Jesse Were’s brace helped Zesco United to progress to the next stage of the Caf Champions League following 5-1 aggregate win over AS Sonidep of Niger.

The Ndola based-side beat the Petroleum Oil sponsored outfit at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Tuesday to complete the job that they started away in Niger, where they picked a 2-1 win.

Were scored in either half to hand the Team ya Ziko a deserved victory and a smooth passage into the first stage. The inform Kenyan striker gave Zesco United the lead early in the first half before completing the job with a second goal.

The former Tusker forward opened the scoring in the first minute before Lazarus Kambole doubled Zesco United's lead in the 26th minute only to hand the scoring boots back to Were, who completed the job with a 55th minute strike.
