24 year year old Zambian forward Lazaros Kambole stole the show on Saturday evening in the CAF champions league raising the bar very high for all superstars in world football.
Linked with a move to South African giants,Orlando Pirates,the Zesco United man who inherited the number 10 Jersey from Winston Kalengo scored a hat trick for Zesco United FC within 5 minutes, to set a record of the fastest Continental club competition hat trick of all time.
Kambole’s 5 minutes hat trick smashes the records of multiple world football stars plying their trade at even more exposed clubs than Zesco.
Bafetimbi Gomis’ hat trick within 8 minutes in a 7 goals to 1 win over Dynamo Zagreb,Cristiano Ronaldo’s 11 minutes hat trick for Real Madrid in an 8 nil win over Malmo plus Neymar Jnr’s Hat trick against Celtic in a 6-1 win for Barcelona, all in the champions league are now secondary to Lazaros’ Miraculous hat trick in a 3 nil win for Zesco United over Mbabane Swallows in the CAF champions league.
