    • BOB MARLEY: … And until the philosophy that holds Sinkala and Sunzu superior to locally based players such as Chaila; there will always be LOSSES- Losses at HOME, Losses in AWAY games – EVERYWHERE it shall be LOSSES for Chipolopolo. Until we continue being in denial about the truth that Kalengo has become useless ever since he went to AC Leopards, and that Mweene is rusting warming the bench at Sundowns; There will always be LOSSES!

  2. The president was just watching like any one else,there was nothing wrong with that,look at zambian team,a lot of prayers there legs are tied very few are doing fine,that team is going no where .As at now there is no other players to replace those tied legs,the best way is to stop playing soccer at national level for 5 years so that they can make a strong team that can do better.Using a player like Adrian chama is the matter of wasting time
    that guy is useless he does not think.The current faz president also useless.

  3. Let’s not lose hope Zambia. We need to rally our troops and keep on fighting. I know some people think it’s all over for Zambia. But never say die. Yes we lost but much depends on what we are going to do after the lose. Pick our our pieces and mobilize. We need to encourage the boys even more together with the coaches. In yesterday’s much the defense costed us on two occasions gifting Nigeria with a win. If it means bringing back the likes of Isaic Chansa, the Kotongo brothers, Lubambo Musonda, Jacob Mulenga e.t.c lets do just that. We may spring a surprise as there are still five more matches to go. This is no time for assigning blame but support for the players and Coaches. That team is a good team by any standards. All we need is polish up in a few areas especially the…

  4. In all considerations that is the same team George Lwandamina was using except for a few changes which is expected when a new coach takes over. I was very impressed with Fwayo Tembo and was not happy when he was substituted. Kennedy Mweene put up a splendid performance. We need good attacking midfielders to supply the balls to Mbesuma. The Nigerian goal keeper was quite good and denied us on several occasions. In the next game let’s have two central defenders. The two fullbacks Fackson Kapumbu and Kabazo Chongo played well. Finally to the coach, you have what it takes and do not loose hope. Pump confidence in those boys that even in Cameroon they can win.

  5. In this competition, a loss at home is a disaster, to say the least. Zambia is clearly the underdog in this group. The next game is in Cameroon and you expect Zambia to win! By the way, I never heard of any friendly games Zambia played before the game with Nigeria. I thought friendlies help in blending and improving cohesiveness in the team. I would recommend a couple of friendlies with reputable teams, preferably with West or North African teams before the subsequent games.

  9. Nyirenda is a good coach, but going to face cameroon, the following players should droped: KALAB, SHINKALA, EDRIAN CHAMA AND JACKSON MWANZA. And he should bring back KATONGO CHRIS, AND POWER DYNAMO GOAL KEEPER CHIBUYE. The coach also should look at the ages of zambian player before 2018. if you look at NIGERIA’S the oldest player was OBI MIKEL, at 29 years, now zambia is playing players with 30years, which is very bad in future. Also FAZ should organize friendly with other countries or COPPER-BELT SELECT OR MID-LANDS. WHEN KAMANGA CAME IN ,HE WAS CONDEMNING KALUSHA FOR FAILING TO HAVE FRIENDLY MATCHES , NOW IS HIS TIME TO PROVE HIM WRONG. ALA UKULANDA KWALYANGUKA.
