    Background: The Zambia national soccer team proved no match for a Soviet club team -- the Minsk Dynamos -- at Lusaka's Independence Stadium on Saturday (30 November).

    The Zambian side -- full of newcomers and heavily criticised for its recent poor performances -- played a mediocre one-all draw against the Russians.

    The Zambians took the lead in the second half when Joseph Mapulanga headed in a volley from Chola.

    But the Russians fought on the score the equaliser when second-half replacement Korbut slammed home a cross in the 62nd minute.

    The Russians' ball control and high-speed movements almost gave them another two goals -- both of them saved by Zambian field players when goalkeeper Emmanuel Mwape was well beaten.

    A downpour of rain early in the afternoon kept spectators away and the game was attended by a crowd of 10,000.

    The Minsk Dynamos -- with one victory and one loss in Tanzania -- were to play two more matches against the Zambians in Lusaka.
