    • Yes Patson deserves, and boy is cool, wonderful soul.
      Fashion Sakala is good, but somehow to self confident, a Balatoli type. but boy speak good in English.
      Best talent should be young Prosper Chiluya, boy got sweet passes. Good he made it on tournament team.

  2. I do not like this under20 CAF team because how come there was no single Bantu Botatwe player? Andrew Kamanga, Ponga Liwewe and Beston Chambeshi are tribalists Bembas.

  3. Well done ba U20 for good and nice football played. How ever Check your passes. Now listen tell those Senegalese not to use witchcraft. It has disgraced them and it is even a disgrace be in stone age of thinking that your ancestors will rise and help you to win football by using witchcraft when their is God In Heaven and Jesus Christ as our bridge. I do not know how their Ambassador is feeling now. May be they went to a wrong witch doctor who cheated them. You shall never win football with witchcraft or magic. I challenge you to believe in God Maker of Heavens and Earth then you will win future football games.
