The Zambian National team has arrived in Algeria ahead of the Russia 2018 FIFA World Cup second leg encounter against Algeria.

The team arrived at Houri Boumedian Airport in Constantine at 10:20 Hours Zambian time.

Zambia beat Algeria by 3:1 in the first leg played in Lusaka on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Zambia Sports Fans Association ( ZASOFA ) have expressed happiness over the Chipolopolo’s win against Algeria.

ZANIS sports reports that the Association Patron Peter Makembo says fans in the country salute the senior national football team for their 3-1 win over Algeria in a group B 2018 Russia World Cup qualifier.

“As fans we are very happy that Chipolopolo managed to beat Algeria Yesterday and we salute the technical bench for proper coordination with the team,” said Makembo.

He however cautioned the Chipolopolo not to relax as the race still continues for the 2018 world Cup.

“ They are only picking one team in Group B so Zambia should continue fighting, be positive and believe that we will qualify for the World Cup,” he said.

The ZASOFA said Chipolopolo should only add a few players on the bench but the team should be maintained in order to continue winning.

He said the fans are making arrangements to be part of Tuesday’s game In Algeria to go and support the team.

During yesterday’s qualifier at Heroes Staduim, Zambia beat Algeria 3-1 at the 2018 FIFA World Cup World cup qualifier at Heroes stadium in Lusaka.

    • Dear Kennedy Mweene
      Whilst the all country have seen your great effort contribution including sacrifice in being a sportsman at heart. You’ve been long enough to have seen it all, the safe path that helped you succeed and the untried path that will help you seal the deal. And that’s how most will remember you. Being the captain and amount of time you’ve been makes you a person everyone is looking up. All we need is more concentration from because you got experience. Don’t easy goals in the net. You got to fly like an EAGLE and achieve your day like an hungry cheater.

      Thanks for getting the message.

  1. Zambia always want to start slow and wake up only after being put in a corner! This must stop! We knew all along we had a world class team in Under 20 with the much needed fighting spirit but as always waited until “late” to summon the players! We are a joke in administration at times! We always love to play permutations to see how if Nigeria loses or that team wins then we qualify! Nonsense!

  2. Well done boys! But please can the Inspector General of Police do something about the traffic congestion before and after an international football match at heroes stadium. When the President is flying out of the Country police men and women are lined up throughout the route from state house to the airport. Just why can’t the same happen when there’s an important soccer match? We left the stadium at 17:00hrs and only managed to get out of the traffic jam at 19:30hrs!!All roads leading to the stadium should be lined up with police controlling traffic because there’s too much traffic and too many people. Or when we are going for work in the morning the police officers control traffic very well at strategic points but why do they always fail when there’s an international football match?

  3. Zambia should start preparing for World Cup 2022. Nigeria cannot afford to lose this opportunity. Cameroon can never beat Nigeria. The best result Cameroon can get against Nigeria in Yaoundé is draw and besides I don’t see Zambia winning in Constantine, Algeria. Zambia should forget it this time around.

    Cameroun 1-1 Nigeria Monday Final

    African champions Cameroon cannot qualify for the 2018 World Cup finals in Russia after a 1-1 draw with Nigeria in Yaounde on Monday.
    The result means Cameroon have just three points from four matches and can no longer finish top of Group B.
    Nigeria took the lead after 30 minutes through Moses Simon after the ball broke to him in the area.
    Cameroon equalised in the 75th minute as substitute Vincent Aboubakar scored from the penalty spot.
    The other fourth round match in this group sees Algeria host Zambia in Constantine on Tuesday.
    A win for Zambia will take them to seven points just three behind Nigeria with two games to play while Algeria must win to keep alive any slim hopes they still have of going to Russia.

  5. (M.D) panyo nga panse! Who told you that Zambia can’t beat Algeria Home & away? Next is you 2-0 at your home soil. Panyo nga panse
