The Ngoni’s of KwaZulu-Natal, Durban South Africa the Usuthu clan, Amazulu FC booted out of CAF Champions league Nyasa Big Bullets FC in a second leg match played at Bingu National Stadium.
Both parties started slowly in the first ten minutes of the first forty five minutes despite Usuthu leading The peoples’ team Bullets also known as Palestinians by a goal to nil.
It was from a spot kick after Bullets failed to contain Amazulu attackers and speedy Ngoni Bonginkosi Mtuli threw his arrow passed Richard Chimbamba at fourth minute.
Babatunde Adepoju was first to find scoring chance but his AK47 riffle magazine was not loaded hence it was a Whisky Oscar at the first minutes of the game.
Mtuli doubled the score line after outplaying Bullets defence starting with Nickson Nyasulu at left flank which saw two Amazulu attackers unmarked in a dangerous site. First half ended in a two nil lead to the Usuthu.
Second half the peoples team started very well after their commander Callisto Pasuwa made some change with Misheck Selemani, Chiukepo Msowoya, Erick Lungu and Precious Phiri amongst those introduced for Hassan Kajoke, MacFarlane Mgwira, Chimango Kayira.
In the 50th minute, The Peoples Team got a free kick after the Ngonis fouled Chiukepo Msowoya few meters from the eighteen yard box. Henry Magetsi Kabichi used his marksmanship and he delivered the beauty to the far corner post of Usuthu’s goalie Veli Mothwa. It was one to two margin.
As it was thought that the Reds would come up with an equaliser, it was not to be as the Ngonis launched counter attack which ended in Chimbamba’s net through Luvuyo Mamela.This time Bullets lived dangerously as the visitors kept on hitting them through counter attacks by parking their “INTERCAPE BUS”.
Bullets unnecessarily lost possession and failed to retreat quickly on several occasions especially in defence which gave Amazulu FC an opportunity of getting all the three goals.
Referee Avalcao from Mozambique blew the whistle to mark the end of the match leaving many from Malawi in disbelief as they thought the Palestinians would use their weapons well at home. But My goodness! they forgot to refill and reload the bullets in their magazines.
They failed to hit the targets and it was the grand children of TCHAKA Zulu from Usuthu Clan who sharpened their arrows and mended their shields (Vishango) well.
This means Nyasa Big Bullets has failed to defend their away one nil victory to bow out of the Club Continental tournament by three goals to two on goal aggregate.
Amazulu FC now are to meet the Democratic Republic of Congo giants TP Mazembe in the next stage of the competition i.e. the 2020/2021 CAF Champions League.
