In the best finish to a ZFC league season ever Chipolopolo pipped the Indomitable Lions to the ZFC title with a 3-2 win at the Toronto City Sports Centre.

Hussein Walji scored with 5 minutes to go making it 3-2 for Abdul Champsi’s boys in blue; a result that leapfrogged Chipolopolo to the top of the table.

The final game of the ZFC season will go down in history alongside other final day classics such as Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Liverpool in 1989 and Manchester City’s 3-2 victory over QPR in 2012.

Here’s the ZFC playoff schedule:

  • 29th March – Playoff Quarter-Finals
    • Q1 – 7:30pm – Chipolopolo vs Gymkhana
    • Q2 – 8:30pm – Indomitable Lions vs Polisi Dodoma

    • S2 – 10:30pm – Winner Q2 vs Winner Q3
