World Cup Qualifier Fallout: Thugs attack Zambia’s striker’s home (in Zambia) for failing to score against Nigeria

 

Power Dynamos striker Alex N’gonga’s family home in Chimwemwe in Kitwe has been attacked by thugs following Zambia’s 1-0 defeat to Nigeria in their 2018 World Cup qualifier match in Uyo on Saturday, zambianobserver.com reports.

Copperbelt province police commissioner Charity Katanga says a group of people emerged from a white Toyota Landcruiser ACC 5492 and maliciously damaged two roofing sheets with stones.

Katanga says the group accused N’gonga of missing scoring chances that crashed Zambia’s hopes of qualifying to the 2018 World Cup in Russia.

She said police had launched a manhunt and a case of malicious damage to property has been opened.

N’gonga’s mother Charity told Muvi TV news that she feared for her life when she heard another person threaten to destroy the house completely.

Nigeria became the first African team to qualify for the global showpiece courtesy of Alex Iwobi’s second half strike at the Godswill Akpabio Stadium in Uyo.
