Pembe boot brave Victors out of Confed Cup

Darling Club Motema Pembe of Democratic Republic of Congo knocked out Uganda’s only Caf Confederations Cup representative Victors F.C with a 1-0 late minute victory at Stadium of Martyrs in Kinshasa yesterday.

Biafanga scored Pembe’s only goal in the 91st minute which enabled the Congolese side to qualify to another round on 2-1 goal aggregate, sending the gallant Victors home to concentrate on the Uganda Super League.

Victors' poor scoring skills cost them  as Ssebuza Sula and Judah Mugalu failed to push the ball past the goal keeper when they were left with one man to beat in the 27th and 61th minutes respectively.

However, though Victors goal keeper conceded a late minute goal, he made many brilliant saves, a case in point was Labama’s deflected shot in the 25th minute .

Victors’ Hood Mayanja almost netted in the 87th minute, following a brilliant free kick, which missed by a few inches from the goal post.

The Stadium of Martyrs was filled to capacity  with over 80.000 fans who came to witness the occasion of the home team's qualification and Victors benfited from over 20.000 fans from Pembe’s rival club F.C Vitors, who made the Ugandan side feel at home away from home.

The Victors team was welcomed by Uganda’s ambassador to DR. Congo Mr. Kinobe who led them to the pitch and provided them with descent accommodation and other facilities.

Victors coach Goerge "Best" Nsimbe said his side played well but was let down by  what he called " a sub standard referee".
