Zesco United win Cahora Bassa



Guests Zesco United have won the Cahora Bassa tournament popularly known as the 27th November Cup which was organised by Hidroelectrica De Cahora Basa Sa in the Mozambican North-Western town of Songo after they trounced hosts HCB Songo 2-1 in the final played on Sunday.

Jackson Mwanza and Maybin Mwaba scored for Zesco.

Under the friendship agreement between Zesco Limited and Hidroelectrica De Cahora Basa Sa, Zesco United did not collect any winner's prize and they appeared at the tournament for free.

The electricity men, who did not qualify for continental football after finishing third in the Zambian Super League, qualified to the final after they defeated Ferroviaro Maputo 3-1 in the Friday's semifinals with Lottie Phiri, Innocent Mwaba and Winston Kalengo getting on the scoresheet in that game.

Songo reached the final after they humiliated Chingale 5-0 on Thursday.
