Evans Oduro scores match-winner in Zambia for Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy against Pirates


The Ghanaian was on target when Kabwe recorded an important victory as they hope for qualification back to the top-flight

Ghanaian midfielder Evans Oduro was on target when Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy defeated Livingston Pirates 2-1 in Zambia second-tier league on Sunday.

The youngster, who has been having one of the best seasons of his career, was all over the field in the opening quarter hour of the game but could not find the back of the net.

Thomas Likafi opened the scoring for Kabwe Youth by the 28th minute after a quick break.

Although, Livingston Pirates drew level against the run of play very late in the first half, Osei scored the match winner with a wonderful finish by the 47th minute.

The Ghanaian rose above his Pirates defender and met a wonderful cross from teammate Peter Chinyama which he headed home beyond the reach of the away goalkeeper.

Kabwe are currently sixth on the log and will travel away next weekend in their bid to win automatic qualification for the top-flight next season.
