  2. I don’t understand what’s up with Zambian players. It is not advisable to sign a contract just before a major competition like the Afcon, just in case u shine and big clubs with big cash became interested in u. Unfortunately they all keep on falling in the same trap. Sunzu could have waited until after the Afcon. Of course, this could be a gamble, but with a player of his quality, luck would definitely be on his side. Any way, good luck to him and the rest of our boys. Go go boys, we are behind u.

  3. Team good without selfish striker C Katongo. H Himonde should been paired with Sunzu for a solid defence.
    Bwana coach, we are watching. Let the team perform below par u will be skinned alive with no sympathy. Your outing excitement will be shortlived should the team show serious flaws during a friendly game against the host Bafana.
    Work on sharpening the front line. Goals scoring matters a lot than the entertaining system of play usually done by the Chipolopolo boys. Shooting skills and creating shooting space is what Zambian footballers lack most.
    Go for a kill. Chamanga can inspire the team positively. Mayuka and Jacob Mulenga always fail to create space for shooting in the D zone. The pair always exibits serious poor shooting skills. Just shoot out of desperation.

  4. Let Chisamba Lungu and Lubambo Musonda be starters. Ba Janza, u seem not to be sure with yo starting eleven. Each time these boys come in, they change the game positively. With due respect, can u compare Bruce Musakanya with either Chisamba or Lubambo ? The Problem with Zambian coaches is u feature players who bribe u, nichekeleko syndrome won’t take us anywhere. The same applies to Kondwani Mutonga. He is far much a superior player than either Muntali or Damashano, but u keep on sidelining him. What is yo problem Janza? We have been very patient with u so far but don’t push yo luck too far. Learn to put the interest of the the country first, and not yo pocket.
