Renard Begins CHAN Selection

Sports Renard Begins CHAN Selection

Herve Renards search for the next CAF African Nations Championship qualifying campaign starts this weekend.

Renard and his staff will be at Levy Mwanawsa Stadium in Ndola on Saturday to look at 44 trialists on the first phase of a five-stop nationwide trial tour ahead of the South Africa 2014 CHAN qualifiers that start in June when Zambia visits Botswana in a first round, first leg game.

The Zambia bench’s two-day stop in Ndola will see them look at players pooled from Copperbelt, Luapula and North Western Province.

Renard and his team will later spend another two days at Railway Grounds in Kabwe to look at another pre-selected 44 players from Central and Northern provinces.

Lusaka and Western Province players will meet at one venue in Lusaka, the Eastern and Muchinga Province team will converge in Chipata while Livingstone will date Southern Province trialists.

“With the focus on the CHAN 204 and 2013 Cosafa senior Challenge the coach Herve Renard and his technical staff have commence a nationwide assessment of a 100 of players with the view of including them in these squads with will compete in the continental championship,” Faz spokesperson Erick Mwanza said.

“Modalities for the program commence weeks back.”


  1. That’s good you should cast your net wide enough to catch new vibrant strikers. Think of how best you can also reach some talent in the remote rural areas of Zambia who may not afford to travel to provincial centres

  2. Make sure you identify good strikers from these trials because thats one department we are having problems with. Way to go though.

    • North Western… too much juju, bwanga, ask Masumba. Hooo ya maybe Masumba can be selected, he can teach Chris Katongo better dancing moves.

  3. Kamuzati kabwe,mudenda,emmanuel chipinde,should b given chance.
    This is the way to go coach.casting the net wide is the only solution to replace the misfiring blunt strikers.

  4. All players should identify themselves with a political party, make sure UNIP, HERITAGE,ADD,ZED,UDA,NAREP,COSMO PARTY,MAGANDE, DKP, take first class entry

  5. Drop the strikers! They are blunt strikers, the likes of Mayuka, the chap is finished…so fast! Go kwa Chipulukusu you will be surprised that there is hidden talent…cast the net wide!

  6. HR is just wasting these boys’ time we know this Frenchman has never been pragmatic…he has too many favourites in that squad. Remember how he and the corrupt FAZ wasted FIFA friendly dates featuring fringe players who were never selected and playing weak opponents before AFCON as HR chose to stick to same complacent players from last tournament.
    I wonder what criteria is used to pre-select these boys??

  7. Two days isnt enough time to assess 44 players, local cup games even in rural areas can help though that needs more resources… But assessing 44 pipo in days personally i thnk is not good enough.

  8. Please work on the striking force. Pick new strikers from those trials! The fact that we neither won nor lost a game at the just ended AFCON means that we have a weak striking force and strong defence!!!!!!

  9. Iwe twaishiba ati Sakuwaha,Muyaka & Musole Sakulanda there are from north western,why do you want to bring tribalism in football,I think (Nostradamus) is Tonga!!!!!!!!!!!
