Zambia’s chances of a first Africa Cup quarterfinal place since 1996 dimmed after they crushed to Cameroon on Sunday in Lubango who yet again taught their opponents what it means to have a winning mentality.

It was typical Zambia display of early passion before needlessly capitulating thrown in with poor tactical changes by  Herve Renard.

Jacob Mulenga put Zambia ahead in the 8th minutes as the team dominated Cameroon in the opening 45 minutes of the game.

However, injury playmaker Rainford Kalaba and the departure of Felix Katongo who was replaced by Isaac Chansa in the second half failed to give Zambia any dynamism.

Kennedy Mweene too was a culprit in Zambia’s defeat when he suffered a bout of the Nayim a la David Seaman when he failed to deal with a Geremi thumped ball in the 68th minute.

Stopilla Sunzu found out what a cunning Samuel Eto’o could do when the inter-Milan striker made it 2-1 in the 71st minute.

Christopher Katongo who had been blowing hot and cold throughout the match stole some undeserved glory when he converted a penalty won by Mulenga after an ugly challenge from Cameroon goalkeeper Idriss Kameni in the 82nd minute.

Mahamadou Idrissou headed in the winner on 85 minutes to cap an impressive display by him after coming on in the second half.

Zambia switch camp to Benguela today where they will face  Group D leaders Gabon on Thursday in a simultaneous kickoff with that of Cameroon and Tunisia in Lubango.

Meanwhile Gabon drew 0-0 against Tunisia to remain top on 4 points while Cameroon are number 2 with 3 points, Tunisia are 3rd on 2 points and Zambia bottom on 1 point.

    Lack of experience by chipolopolo, cant afford to make silly mistakes like that to indomitable cameroon.

    What cost us the game was the way subs were made. We defended the 1-0 for 45mins and in my opinion, no player deserved to be subsituted. I hope the coach was not interfered with by you know who. Cameroun subsituted because they needed a goal. We started leaking after removing Kalaba and became worse with the removal of Joseph and Felix. I dont understand what these players did to be removed.

    I do take into account what happened but whatever the case, Chipolopolo is still my team and I am confident in their potential. I do not subscribe to the notion of negativity even before the team plays. There where people who where predicting Camerooon (20 Zambia (0) even before the game was played. How does a team win if the people they are representing have no confidence in them. It is disgusting.

    Zambians must be proud of their team whatever happens and should encourage them as well as support them. They did their best. I reject the saying, “to avoid disappointment, lower your expectations”. I will still have high expectations for my team even if they win, lose or tie. So GO ZAMBIA , GO CHIPOLOPOLO

    Please. Do not just condemn Zambia. Yes we are always losing but I see some positive signs in the attitude though we still lose concentration during the game. Cameroun is now nothing but experience. Everyone is now madala in Cameroun. They are goiung nowhere in the tournament. Z will bounce back and meet Egypt in the quarter finals.

    Chamanga is scoring against Gabon.

    Morning Bloggers I am just trying to recover from the loss. Does anyone here think we can beat gabon even fye 1 – 0? anyone?

  8. vote

    Most of those chibuku boys dont deserve to play in the national team.Why should Chamanga with his Chinese football be given more play at the expense of good & sharp strikers like Singuluma & C. Mulenga.The central defence needs a more experienced player which the newly converted Sunzu can’t cope. This team needs a complete overhaul. Start by firing the hand-picked coach Renard. This man has messed us up big time. The Administration is a total failure. They must all go. Only then, can our football improve.

    We still have a chance of qualifying. 1 – 0 win is enough to put us thru to next round. Our coach should try to give chance some other guys also to play in the final group match against Gabon. Go Zambia, Go Zambia, Quarter finals here we come.

    the defence is lacking players like tana , billy mwanza. can we fly them to angola quickly before we beat gabon

    The problem i think is that Ba Zambia Ba mwenso. When they see E’to and company…ma mwe! Ati, “chikali chi E’to Boyi”. They have no self belief. To add salt to injury, Renard aletupontela mu todays paper! Renard must be told that just as much as we appreciate that in soccer there is also losing, it is the manner in which we keep losing that upsets us, ala. He should never ever say what he has said to the Zambian people again. After all, Nim’mpiya shesu alelya mambala.:-w

  16. vote

    Pipo… Mweene cost us the game! But the truth is all the goals apart from the Idrissou goal were as a result of mistakes by defenders and goal-keepers. Zambia were not outrawed by Cameroun but our goalie’s loss of concentration piled pressure on all the other guys. Cameroun also made a lot of comical errors and Eto’o has aknowledged that the match was difficult for them too. By the way no team has qualified yet till the last matches on Thursday so we still have a chance. Do not be pessimistic the team is playing well. Go Zambia Go!

    In Zambia we have very huge potential which needs to be harnessed properly. All the games that Zambia play, we are never completely outdone, the issue is poor finishing. This fact is not as a result of the players nor the coach, it about the government. There is misplacement of priorities, we do not have the infrastructure to support soccer then at the end we expect to win. impossible. We need to put our house in order then we shall get the result. I was hurt by the result to say the least but forever behind the copper bullets, come rain come sunshine. Those who denounce chipolopolo just pretend unless you are not patriotic to mother Z.

  18. vote

    We played some of the continent’s best teams at the tournament – Tunisia & Cameroun including Nigeria in the preparatory games. In all the matches, Zambia was a better side but lacked that extra effort, that “killer” punch to finish off the opponent. We’ve the potential like most bloggers have observed. What we now need is a good coach who can harness the potential, a coach who can identify skill/talent in a player or possibly convert a defender into a deadly striker.
    We only have one national team & the onus is on us to clean up the mess. Kick out the non performers. For how long are we going to continue receiving such poor results.

    #13. Capitalist. If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, cries like a duck it is a duck. No need to full yourself with high expectations. Ba Zambia Makula. we are all Zambians and we love the country and our soccer that is why we are blogging. But the fact remains our team is useless until they prove as otherwise.

  20. vote

    No. 23 Do not forget that it is Billy Mwanza and Nketani that made silly mistakes against the same Camerounians in the last Africa Cup and we were pulverized by 5-1. You pipo forget easily. Tana was in the CHAN team in Ivory Coast and what did he do against Tanzania or the DRC. We just need to score more then there is less pressure on the defenders. Chipolopolo was defending well till the Mweene chap conceded that comedy of a goal and put pressure on his friends including us fans watching on telly. We can still beat Gabon coz it’s possible but why are you worried when you pipo did not even believe in this team anyway? Go Zambia Go!

  21. vote

    #29. Nonsense. infrastruture won’t win you games. How do you blame conceding goals like the first one on not having state of the art facilities. Be real we don’t have the talent. just look at the leagues where our plyers play. China? Angola. You can build Wembly in Zambia that is not the solution. Ground roots youth soccer is our solution under 11, 13 17 . With out Zccm this is what we are. We should build hospitals then waste money on this useless team

  22. vote

    What happened yesturday is a true representation of the greater Zambian society in need of a complete social overhaul.
    Ssome would want to argue that there is no link, well look around the country and see who the youth look up to…sad isnt it?
    Talent alone is not enough to WIN, it must be nurtured by soccer academys from around the age of 12 onwards however we have previous soccer stars like kalu to thank for giving us one…i wish.

    In comparison to other countries that do well on the continent, we have nothing to show for an organised soccer body that can bring change to this decade long of draught for a WIN. send those FAZ technical staff to overseas exchange programs and all they do is dose of the workshops and spend countless time on shopping sprees.:)>-

  23. vote

    29, Mimi, The problem of poor defending is more of an eyesore to Zed than that of poor finishing. The fact is, we have scored first in the last two games, but failed to maintain the leads to sweet victory due to poor defending.

    I have been mourning :((:(( since Great Galu and his P.E teacher took over our national team. I will not comment or tear our boys down. These are the boys Patrick Phiri worked with and during that time and all the international football medals they have in their Cabinet, trivial as they may be-COSAFA CESAFA, are from Patrick Phiri’s era. With this Great Galu and his P E teacher., our boys have not won a single medal, nothing, nothing, even for COSAFA or CESAFA and you expect to win a big one now!!!. Awe mwe, I say much after the tournament. We have good boys and the future is great. I believe in our boys. They are doing the best way the know how. Remember the P.E teacher’s target is to get to second round, for all that money he is paid.

  25. vote

    No. 33 Mbuzi. I will excuse you for using that language since I have understood your problem. You do not understand what infrustracture means. All those things you are talking about youth soccer have gone down because there is no infrustructure support. If we do not have the talent, what makes you think the under 11s, 14s will get the talent from/ and without infrustructure where will they be identified from. So was ZCCM providing the talent or it was infrustrature and resources. You must be shallow minded.

    Gentlemen (, don’t be so critical of our team. Much as it is painful to lose, we must look at the big picture. I believe most of you bloggers are upset hence your misdirection of your vitriolic anger. As is with EVERY LEVEL OF MANAGEMENT in this country( tourist managers, absentee managers, internet-management-style-managers), it is expecting too much when there’s no leadership to steer the team. What do you expect when we have sub-contracted the running of the beautiful game to mercenaries? For as long as the current FAZ executive is in charge, we forget about going anywhere in terms of football. Don’t blame the palyers, BLAME THE MANAGERS. PERIOD!

    We scored first, failed to hold on to the lead. They equalised and took the initiative. The Zambia National team perenially suffers from inability to hold on to a lead countless times. examples are plenty. So we are again inching closer to the “next time we shall win syndrome”. We failed the world cup journey, we are failing gallantly in Angola, we have been failing to go past the 1st round in this tournament since 1998. Our coach says he is realistic, his goal was to qualify us to Angola & get to 2nd round only not to qualift for the WorldCup. He once said the world will laugh at us for thinking we can go to WorldCup!!!! Kalu also tipped Nigeria to lift the cup in Angola not Zambia. Angola bane put up stadiums 4 new ones in record time. Us awe kwena nothing to show for.

    Bali teya bwino abaiche, except for that mistake by Mweene. Secondly, they started second half badly by trying to defend a one goal and that cost us the game big time. The best way to defend is to attack. Its not over until its over, come thursday, the results will be interesting.

    Fellow soccer fans! Did you honestly not expect Eto not to score in 90 minutes against Zambia. Is he not the same guy that has perenially caused problems for world no 1s like Casilas, Ferdinand, Van der Sar among many! Zambia scored a fluke in the first place! The coach did not make any tactical changes in the 70 minutes that Zambia had the lead! There is Clifford Mulenga, Given Singuluma and Even Mbesuma on the Zambian bench! Galu should have swallowed his pride and let Sinkala marshal our midfield! In a game like that the best defence is always to attack! Next time we should leave out all the 40 something old players like Chris Katongo! The are not Rodger Miller! Howelse do you explain the difference in energy when compred to Gigs, Canavalho, Van Der Sar etc.

    Hi famous bloggers, happy digital 2010. On the game, Shame, i really had hope that Zambia would put a smile on our faces and defeat the giants, and thats the spirit they started the game with. In the second half, the coach must have told the team to just defend thier goal, and thats what they did, unfortunately, they weren’t even good at it, they were too scared to approach their opponents, i wonder what defence tactics the coach teaches them really. Everytime cameroon got the ball, they started running towards thier keeper instead of running towards the ball, to distract the player….??? And everytime the ball went towards the cameroon goal past, there was nobody, coz everyone was busy shielding Mr Mweene. I think they kind of tried, but just not good enuf…:x

    :-?..yes the lions showed us the art of winning but we failed to show them the art of defending .maybe the tactics could have paid off if only we attacked as we defend .kicking the ball up front everytime only helped cameroon to constantly build up attacks until the defence finally succumbed to the pressure .any team could not survive that endless surge to the goalmouth . no wonder mweene was first to crack . in a nut shell , they played well …hope the can learn something from that game about the art of winning and that is….constant pressure… and try to win against gabon .:-w

  49. vote

    The boys did their best otherwise we could have been hammered 6-1. What played in favour in the indomitable Lions is experience. Despite being down even when we equalized they remained focused. I like the way the lions approach to game they allow you to score at least. The technical bench made silly of themselves by make subsitutions and trying to defend 1-0 lead.It was an exiciting game five goals were scored and as a fan I enjoyed my self, no pressure. The diesese that is affecting our National Team is lack of goal poachers. Othwewise we are supposed to be preparing to prepare receiving the boys at the airport and later disband the technicl bench. There is need to maintain the same team though with slight changes. Sunzu is a liability to the team let him find something else to do.

    the boys went into that game expecting to lose and that is precisely what happened.

    Can we all (Zambian foofball fans) for once get behind this team. I think they are showing us signs of maturity and great depth within the squad. We must support the coach to build on the positives that the team showed in the last two games, which was, for the most part, good to watch Zambia coming close to the Chipolopolo boys of the 70s/80s and early 90s when we ruled Africa (footballwise).

    I think the first step has been done very well-getting Zambia playing good football and it will be a bonus if we go to the next round. The next step is to get Zambia playing more friendlies with teams in europe; we need experience in this area so that our players can get used to playing against the best players in the world. If we can do this the rest will fall in to place.

    What if a national team in actuality represents the beliefs, the current zeitgeist of a nation, i.e the Brazilian people are a thoroughly optimistic people, filled with cheer and positivity even in the past when they were faced with severe challenges economically as well as socially and yet they still soldier on remaining forever positive, which i believe as a consequence reflects in their style of soccer, and the way they have always triumphed time and again. The Germans as well are well represented by their national team the winning mentality, determination at all costs.

    The Zambian team, is gifted with skillful players, obviously the team is not yet whole, the game is about PASSION, we the people must drive that passion, do away wit myopia, which is so prevalent in the nation. Thk u.

    Kwasila manje. Just come back boys. You are losers already. You can not go anywhere even if Gabon plays with only seven-Kwati netball. You are grounded plus your coach. No headaches for me! Chapwa

    Any team is beatable talent or no talent. We need the the right frame of mind for the guys….and that only comes from the coach. Plus we need a bit more cohesion and confidence from them….which comes from the coach. We need propoer selection…ooh that’s the coach too….hmmmm lets get rid of the coach. before we blamed the coach unjustly ( remember poulsen) now it’s true. Maybe the task is beyond himright now.

    Come on guys they give the chipolopolo an honest and fair appraisal they have done much better than last AFCON. There has been great improvement which is what everyone wants. I mean before Angola we beat South Korea 4-2 yes it was a friendly but we won. So if we beat Gabon well and good lets keep improving and growing. GO CHIPOLOPOLO!
