Zimbabwe international Marvelous Nakamba made his first appearance for Aston Villa  when they beat Crewe by six goals to one in a Carabao Cup match to reach the third round yesterday.

This was the first match which former club Brugge and Zimbabwe’s defensive midfielder, Marvelous Nakamba started since moving to England over almost a month ago.

Aston Villa boss, Dean Smith, made 10 changes from the team that claimed their first Premier League win of the season against Everton on Friday, including handing debuts to Konsa, Matt Targett and Marvelous Nakamba.

The 25-year-old did not disappoint. According to the 4thofficial.net, Nakamba was solid.

They said:

He provided security to the backline by operating in the number six position. Looked solid in possession and rarely gave away the ball. Also moved into a deeper role to pick up the ball from the back and ease the build-up play. A promising display from the Zimbabwean international.
