- Hapoel Be'er Sheva
During a trial in August 2007, Nsofwa scored two goals in two Toto Cup matches, prompting a signature. He was signed by Hapoel Be'er Sheva of the Israeli Liga Leumit (National League) though too late for the Israel Football Association to allow him to play in the club's first league match. After missing the first league round, he played his first match on 25 August 2007 against Hakoah Amidar Ramat Gan. His first start was a successful one as he scored two goals and received much praise from the local supporters.
On 29 August 2007, he died from a sudden heart failure during a training match against Maccabi Be'er Sheva at Vasermil Stadium. 40 minutes later, he was brought to Soroka Medical Center where he was declared DOA.
He was buried on Thursday 6 September in his home country of Zambia at Lusaka's Old Leopards Hill cemetery. His funeral was attended by former president Frederick Chiluba as well as several members of the Zambian national squad. As a mark of respect, Hapoel Be'er Sheva have retired the number six shirt in his honour.
