  1. Waste of money!!the PF Govnt should just focus on the U-20 young Chipolopolo team.that is the only hope for Zambian football during the next 10 years.
    Wedson Nyirenda has been the worst national team coach.FAZ must give that job to coach Beston Chambeshi who is able to deliver outstanding results with the U-20!!!
    I really dont like the current chipolopolo team as its simply useless!!

  2. Don’t change that team, looks good.
    Probably only goalkeeper, use Zanaco’ s Toaster Nsabata he has matured, great charisma too.

  3. U20 should be given time to mature. Let’s not think of graduating babies. That’s the problem with zed we graduate babies and they fail to perform at senior. Don’t forget that Daka and Luchanga have played for the senior and they failed to perform. Chambeshi should move with them to u23 for continuity purposes

  4. As for Coach Nyirenda,his problem is calling players to team who have past the future of Zambian football like Lwipa and Jonas Sakuwaha. It’s not a laughing matter. At senior national team, Wada should not be building the team. We supporters want instant results

  5. Zambians please don’t allow a Zambian coach to lead any soccer national team. look what has happened in Korea U-20 world cup. chambeshi failed to lead the game, fail to defend Italy where 10 man down. what a shame bane. please employ a white man to be national coach.

    • You have too much respect for whites.

      The boys should not have been accommodated at the same hotel with their rivaly. What happened off the field has an impact on the players. They were targeted before the match was played
