Samatta Hands Mazembe Champions League Title

Tanzanian international, Mbwana Samatta scored once again as his TP Mazembe side won their fifth CAF Champions League title with a 2-0 (4-1 aggregate) second leg victory over USM Alger at the TP Mazembe Stadium in Lubumbashi, Congo.

Samatta, scorer of the second goal in the 2-1 away win in the first leg at the Stade Omar Hamad last October 31, netted from the spot after 74 minutes to put his side 3-1 up in the tie.

The finalist for African-based CAF Player of the Year award then went on to assist Roger Assale’s 95th minute goal that crowned a dominant win for the Congolese side.

Samatta and his striking partner Thomas Ulimwengu go into history books as the first Tanzanians to win a high-profile continental football medal.

Mazembe took home a $1.5 million prize and a place at the 2015 FIFA Club World Cup in Japan. The Algerian side pocketed $1 million for finishing as runners-up.
