Christopher Katongo scored twice in the second half to hand bottom side Henan Construction a 2-1 victory at Guizhou Renhe in the Chinese Super League today.

Katongo, the captain of the Zambia team which won the CAF Africa Cup of Nations earlier this year, cancelled out Rafa Jorda's opener for the home side after 69 minutes.

He then netted the winner with seven minutes to go as Henan claimed their first victory from their opening four games. Henan remain bottom, however, while Guizhou are seventh.
