  9. Special tribute to a gallant son of mother Zambia CHASWE ‘MILLA’ NSOFWA.I remember how the lad was tearing defenses when they formed a lethal combination with the likes of Numba Mummamba and Kelvin Kaindu at Sensational Zanaco.At national level,he put icing on the cake during his last appearance when we clobbered Angola 2-nil in the COSAFA cup by scoring the second goal.’Milla’will be sadly missed mostly the impact his humility had on the lads in the national team.A message to the lads who will put on national colours next weekend against Bafana Bafana.Even as you observe the minute silence,reflect deep and do what would have delighted ‘MILLA’ and that`s carrying the day against Bafana.CHASWE NSOFWA,may your soul rest in eternal peace and my prayers go out the family that the LORD richly comfort and bless you during such difficult and trying moments.CHASWE ‘MILLA’ NSOFWA gone but certainly will never be forgotten.

  10. What is going on with footballers dying on the pitch ??
    This is an indication for more medical personnel to be present at matches with proper equipment.

    Us madalas who play social games over the weekend must be careful…..there are enough widows as it is already !! The Hangover Eleven (my team),have taken note of the now hazardous nature of the modern game and i suggest all other habitual players and professionals alike, take heed of this alarming phenomenom.
    Condolences to the bereaved family.
