Select World Leagues round-up

[Posted 16 Aug 2010]
[By Brighton Mupangavanhu]
Drogba led the performance by African players in Europe with 3 goals for Chelsea

The European leagues have entered their second or third weeks of league matches. A good number of African players play in various European leagues. There are few South African and Zimbabwean players in big European teams. Here is how African players fared in Europe over the weekend.

Austria

Zimbabwe's Justice 'Chief' Majabvi's LASK Linz is now playing in that country's second tier league after being relegated from the Austrian Bundesliga last season. Linz  beat SG SK Austria Klagenfurt in an Austrian Cup over the weekend.

Belgium

South African Anele Ngcongca's in-form club Genk is on the rampage in Belgium early on in the season. The team which walloped AA Gent 4-0 away only last week, was back at it again this weekend, and massacred Charleroi 5-0 at home. Genk deservedly now sit at the summit of the Jupiler league with 9 points and a massive goal difference of +10 goals. Fellow South African Lance Davids' Lierse continued to sing the blues after suffering a 1-0 loss away at KV Mechelen.  Cercle Bruges, home to Zimbabwe's Vusa Nyoni and Honour Gombami, have not lost a match since the beginning of the season. On Sunday they beat Club Bruges 3-1 at home. Their countryman Cephas Chimedza's St Truiden is finding it difficult to replicate last season's fine form. They fell 0-2 to KV Kortrijk over the weekend.

Denmark

Quincy Antipas of Zimbabwe has moved to a new team, Sonderjyske in the Danish Superliga. His new team lost 1-3 to Odense BK at home in a league match.

England

Barclays Premier Soccer League

Ivory Coast's Didier Drogba ruled the roost in England among all African players. He signalled his clear intentions to retain the Golden Boot with a hattrick as Chelsea ran amok in a league match against PSL returnees West Bromwich. Ghana's Michael Essien played full 90 minutes of the match,while Salomon Kalou replaced his compatriot Drogba in the 70th minute. By then big Drog had already scored his hattrick. Ivory Coast's borther Yaya Toure and Kolo Toure failed to inspire Manchester City to a victory against Arsenal at home in a rather dull 0-0 draw. Togolese Emmanuel Adebayor was only introduced for Tevez in the 83rd minute. 

The opening dayof the PSL did not start so well for two South Africans. Steven Pienaar of saw his Everton team lose away 1-0 at Blackburn. The week has not been so rosy for Benni MCcarthy. After enduring criticism from West Ham chairperson David Sullivan about his weight problems, Benni received'sa baptism of fire at the hands of Aston Villa. Villa vented all their frustrations of losing coach Martin O'neil before the resumption of the PSL and walloped West Ham 3-0 at home. Meanwhile another South African, Kagisho Dikgacoi could afford a smile following his team's 0-0 draw away at Bolton Wanderers.

League One 

Zimbabwean Onismor Bhasera is playing in an awkward league for a player of his calibre, who only a few months ago was deemed premiership material. His team Plymouth Argyle who caused a stir with a shock 1-0 win away at Southampton, were held to a 1-1 draw at home by Carlisle United. The Zimbabwean left back played the full 90 minutes of the game.

France

Ligue 1

Sambou Yatabare of Mali and Ismalia N'diaye (Senegal) are celebrating their team's incredible start to the Fench Ligue 1 season. Last week they shocked the world by beating champions Marseille 2-1 away from home. This past weekend they sent more shock waves by beating last year's Champions league semi-finalists Lyon 3-2 at home. Ismael Bangoura of Guinea and Ghana's Asamoah Gyan celebrated Rennes' return to form with a convincing 3-0 away routing of Nancy.

Ligue 2

Gangly retired Zimbabwe internantional defensive midfielder Harlington Shereni's Nantes scored a crucial away victory at Troyes whom they beat 2-0. Young attacking midfielder Ovidy Karuru of Zimbabwe saw his club Bolougne SM secure an away draw and a point at SCO Angers over the weekend.

Poland

Costa Nhamoinesu (Zimbabwe) of Zaglebie Lubin saw his team lose 1-2 at home  to Gornik Zabrze. On a sad weekend for Zimbabwean players in Poland's topflight league, Dickson Choto Legia Warsaw was soundly beaten 3-0 by Polonia Warszawa in a Warsaw derby.

Liga 1

In the second tier league of Poland, Zimbabwe's Clement Matawu is enjoying great form with his club Podbeskidzie Bielsko Biala, following his team's 5-0 demolition of LKS Nieciecza away from home. Last week Matawu's team defeated Polkowice 2-0.

Romania

In the Romanian Liga division, the topflight league in Romania, Zimbabwe's Mike Temwanjira and his team FC Vaslui had a weekend full of smiles following Vaslui's 2-0 victory over FC Brasov earlier in the weekend.
