  1. All the players choosen were not on merit…It is either they are connected to the coaches or FAZ officials….I cant see any player from Konkola Blades,Real Nakonde, Welding/Zesco Vic falls….I can see players that had connections with Manager Jere , Kawanu a FAZ member …..Total rubish with alot of cheats as the like of Fashion are older than Chrles Zulu, Muwowo ,Godfrey Ngwenya or Saith

    • Comment:its a total mess boi and a recipe for being disqualified ,its either they have connections with faz or the coaches have interest in them ,tell me is patson daka below 20,Rubbish

    • Comment:sakulanda was born in Zambia do not worry about his father’s citizenship. Charles musonda children are zambian by origin but are Belgian . sport has nothing to do with citizenship look at Congolese who are French do they look at that.

  2. Comment:real nakonde is almost in the premier league and no player is making the national teams that’s real talent and no mean archievment to come this far

  3. Comment: Truth is favouritism is very visible here but I’d loosely put it that every coach has his players in mind. Those who he thinks will help him attain victory. One zambia one nation. Go Zambia Zambia go!

  4. Comment: very much true. The same applies to Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy with players like Edward Chimfwembe who were called last time have they finished already? How about Allan Kamwanga Junior, is he not under 20, I also feel that we need to even select from teams lower than Division one as some of them are good but reach premier League level when they are older and consequently end up reducing their ages to be selected. Go to teams like Chongwe United with quality players but school boys at the same time. players like Austin Chitambala. Remember how we did a deservice to Kalengo who only became exposed above 30 years. Do u think Zambia was going to benefit more from him then than now? Food for thought!

  5. We should honour the Makwazas! From Dickson to son Linos to third generation linos Jr! Fantastic. I hope this new guy becomes an international. The Nkole family too. These guys at one time had four brothers in the national team. We should be calling stadia Nkole brostadium not levy mwanawasa. Let’s rename it to Makwaza stadium
