Ngassa downs Chipolopolo



Tanzania’s Taifa Stars recorded a famous 1-0 victory over African Champions Zambia in a friendly match at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam on Saturday.

Mrisho Ngassa the game’s only goal on the stroke of halftime with a spectacular goal to give the home side an unlikely win.

Kim Poulsen's Stars started with no Striker after Azam's John Bocco and TP Mazembe Duo Mbwana Samatta and Thomas Ulimwengu were ruled out with injuries.

Meanwhile, Herve Renard's side saw star centre-back Stoppila Sunzu, Rainford Kalaba and Muyuka Mulenga on the bench.

Zambia had the first attempt as Christopher Katongo tried to lob Juma Kaseja but his effort went wide. Stars replied immediately, as Ngassa delivered a good cross that saw Kapombe's header hit the woodwork.

Ngassa's speed caused problems to the Zambian defence, and he got the breakthrough with a fine individual goal in added time at the end of the first half.

Chipolopolo made five changes in the second half, which saw Sunzu coming on for Chris Katongo.

“It was a fantastic game and tough as well. I'm happy with the win, I'm happy with the way we played, the players were outstanding throughout,” Taifa Stars coach Kim Poulsen told supersport.com.

“It’s a good result for us against the African Champions, I told the players to believe in themselves, and they did. A good game and result to finish the year," he added.
