  1. WHY TRAIN IN SPAIN WHAT HAS BECOME SO ATTRACTIVE IN SPAIN FOR FAZ TO BE SPENDING SO MUCH MONEY BETTER IN CHINA CLOSE TO KOREA

    • Well thought of. China or Thailand.
      Anyway, sometimes we shouldn’t think of FAZ spending, there might be a sponsor host behind the scene.

    • That’s all nice, but we shouldn’t forget to honour our First Republican President with a 10m high statue. Thanks.

    • I mean Dr. Kenneth David Kaunda bane.
      South Africa has statues of Nelson Mandela, Ghana has Kwame Nkhruma’s, Namibia has Sam Nunyoma’s and I believe there are Nyerere statues in Tanzania too. Let’s respect history PaZed

  2. Better yet, soccer is more advanced in Spain. The team could benefit from local clubs and facilities.

    • This Kalusha you talked of was campaigning the nationa in SA even when the match was to be played in west/north africa. Stop hero worshiping.
