    • This is ridiculous why report about sport, when the world is talking about Zimmerman verdict controversy

      Pathetic

      Thanks

    • With due respects on a Sunday, Mr. Lukanga fumyapo picture, you be anointed with comments and you regret not be Zambian.
      Some of these women we marry from Latina America simply have nonsesical comments on Zambians who like posing for pictures.

  1. I wasn’t very impressed watching the game on tv. Too many errors by our players. We shud have won by a bigger margin. The defender gave that striker sppace to take an overhead kick. We. Shouldn’t be allowing teams to score in the last minutes. Suppose that was the ghana game? We would be out of Brazil. Let’s congratulate our players but also point out their mistakes. we will definitely struggle against technically superior bafana.

    • @Simply, If you were close-by, nga nakupona. The game was best, if you are used to miss the holes, then stop trying getting there. We enjoyed the match.. finito.

  2. Mozambique did not give us a good run in that game to write home about. Personally I didn’t see good football from our boys. The 3 – 1 win was just luck on our part, the first goal was a penalty, second goal as well wasn’t a calculated one as Jimmy Chisenga never meant to score but made that cross for strikers which coincidentally found itself behind the net. The only goal we can be proud of is the third which was well calculated. If anything that was a 1 – 1 game let wait for Wednesday as I believe Bafana Bafana will give u good game of which after winning we’ll be proud of our young Chipolopolo. Viva Zambia.

  3. The game is Ghana vs Zambia world cup qualifier and if only they can beat Ghana then moral will be restored in us fans.

  4. We have no sharp strikers even with this local team, we needed Winstone Kalengo and Sate Sate upfront, young Moses Phiri looked sharp but lacked maturity, the Nkana striker is not a National team material while Bornwell Mwape lacks technical sharpness. We face a real test to a much superior team on wednesday and I still maintain Renard should GO and GO for good… average cosafa coach!!!

  5. #4, simple u are right, over kick sure, wateyakofye umutwe then the man in charge of the match would blow for a fowl.
