  1. He talks alot confusing defenders at the back,in the process end up confusing himself. He should cool down and concetrate.

  2. HE IS STUPID. BECAUSE OF FEW AWARDS HE HAS RECEIVED THINKS HE CAN LEAVE THE GOAL POST AND BEGIN TO TACKLE WITH PLAYER. HE NEARLY MESSED UP! HE NEEDS TO SHAKE OFF HIS PRIDE OR HE WILL LEAD THE COPPER BULLETS NO WHERE GOOD BUT TO SHAME.

  3. very sound keeper and looks like a good person to be around his the captain of freestate stars now thou he does makes silly mistakes like Etos goal in the Last afcon that went thru his legs …..his like Pepe rhena brilliant at some times but silly at others

  4. Wishing him all the best. he should have a number of good defenders infront of him otherwise mistakes can occur at any given time :
    )

  5. We just do not have a choice. Last afcon he pushed Jeremy’s cross into the goal. Cameroun ended up beating us when were leading. When we were playing SA he went far off the line and a simple ship embarrassed us. One game at this tournament he handled the ball out side his area. Earnjed us a free kick and himself a yellow card. He is an overconfident tonga. I wish we had a choice.

  6. I think he talked too much to defenders and drained a lot of energy thus we allowed unnecessary goal. In another breath as a goalkeeper he is in a position to see how the ball is moving to advise defenders. It is not easy in such competitions. Renard went mad too at one point throwing down the water bottle. I thought he might be ejected from the ground. Good work Chipolopolo. I love you!!!

  7. I think all those condemning Mweene do not just appreciate. He played extremely well especially in the second half when Senegal became dangerous. There is nothing wrong with him shouting if he sees that the defenders are not doing their work it is part of team work. Viva chipolopolo

  8. the africa cup is the best tornament so far, am sure most brain washed zambians who watch the english premier league religiously ve seen the fine talent thats on the african continent unlike the EPL full of fluffers, medioca players with below average skills. Kennedy mweene is fit for superior leagua like serial A OR LALI LIGA. The british media is day in day out over hipping about epl fitakataka
