Litana believes Zambia can slay Lions


Ex-Zambia defender Elijah Litana says Chipolopolo can beat Cameroon in Saturday’s crucial 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier away in Limbe.

Zambia face Cameroon in search of their first points in Group B in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers following their 2-1 home loss to Nigeria on October 9 in Ndola.

Elusive Litana, a 1994, 1996 and 1998 Africa Cup star, believes home ground advantage won’t be a factor when Cameroon hosts Zambia.

“Yes we can beat Cameroon anything is possible. We can win if we put our heads together as players, coaches and management,” Litana said.

“This time there is nothing like home or away match. Nigeria came here and beat us so we can go and beat Cameroon,” the ex-Power Dynamos defender said.

Litana admits Zambian players must be at their best to overcome the Indomitable Lions in Limbe.

“Let’s put in more efforts. All of us must for instance say we are going to put in 120 percent instead of maybe 90 percent.

We also need to support the team and let the team work hard,” he said.

Cameroon are second on one point after a 1-1 away draw with Algeria on day one of the final qualifying campaign.


  1. Comment: you must be aware that we have Litana and Tana now u are mentioning both, don’t u counter check before posting?

  2. This Chipolopolo is a big liability, We have been hopeful all the time but you fools don’t deliver. Every time you have to apologize, this time I apologize for you in advance as you loose to the Lions.

  3. Very true football pundit. These reporters don’t seem to know their subject well enough to report on it. It immediately struck me reading the story are they talking about Tana or Litana?

  4. Elijah is alive and kicking. I last met him at Kafulafuta (along kitwe/ndola dual carriage way) area where he resides (farming) and coaches a youthful team within the vicinity.
