His team went on to win the match 2-nil and shot-up to the top position.

Speaking to the Zimbabwean from his hospital bed, Moyo confirmed the injury and expressed happiness as he did not fracture his ankle.

'I was hospitalised yesterday after an ankle injury. I am just glad because X-ray shows no fracture to my ankle it's just swollen. I believe God will help me heal quick as I want to be part of the winning team," he said.

Moyo made history when he became the first and solitary Zimbabwean player to ply his trade in the Zambian league.

He temporarily quit football in 2007 after economically and political instability engulfed the country and relocated to SA where he was spotted by former Zambian great player Mwenya Chipepo in an SA Park resuscitating his career.

Despite the pressure and fatigue of prolonged absence in professional football, Nduna managed to gem in well at Zesco taking over the left back position. He also helped them to championship victory on his debut season.

"My first season was difficult because I heard three years of absence in competitive football. I managed to fit into their system of play and fortunately we were crowned champions at the end of my debut season," he added.

However, Moyo also encountered difficulties in handling language and adjusting to new variety of food.
