Zambia: Arrows Booted Out Of CAF Confederation Cup

Red Arrows have bowed out of the CAF Confederation Cup despite a two one win over SIMBA Sports Club in the second leg played this afternoon.

The Airmen fail after losing three nil in the first leg which led to a 4-2 aggregate as Simba sailed to the group stage of the competition.

The pre-group stage encounter played at the National Heroes’ Stadium saw Arrows geared to overturn the fixture as RICKY BANDA’s 45th minute cracker restored hope as the team led one nil at half time.

Arrows scored their second goal minutes into the second half, through SADDAM YUSUF making it two nil and three-two on aggregate.

When all thought parity was being restored owing to the numerous chances that the home side had, SIMBA sniffed out the signs of hope as they pulled a goal back to make it 2-1 and 4-2 on aggregate.

The 4-2 aggregate gave Simba all the bragging rights as they wait to know who they will face in the group stage of the competition.

Meanwhile Arrows become the third Zambian club to be ejected out of continental football following the dismissal of ZESCO United and Kabwe Warriors football clubs.
