International Zimbabwean Footballer Marvellous Nakamba was among his team Aston Villa’s starting 11 last night, The Herald reports.
Nakamba was included in the first IX in the second round of the Carabao Cup last night which came six months after Villa lost 1-2 in the Carabao Cup final to Manchester City at Wembley in March.
According to the publication:
Nakamba lost his place, in the Villa first team, towards the end of the season as the Birmingham side battled their way to safety. However, Villa manager, Dean Smith, threw Nakamba into the mix last night in what was his team’s first competitive match this season. Villa were not in action, in the first week of the Premiership campaign, and hosted Manchester United in a friendly, at Villa Park, which they won 1-0.
Villa’s lineup yesterday laid to rest speculation that the talented player might leave Aston Villa since he signed with the club last year in August.
