Flames midfielder Robert Ng’ambi on Saturday struck a second half brace which helped his South African Premier Soccer League (PSL) club Platinum Stars to earn a point in a CAF Confederation Cup match.
Stars drew 2-2 against Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland in their final Group B match at Moruleng Stadium in South Africa.
Nevertheless, Stars have finished the campaign at the bottom of the four-team group with three points from six matches, with three draws and equal losses.
According to kickoff.com, goals from Wonder Nhleko and Sabelo Ndzinisa allowed the Swazis to finish third with five points from two draws, one win and three losses.
Ng’ambi drew first blood 10 minutes from time when he bundled the ball over the line at the second attempt to give his side hope.
Then, with a few minutes to full time, he guided his header from a corner into the back of the net to draw Dikwena level.
Ng’ambi steered Stars to the group stages of the competition in April this year when his goal against Ivory Coast side AS Tanda, proved vital as it led to the match being decided through penalty shoot-out after tying 2-2 on aggregate.
This was after Stars lost the first leg 2-0, but recovered to win the return leg by the same margin with Ng’ambi scoring the priceless second goal. The South African team then went on to win 5-4 on post-match penalties.
