Zambian National team Coach Wedson Nyirenda shouting instructions to his charges
Wedson Nyirenda finally has a win in his three-game-old reign after beating hosts Uganda in a friendly on Tuesday.

Zambia defeated The Cranes 1-0 away in Kampala to end Nyirenda’s poor start as Zambia coach.

Chisamba Lungu scored the game’s only goal in the 24 minute to net his first official international goal.

The midfielder from Russian club FC Ural’s first Zambia goal came in November, 2011 in India where Chipolopolo beat a Goa Select side 4-1.

Meanwhile, the victory came on the back of a 1-0 friendly defeat to another 2017 Africa Cup finalists Zimbabwe last Saturday in Harare.

Nyirenda began his tenure on October 9 with a 2-1 home defeat at the hands of Nigeria in an opening 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier in Ndola.

After the two friendlies, Zambia now head to Cameroon ahead of Saturday’s second Group B qualifier there against the hosts in Limbe.

  1. Ala kamanga seems to have a very strange. Spirit that has made everything good about soccer to vanish overnight. I can imagine what kind of jubilation he had put up just after the final whistle

  5. Everyone has a village if you do not have one then you are a foreigner. What I know is that most people in town are migrants the owners of Lusaka are the soli people and the lenge or lenje people. All of us are settlers in that place. If you know you are a Bemba, Nsenga, Chewa, Tonga, Luvale, Lunda, Lala, Bisa, Lungu, Aushi, Swaka, Tumbuka, Chikunda, Kikaonde, Ila, Kachokwe, Lozi, Toka, Leya, We, Kunda and the list goes on, you do not belong to Lusaka and most of these places where the languages mentioned are, they are still villagish and that is why you do not want to identify with these places and claim you are townish. Never or you ran away from the ugly face of your village and you do not mention where you come from. Be proud if you have a village that is your source. Be like Kenyans…
