­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Republican President Edgar Lungu says he is extremely confident that Zambia is on course towards the formation of a solid senior soccer team due to the decisive and steady progress the Junior Chipolopolo is making in the ongoing Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations (AFCON).

President Lungu says he is more than convinced that the country is on course in building a solid senior team that can bring greater glory to the nation not too long from now.

The President has expressed profound joy at the victory that the Junior Chipolopolo has posted after beating Egypt 3-1 at the match which was played today at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.

“Today, I am glad to send more congratulations to the team for their sweet victory against Egypt this afternoon,” the President said.

The President has acknowledged that the beauty of football is inherent in its unifying character that it imposes on the nation saying that the more the Junior Chipolopolo records victory, the more the nation becomes more united.

The President has reassured the team and the Football Association of Zambia of his personal support and Government’s unwavering commitment in the country’s efforts aimed at raising the standard of football to greater heights.

“Given the decisive and steady progress the Junior Chipolopolo is making in the ongoing Africa Under-20 Cup of Nations, I am more than convinced that we are on course towards forming a solid senior team that can bring us greater glory not too long from now,” the President said.

This is contained in a statement signed by Special Assistant for Press and Public Relations Amos Chanda and obtained by ZANIS this evening.

    • Ba Lungu look around you before using words like “unity”. Kalusha worked had in PF campaigns, kicking balls at rallies. But he is being attacked by Kananga just for nothing but jealous.
      Unite FAZ first…. As training to unite you with Zambians.

    • EVEN WHERE YOU ARE PLAYING (COMPETING) THE MATCHES IS INSPIRING. THIS MEANS THAT WE NEED MORE MODERN STADIA IN RURAL AREAS, TOO. NOT JUST IN LUSAKA AND NDOLA. WHAT ABOUT IN OTHER PROVINCES TOWNS? INFERIORITY COMPLEX CAN PLAY A NEGATIVE EFFECTIVE ON PLAYERS WHO ARE PLAYING TEAMS THAT PLAY IN SUPERIOR STADIA OVERSEAS AND WITHIN AFRICA. MOREOVER, WELL MANAGED STADIA MAKE A LOT OF MONEY.

  2. Don’t allow iris kaingu near our boys, it took our boys the entire first half to realize that they are in a competition, concentration in such competitions is cardinal.

  3. IRIS KAINGU Should not be condemned as if she is not free to interact with fellow zambians and new celebrities for that matter, zambians lets stop to be petty. The boys are mature enough to choose what they want infact 70% of your so called under 20 are married with kids furthermore non of them is a virgin. Lets encourage our boys to be disciplined we need them for future assignments not talking of our counrtymate IRIS KAINGU sure..very boring. Yes Your excellency give support to the team let them aim high after this tournament dine with them at state house fundraise for them to go win world cup in korea.

  5. The boys are good! Very good possibly the best so far as long as they stay focused and don’t succumb to to milenial disease of smart phone chatting, whatsapp and facebook! That disease is killing the youth of today! Let them stay away from those evil vices!

  6. Pleas keep the corrupt kulusha from interfering. He is now broke and wants part of the action while undermining kamanga.

    With prudent manegment at FAZ, zambia is headed for glory. Just keep kulusha out.

  7. What the Illegitimate Lungu has said adds no value to the devt of football. To eradicate violence and hooliganism in the country Lungu should condemn and restrain his PF Cadres who harassed and intimidated LAZ and its President. The unruly and illegal Demo was sanctioned by him that is why he is not condemning his violent and lawless PF Cadres. Illegitimate Lungu should say something on this.

  8. Ba Lungu focus on predicting the economy. Leave football to us experts. You want to ride on Chipolopolo’s success. People want water in Shangombo and electricity in Zambezi Mwase Mushota Nakonde

  9. Trust me, most of these chaps lied about their age. By the time they graduate to the senior team, they will be too old to play, and everyone will blame witchcraft for failure to perform at that level.
