  1. India is not as bad as most people think, if anything for some would be pros, it is a beter destination than south africa in monetary terms.

  2. Can someone please advise FAZ that this is a match fixing scam about to happen. Someone is making money out of this arrangement.

    • It is not too late go on reporting your findings direct to FAZ and/or FIFA. Remember to give facts to support your claims. Hyvää poika :)

  3. GOA??? Get serious Zambians. This is Nonsense, A national team with a select side, let’s get serious. This is misuse of funds. You mean there is no better National team in Africa?? Very useless. FAZ and who ever made such a stu.pid decision are not serious.

  4. Just read this article and I am not sure what sport this is Zambia National Team? National Team of what (cricket, basketball, football, hockey etc). Until I googled Herve Renard (Zambian National FOOTBALL Team Coach) did I know its football!! LT some journalists you are! 

  5. The fact that they even managed to score a goal means our defense is weak. This India training raises a lot of questions
