Flames captain Joseph Kamwendo’s top form at his Mozambican side Liga Maculmana continued on Wednesday when he inspired his team to a 3-0 win over Ferroviario de Nampula. He scored one goal and created the other two.
The win sees Maculmana command pole position with 12 points from four games.
But Kamwendo was stretchered off the pitch in the 80th minute with an ankle injury. Nampula also featured two other Malawians, Foster Namwela and Vincent Chinthenga.
In an interview yesterday, Kamwendo said the injury was not serious and that he will play in a CAF Confederations Cup match against Moroccan side Wydad Casablanca tomorrow (Saturday).
“I was just taken off as a safety measure; otherwise, I am okay and looking forward to the CAF game. It feels good to be contributing to the team’s success as that is what we are paid to do,” he said.
In South Africa, striker Esau Kanyenda scored the winner in his side’s Limpopo United 2-1 win over Peter Wadabwa’s Thanda Royal Zulu in a National First Division encounter.
This was Kanyenda’s fifth goal of the campaign and eighth in all competitions since he started playing for the team in February.
Defender Limbikani Mzava again cemented his position at right-back in the Bloemfontein Celtic team as his team lost 0-1 to Amazulu in the PSL.
Robert Ng’ambi, who earlier in the day was named in the Soccer Laduma team of the week for the second consecutive week, was in action as his team piled pressure on leaders Kaizer Chiefs with a 2-1 win over Robin Ngalande’s BidVest Wits.
