The Captain of Chipolopolo of Zambia,Rainford Kalaba was in great form on Sunday as he handed TP Mazembe the CAF Confederations Cup title when he scored a brace to help his club win 4 – 1 on the day to walk away with a 5 – 2 aggregate scoreline against Mo Beijaia of Algeria.

The skillful midfielder scored Mazembe's second when he volleyed from outside the box in the 42nd minute and third with another good effort from outside the box in the 63rd minute.

The Algerians pulled didn't surrender though as they pulled one back but the Congolese side added the forth late in the game.

The Zambian Contigents of Nathan Sinkala,Kabaso Chongo,Given Singuluma and Jonas Sakuwaha also received medals despite not playing the second leg.


Kalaba has now won the Africa Cup of Nations tournament, CAF Champions League and CAF Confederations Cup.
Mazembe will play Mamelodi Sundowns in the CAF Super Cup.
