KABWE – In-form Orlando Pirates' Thembinkosi Lorch will lead the charge against Zambia's Green Eagles in Kabwe, Zambia, in the Caf Champions League preliminary-round match on Saturday.
There may be a lot of players who stand out in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League, but one that is on everyone’s lips at the moment is Lorch.
The Pirates star has carried on from where he left off last season with the form that saw him walk away with the Player of the Season award.
He led Bafana Bafana’s shock 1-0 victory over Egypt in the Last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations, sending South Africa to the quarterfinal.
The Pirates man scored the only goal of that match that saw players like Egyptian and Liverpool star Mohamed Salah weep in front of their adoring fans at the Cairo International Stadium.
