  1. “The Zambian people expect us to do well….”

    Teach them how to have the killer instinct to score goals and to play for themselves as sports ladies and not to please the Zambian masses. The masses will be pleased as a consequence of these young people outshining their opponents. Don’t heap unnecessary pressure on the girls. They have to be relaxed and calm to perform well. If they have on their minds “Zambians must be happy”, don’t you think they will be in panic mode and perform poorly?

  2. What is the stupidity we have in Zambia of calling people like Noria “Mbesuma” Sosala ?You take someone’s identity and give her the identity of Mbesuma?what nonsense is this ?Are you ever going to hear on the international scene like Aaron ” Ronaldo” Ramsey?
    Lets get civilized and give confidence to our young footballers to have their own identity.No wonder Zambia has no player right now plying their trade in the best leagues around the world.atase!
