Cup win for Tera in Georgia as Zesco trio stumble in CL

Mixed fortunes were the order of the day over the weekend when Kenyan stars playing their trades abroad took to the pitch.

Kenyan U23 youngster Alwayn Tera helped his side Saburtalo FC of Georgia claim the 2019 Georgia FA Cup on Sunday 8 December, beating Locomotive Tbilisi 3-1 in the final.

Tera, who is the younger brother to former Posta Rangers and Tusker winger Luis Tera, clocked the full 90 minutes and was cautioned after the first 20.

Perfect ending

The cup win is the perfect ending to a 2019 season that saw them miss out on retaining their league crown by five points as they finished 3rd behind winners Dinamo Tiblisi who racked in 75 points.

Elsewhere in Zambia, a disappointing afternoon for Zesco United saw them lose 2-1 on matchday 2 of the CAF Champions League on Saturday to Congolese outfit TP Mazembe in Ndola.

Kenyan internationals David Owino, Jesse Were and Anthony Akumu started the game with both Owino and Were clocking the full 90 minutes.

The loss has Zesco sitting 3rd in Group A with a single point sealed against Primero Agosto of Angola on matchday 1 while Mazembe lead the group with six points.

Back to Europe and Belgium to be exact where Cercle Brugge suffered their 14th loss of the season at the hands of defending champions Genk, going down 2-1 at home on Saturday.

Omollo injury

Harambee Stars international Johanna Omollo started the game but unfortunately was withdrawn after 20 minutes with an injury.

Tanzanian international Mbwatta Samatta clocked the full 90 for Genk.

The loss leaves Brugge sitting bottom with eight points after 18 rounds of player and in serious danger of going down come the end of the season.
