One Zambian in 2016 CHAN All-Stars team

Sports One Zambian in 2016 CHAN All-Stars team

Only one Zambian player has made the 2016 CAF African Nations Championship (CHAN) All-Stars team.

There was no place for goalkeeper Jacob Banda who kept a cleansheet in four matches in open play at the tournament before Zambia exited the CHAN at the quarterfinal stage 5-4 on post-match penalties after their extra-time last eight tie against Guinea finished 0-0.

Also not on the list was his Zesco club mate and midfielder Cletus Chama whose two assists helped Zambia to the knockout stage with a match to spare.

However, that honour went to Zambia captain and striker Christopher Katongo who has been picked as one of the substitutes in the CHAN All-Stars .

Katongo scored one goal at the tournament following his recall in December to the Chipolopolo fold for the first time since October, 2014.
Best XI

Goalkeeper: Ley Matampi (DR Congo)

Defenders:Abdoul Karim Dante (Mali), Joel Kimwaki (DR Congo), Cheick Ibrahim Comara (Ivory Coast), Mohamed Youla (Guinea)

Midfielders: Ibrahima Sory Sankhon (Guinea), Meshack Elia (DR Congo), Serge N’Guessan (Ivory Coast), Hamidou Sinayoko (Mali)

Forwards: Jonathan Bolingi (DR Congo), Sekou Koita (Mali)

Substitutes:Badra Ali Sangare (Ivory Coast), Djigui Diarra (Mali), Lomalisa Mutambala (DR Congo), Heritier Luvumbu (DR Congo), Daouda Camara (Guinea), Aka Essis (Ivory Coast), Ernest Sugira (Rwanda), Ahmed Akaichi (Tunisia), Elvis Chisom Chikatara (Nigeria), Christopher Katongo (Zambia)


  1. I cannot take this All Stars team seriously. To me, it appears the people behind the selections were either asleep for most of the time during the games or were doing selections under the influence of alcohol. It doesn’t make sense. Its simply rubbish.

  2. History has proven with African football favoritism supports francophone countries. Majority of the CAF officials are french speaking as to anglophone/ South African countries always get the short end of the stick.

  3. George isn’t a good coach. He failed to identify a striker that could have started all matches with instinct for the goals. But kept on trying strikers in a real tournament.

  4. U guys are jokers 2 goals in 4 games and u want to part your backs. Foolish wait world qualifys are just on the corner .
