CONGO’S CONFED CUP CHAMPS

DRUM - - Sportsbuzz -

SU­PERS­PORT UNITED’s am­bi­tions for lift­ing the CAF Con­fed­er­a­tion Cup were dashed when TP Mazembe beat the lo­cal team 2-1 on ag­gre­gate to claim vic­tory.

TP Mazembe, from the DRC, sys­tem­at­i­cally kept the lo­cal team on their toes with a com­mit­ted de­fense.

This is their third con­ti­nen­tal tro­phy in three years – a streak they’re un­der­stand­ably proud of.

The game wasn’t with­out its fair share of drama, though, as each team had a player red-carded in the last 10 min­utes of the game.

TP Mazembe’s KABASO CHONGO was sent off to the chang­ing rooms af­ter two yel­low cards, a de­ci­sion he didn’t take kindly to as he flipped his mid­dle fin­ger to the Su­pers­port side on his way out.

Su­pers­port’s Thuso Phala was also shown a straight red for a dan­ger­ous tackle.
