Against all odds, Zimbabwe’s Dynamos football club at the weekend booted out Tunisia’s Etoile du Sahel, African Champions League title holder, of this year’s competition away from home. The Zimbabweans took a slender 1-0 lead into the weekend match in Sousse, Tunisia, and, in a rare feat, beat Etoile du Sahel 1-0 on the club’s home turf to progress to the next round on a 2-0 aggregate. The lone goal was scored by Benjamin Marere in the first stanza of the match. The victory, the biggest upset of weekend African Champions League matches, sent Dynamos supporters into wild celebrations back home. The club is the reigning soccer champion in Zimbabwe but, paired against Etoile du Sahel – and away from home – few had given Dynamos a chance.
