  1. LT you got it all wrong on the names of players selected. Singuluma and Signs for example were left out, why have you included them?

  2. We must ensure to bash the team that is coming to Zambia. We have called all who are required the players that are they to perform.

  3. Let us not only play entertaining footbal where we are going to have a superior ball possession and fail to score a cricket score line. We want to win by not less than 4 to Zero. I know we have a player in Mayuka who can ensure that his presence is not only seen but felt with results in the absence of Jacob Mulenga. Please let hime be partnered with the bull dozing James Chamanga and the left be left to Felix Katongo as he has the required speed skill and always wants results by hitting on the goal. David Simuyuni
