Zambia draw saddens Lwandamina


Chipolopolo coach George “Chicken” Lwandamina is not happy with Zambia’s modest start to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.

Zambia were on Saturday held to a frustrating goalless draw by minows Guinea Bissau in the two teams opening Group E match played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Lwandamina described Zambia’s start to the qualifying campaign as sad.

“Definitely it is a sad beginnig but the boys did all what they could but unfortunately we couldn’t just get a goal,” Lwandamina said.

Zambia missed several scoring opportunities including a stoppage time penalty missed by number one keeper Kennedy Mweene.

“I am sure there are lessons to be learnt and we hope and trust that we will be able to change things,” he added.

Zambia face Kenya in their second Group E match on September 6 in Nairobi.

Meanwhile, Lwandamina switches focus to the 2016 CHAN qualifiers this Saturday when the team travels to Windhoek to face Namibia in a first round, first leg qualifier.

The team goes into camp in Lusaka on Monday.


    • What an and a nuisance you have become on this site – you are a Pig really with your Stupid Loans!

    • If you are really serious you can utilize the space on the right for advertising than trolling to market your loan shark company….this is the selfsame reason most companies do not grow and wallow in compounds. Who applies for loans via emails?

  1. If you really want anyone to take you seriously with your loans, if at all there are available, please publish the name of your organisation, and address, etc, otherwise, you are just a conman, wasting space on this site – get lost!

  2. Zambian coaches also need to taught public & media relations at these seminars they have at Football House…how can you be sad when you are the one who hand-picked the team? I hope you have total control of that and are not being dictated by the corrupt Galu as its you who will be blamed not him as he will merely fire you via text from RSA.

    • Not factual . Lwandamina hasnt selected a single player for the national team because he literally had no space or time to do so. All the players in camp were called by the now former coach Honour Janza

  3. George must not play long balls. George must find players that can hold the ball and not what we saw where people were just kicking the ball to strikers. Find a central defender who can pass the ball. Let George use chipolopolo tactics we know and the weeding of players must start now.

  4. Strikers must score goals, this needs to be enshrined the constitution for us to move forward. Even the Afcon win was through penalties. Remember coach Burkhad Ziese saying it was not him to score goals after coaching a blunt Zambia. In one game, a commentator said even my wife could have scored that one after seeing a horrible Zambia miss
