Champions League: Samatta sets three records in Genk obliteration

The striker has now scored on his debut, as well as becoming the first Tanzanian to feature in Europe’s prestigious club competition

Three records tumbled for Tanzania captain Mbwana Samatta as Genk got spanked 6-2 by Salzburg in Tuesday’s Champions League fixture. Samatta shook off a knee injury to make ‎Felice Mazzu’s squad for the clash staged at the Wals-Siezenheim stadium.

In the process, he wrote his name in the history books is the first Tanzanian to feature in the Uefa Champions League.

His maiden appearance went sour as Erling Haland’s hat-trick gave the hosts a 5-1 advantage at half-time with Jhon Lucumi getting his club’s lone goal.
