Iconic Moment

When Zambia’s Joseph Musonda was substituted in the 11th minute during the AFCON final match due an injury sustained in a tackle, he was beside him with grief. He’d tried to play on but it was obvious he couldn’t do it. I felt bad for him because it was a cruel blow to his hopes of playing the whole match.

After the match was over, the coach, Herve Renard did something so selfless and touching, it reduced me to tears – he picked up Musonda and carried him to the pitch to join his team mates in the celebrations. This was a truly iconic moment that summed up the joy and success achieved by the whole team. A salute to the classy coach! 


I love how the coach left the players to their celebrations. He had prepared them well and it was good to see that unlike other coaches he didn't want to steal their thunder.

Indeed an Iconic moment that night was once in a life time.And that moment showed what a great leader he is.
