Nkana vs Green Eagles


The once giant of the Zambia super league, Nkana football club “Aba Red” return in the 2016 season, with two openers that have seen them push to the first slot of the table in the Zambian premier league. The “conclusive duo”, the Bwalya’s, shared a soft greediness on the three goals companionably as Walter got the brace and Simon took on a goal.

Green Eagles took an opportunity early with the goal in the 5th minute that saw Scott Ngokene paying attention to the gloves. Soon the imbalance was brought to level by Walter Bwalya in the 21st minute having his ball into the net. Before knowing it fans were given another football goal scenery, just following the short next 10 minutes, as Simon Bwalya took charge at the ungirded Eagles’ defence and the @ichilita was hailed into jubilation with the “2016 chants”


5 minutes played into the second half of the game Walter Bwalya solidified Nkana’s intentions with another goal making it a brace. Chiyangi was now comforting to soften the lead and made changes as Juily Manziba came in for Chanda Mushili and Simon was whisked to a rest in the 78th giving chance to the young player Austin “Kay” Muwowo.


In the dying hours Nkana conceived a penalty which Adamson Mulao a Zambia national team call-up failed to interpret and missed the goal.
