  1. That is their level that’s where PE teacher HR can be record a win…shame it won’t reflect on the FIFA Ranking table. And FAZ should take note – that you don’t announce closed match results….that’s the reason why they are called that what if Kalewa thrashed Zambia would they have told us.

    • @Jay Jay, ine nkakuma, Renard is best coach, he just have to stop “..almost slapping” attitude. In general is the best.

    • @ Jay Jay-You need to know the difference between a Practice game & a Friendly game. And FIFA rankings shouldn’t worry you so much, however your worry should be whether CHIPOLOPOLO will qualify to CHAN 2014 or not? And the answer is YES Chipolopolo will Qualify after beating the Warriors on Saturday.

    • @Osadabwa iwe You seem not to know what sarcasm is….as for beating the warriors how long are you going to carry on drawing away with minnows then hoping for a home win? And you expect to carry on with this strategy at a final its no surprise you drew all matches at AFCON 2013.
      WAKE UP from your DOCILITY!!

    • @Jay Jay: How does a PE teacher win the AFCON? How does a PE teacher win the Cosafa Cup? Just plain ignorance on your part. Win or lose, Zambian soccer is on the rise again.

    • @Ba Concerned Citizen
      Let’s get this straight we won AFCON because we were underdogs and the opposition didn’t take us seriously…they lost it. Motivating those young men was also easy given the tragic historical connection of the place (Gabon)….in a nutshell it was a fluke. If he is so good as you credulously claim how come he LAMENTABLY FAILED to prep the boys for AFCON 2013 final when the opposition took us seriously. He LAMENTABLY FAILED to beat Ethiopia who had a man sent off at the group stages of AFCON 2013 with 45 mins to spare. As for Cosafa Cup how many of those 13 countries can you count as worthy opponents for us only RSA.
      Its only in Zambia that we tolerate such mediocrity any where else this AVERAGE PE TEACHER would have been sent PACKING.

      PLEASE WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!

    • Yaba koma people can invent reasons when wanting to satisfy egos!!!
      Imwe ba Jay Jay mapuli yenu since when did a tag win a team a cup? If that was the case we would OFTEN be seeing an underdog host country like South Africa (which wasnt taken seriously in 2010) winning the world cup. Or S Korea and Japan playing each other at the 2002 world cup since noone took them seriously. Even Ghana and Togo should have won the World cup when they went there if this theory can carry a modicum of respect. If you have run out of far fetched reasons for denying Zambia and Renard their Hard worked for and deserved victory just talk to those Nollywood producers to make D class movies that entertain your trashy logic or better still just shut up.

      Just how ignorant are you? In the history of the AFCON, only three nations have repeated as champions (Egypt, Cameroon & Ghana).

    • Ba Kickarse Banda
      Its better if you watched the AFCON 2012 videos again and its one thing no retaining the cup in 2013 but its another thing to play appallingly through out the tournament and draw your way out and not put up a defence. I am a supporter of Zambia but also a realist and i’m not going to tiptoe around gullible Zambian fans’ sensibilities in such a craven way. So if you are faint hearted and debate with your heart please excuse yourself from such issues.

    • This really takes the cake! Ati we won because we were underdogs! I have never heard of such a concoction. We ve been underdogs so many times before but we’ve not won. An underdog can surprise one team not 6. Please jay Jay think of another fib

    • Ba Concerned Citizen – you have just proved to everyone that it can be done a team can retain the AFCON Cup like Egypt which Zambia failed due to their whole set up post tournament.
      Don’t expect to win in Kamusai as the statics speak for themselves..we are not just worthy and good enough to go to Brazil…thats the cold hard truth.

      WAKE UP PEOPLE!!

    • @MR BEAN – since our AFCON 2012 win… all the teams now take their opponents seriously…there are no underdogs or small teams everyone has belief as evident by the last final.

  2. This isn’t a game. It’s practice. You dont report on it unless you have nothing to do. Do we ever hear that Mike Tyson has lost or won a sparring bout? Journalism yamasiku ano!

  3. guys dont shoot the messenger, this is their only chance to record a win for Zambia, once again, please dont shoot the messenger

    • If the messenger is bringing us news that isn’t news we shoot him. You should know what message to take tto your destination

  4. When Zambia is training with local teams in their practice matches why don’t they play against say a team on top of the local Premier league? I am just asking.

    • I imagine its partly to do with cost. The premium team ideally should not play for free or peanuts which is what a lower ranking team will do

  5. Mu Zambia awe, when ZNBC buys cameras its on the main news. Even broadcasting a match live involving Zambia national team makes headlines on ZNBC news. Ine Nsoni mwe!

  6. Why do we always play our games on Saturdays here in Zambia?? Kalu and FAZ should interchange days, other games should be played on Fridays and Sundays!!

  7. Zambia indeed…how can you pick a week team to gauge your potential? You are even proud to announce the expected result…such nonsense!!!
