Flames inspirational midfielder Robert â€˜Baggioâ€™ Ngâ€™ambi stood up to be counted when he scored Platinum Starsâ€™ first league goal this season to beat Moroka Swallows 3-1 on Sunday.
Â Ngâ€™ambi, who swung upfield to beautifully plant home Joseph Malongoaneâ€™s well curled corner kick, said he was more excited with the significance of his strike..
â€œObviously I was very happy to score my teamâ€™s first league goal this season and hopefully it will inspire me to have a great season,â€ said Ngâ€™ambi from South Africa.
The other goals for Stars came from Siphelele Mthembu and Benson Mhlongo. Ngâ€™ambi was the architect of the second goal when he broke down the leftflank and his cross was perfect for Mthembu to side-foot home.
Apparently Ngâ€™ambi was one of the only two Malawian players who featured in the PSLâ€™s opening games at the weekend. The other was Harry Nyirenda who played a full game for Black Leopards when they beat Limbikani Mzavaâ€™s Bloemfontein Celtic 3-2.
Mzava is yet to be cleared by Football Association of Malawi (FAM) because Celtic are yet to pay Escom United the transfer-fee balance.
Flames striking duo of Atusaye Nyondo and Robin Ngalande were not featured by SuperSport United and Bidvest Wits respectively.
SuperSport drew 1-1 with Ajax Cape Town whereas Wits went down 2-0 to Free State Stars.
