  1. Namibia??? Zambia will loose. Namibia just got a good republican president, but Zambia still waiting for Sata. 1 year no president.
    Namibia has a young interesting coach., while Zambia don’t have a coach.

  2. Employ George “Chicken” Lwandamina and Fighton Simukonda as coaches. Spare Janza and let him coach Nkana.
