  1. Good job guys, its always good to hear a Zambian player is making it big abroad and for that I would thank Chris Katongo and Jacob Mulenga for scoring last weekend. Please continue the good work. To Collins Mbesuma keep on trying and working even harder so that you can return your place in the national team. To the guys in Germany, Moses Sichone and Andrew Sinkala I still have faith in you guys its a pity you were not called for the Zambia vs Congo match you could have made a difference and I hope they will call in the next game. Isaac Chansa I have always loved to watch you play and I’m glad you heading to Sweden soon. James Chamanga keep banging those goals and make it as your to leave South Africa by the end of this season. My advice is please try to be more professional and by this I mean to be 1. Be discipline, 2. Have self confidence, 3. always working hard and 4. put your country first. Why do we still love Kalu? Its because he practised most of the 4 points.

  2. I saw a highlight of Moses Sichone’s goal on TV. he is performing well at his club and is currently skipper. Let’s continue to support our boys, both we Zambians in the diaspora and Zambians at home

  3. Though we in Nigeria do not watch many Zambian professioners playing in competitive matches away, we are always happy to hear that they are doing well. Whenever I say I am from Zambia, people here ask of Kalusha Bwalya ,he is more popular than even our political leaders why because he did his asigniment well as a footballer. we are proud of him and we need to have more zambians players to carry the same respect.

  4. my concern is still with collins.working with white people is different with working with FAZ.alway keep
    time.people in europe work with time.if you are given 3 days its three days not 3.5

  5. Patriotism in our Zambian soccer Proffessional players
    is key to the success at local and international levels. Mbesuma,Katongo,Mulenga,Sichone,sinkala and the rest in the South Africa should be very careful and remember Mother Zambia from which they were baked.

    Keep up with the Good job and we only hope you can save Zambia an embarancement by Qualify to Ghana 2008.

  6. Congratulations to Chris Katongo,Jacob Mulenga,Sichone and other Zambian players.Playes like Chris Katongo and Mbesuma delight us a lot.Listen guys the chances of Chipolopolo boys’s qualifying to Ghana 2008 are only in your hands.Please do not let us down.To FAZ,I would say maintain coach P.Phiri and Simukonda.Just prepare the team adquately.You’ll beat Congo for sure.All the best.

  7. I am a Zambian based in South Africa and for the first time I have come across this site which is keeping a tag on our boys playing soccer outside Zambia. My advice to the Zambian footballers who trek to South Africa is that they should aim to spend not more than two seasons in SA’s Castle Premiership because believe you me, soccer here is not as competitive as people want to make out and it is played like street soccer. Our own league is poor but has better talent.

    Use SA’s exposure to get to the tougher leagues in Europe as this will make the mighty Chipolopolo even stronger.

    I am glad the number of Zedian players in Europe is slowly increasing. It is good for our football.

  8. Congratulations to Lusaka times for keeping us Zambian soccer fans informed with what is going on with our soccer players at home and in foreign lands. With that in mind I would also want to urge you to not only be focused on the European based but you should bring reports of our players who are playing professional football in other parts or the world i.g. Malaysia, the USA, China…etc and this you can do it by asking FAZ the list of all the players playing out side Zambia. I have in mind players like: Chaswe Nsofwa, Lloyd Mumba, Harry Milanzi, Elijah Mwasanga and so many others.. I remember sometime back the national team would play foreign based players and that would give bring in serious competition of places in the national team.

  9. I agree with Chutalu-US selection should be fair to all players. You know in Sweden we have 2 young player who can even play for the under 20 national team by the names of Edwin Phiri and Boyd Mwila who plays for Orgryte FC. We have a lot of players in Malaysia like Francis Kombe, Chaswe Nsofwa, Emmanuel Zulu just to mention a few, why can’t FAZ give them another chance? I know some have made mistakes in the past but if they are playing well and deliver who is FAZ not selecting them? At the end of the day its us the Zambians who will be happy with results. Call all the professionals who are not in the current national team and then let them play the current national team so that they prove themselves.

  10. By the way Christopher Katongo is still top scorer in the South African League , months after he left for Europe. He is still in line to collect the top scorer award to be presented when the South African league comes to a close.

  11. great idea by steven mumba,let FAZ call all the pros that dont play in patrick phiris team and play the current national team ,so we fans can have an idea how they are the way ,where is bernard makufi?
