Sports Lwandamina kicks-off CHAN preps

George Lwandamina kicked off his second Zambia beat on Tuesday as the countdown starts for this Saturday’s 2016 CHAN qualifier against Namibia.

“We will cast the net wide after we have settled and bring in as many more deserving players as possible.”

Players at Tuesday morning training were goalkeeper Daniel Munyao and his Red Arrows clubmate and midfielder Paul Katema plus the Buffaloes duo of Jack Chirwa and Allan Mukuka.

Others include the Zesco United’s quartet of goalkeeper Jacob Banda, midfielders Justin Zulu and Kondwani Mtonga including striker Jackson Mwanza.

Namibia will host Zambia in the first leg on June 20 while the final leg will be played on July 4.

Winner will face Mozambique or Seychelles in the final round decider in October for a place at next years tournament in Rwanda.

Victor of the Zambia/Namibia game will be at home in the final round, first leg qualifier on October 17 while the final leg will be played a week later.

Pls Lwandamina wr are tired of “Iam building a team”.whst we want are goald and wins.Lika Mourinho saidlst week wht is important is to score goals and win not “we play smart fine footbal”no..we hv so many good players around both local and abroad..Bola mu zambia tima mvela mushe na chimwela whn we win.once we lose its so painful tht evrything u do becomes bitter.A win by th national soccer team is a uniting factor.Coaches u mst know tht Zambians balafwa na ma loss ya bola na ma BP shooting up..Pls prove yoself.some players are aging bt are still vry good.want we want ma wins..other countries stl hv their vry exoerienced players as long as they gv us goals to go ku ma tournaments.young players yes bt they need th experienced ones on their side.
