Chamanga fires Free State down

Posted: 12 December 2007 Time: 18:21

Moroka Swallows beat Free Stae Stars 2-0 in an Absa Premiership match thanks to a brace by James Chamanga at Goble Park on Wednesday afternoon.

Zambian striker James Chamanga, who hit a PSL-record five goals against Platinum Stars on Sunday, was again in hot form, hitting a brace to move clear at the head of the Premiership’s scoring charts on nine goals.

After a bright start to the match, it was Swallows who broke the deadlock on the 20 minute mark when Chamanga drilled home a left footed shot from within the 18-yard area to put his team in the lead.

Stars dominated the rest of the first half, but struggled to bring strikers Sthembiso Ngcobo and Diyo Sibisi into the game, leaving the visitors a goal to the good at the interval.

Chamanga then doubled his tally soon after the restart, shooting past goalkeeper Kennedy Mweene after being set up by strike partner Sandile Ndlovu.

Stars’ Jimmy Kauleza forced ‘keeper Greg Etafia into a good save just a few minutes later and Duncan Lechesa shot wide from the resulting corner, as Stars looked to bring themselves back into the game.

But a combination of poor finishing and some stout defending by the Birds ensured that the visitors handed Ea Lla Koto their first home defeat of the season.

Honestly, this is ridiculous. This guy has 7 goals in 2 games. Are we ever gonna have capable players to play like the Zambians? South Africa should think twice about restricting the number of foreigners allowed per team per season, because the more i look at this, the more i realize that to make this league a better league, we need them. They play better football than our boys.The lack of quality players has nothing to do with the quota of foreigners we allow. It has everything to do with the attitude. Until we have players that are ready to play, lets just keep allowing these foreigners to build this league. Maybe the more competition they bring, the more our players are going to be serious.

I'm astonished to say the least about chamanga's scorin' form, he must have found some kind of strong concoction back home in zambia. Walaza is doing well at a normal scoring rate & but chamanga will unfairly take home the riches that comes by virtue of being the top goal scorer. well done to swallows for having their own mbesuma & katongo's of this world. should his concoction remain strong he will even break fani's record.

Goals are made in Zambia and there is prrof to that effect (Albert Bwalya, Wedson Nyirenda, Dennis Lota, Collins Mbesuma and now James Chamanga.

Clubs should look for strikers in Zambia and not waste time anywhere else. Right now there are two boys who have 23 and 24 goals respectively. These are the players to buy and not those that can not deliver.
