Zanaco win 2019/2020 league curtain raiser

Ziyo Tembo scored a beautiful first-half header to help Zanaco beat Zesco United 1-0 in the Samuel 'Zoom' Ndhlovu final at Woodlands Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Zanaco came into the match looking to revenge the 4-1 loss they suffered in the ABSA Cup final at the hands of the Ndola giants while Zesco United was looking for a repeat of what happened in that game.

Sensational Zanaco controlled the match from the start with Mousa Souleymanou and Tafadzwa Rusike running the show. Zesco United had moments and created a number of chances but Mangani Banda was equal to the task every time.

The win takes Sensational Zanaco to four Charity shield titles. In the early kick-off of the day, National Assembly edged Young Green Eagles 1-0 thanks to a Godwin Chipanama goal to win the first-ever Divison One Charity shield.
