FC Platinum crowned champions of Zimbabwe
FC Platinum are the 2017 Zimbabwe Castle Lager Premier Soccer League champions after beating Chapungu 2-0 at Ascot Stadium in Gweru.
And they got their work done early, Rodwell Chinyengetere with a header from a the penalty spot meeting an Elvis Moyo cross in the second minute. Soon after Ali Sadiki took advantage of some comical defending by Chapungu and doubled the lead.
Dynamos’s 1-0 victory over Chicken Inn became academic as FC Platinum finally got their first ever title, a second for coach Norman Mapeza.
So impressive have the champions been. They conceded only 15 goals in 34 matches.
And with that FC Platinum become the first team from outside Harare or Bulawayo to win the title since 1966.
