  1. I watched the ZESCO Nkana game on DSTV-That was fantastic. if you can produce goals like that the national team should be sizzling. The league should be encouraged to have attacking teams. I dont go to a stadium to watch a goalless draw NO NO NO!

  2. I watched the Zesco Nkana game my blem goes to Nkana defence 4 allowing the silly goals, my opinion a defender we cant escoting strikers when they coming into 18 box that is defenceless i remember the old guns defenders like kapambwe muleng, eston mulenga,aggrey chiyangi ,melu , lwandamina, they keep on to say that umwipi pamwipi, umutali pamutali
