know god and worship him always good luck to u nkana don’t give up there is always next time

    Actually they played better this time. 2-0 lose is not bad either going at nkana away record. Conclusion – Nkana should have buried the game in the first leg played in kitwe.

    Zambian clubs always find it difficult when they reach quarter final, my question is who is to blame- is it player’s or the coach to ble

      No one cares. We dont care 37, 40 or 80 years as long as nkana doesnt win a cup thats counts to nothing.
