  1. Just as well SINCE CHIPOLOPOLO failed To beat SUPER EAGLES then who are U to go the world cup and yet u are not virgins at 17? Just bring your twenukani home for hammering

  2. how can they win when they travel on the game day. I know coz I was on the same flight with the team. obviously tired and playing under flood lights on astro-turf….

  3. Kagwanayo-Botswana is about 2hours 20 minutes from Lusaka direct. Now that their is no direct flight it means they went to S.A. first making the journey go up to a minimum of 5 hrs. Mwila gesa nga tamwayendapo cheating people with fake information

  4. Zambian coaches still remain with one problem -failure to read the game. It’s sad they were booted out. 3 zero advantage, you don’t need to play -pack the bus works please Zambian coaches. The same happened in the cosafa. Zambia needs an expatriate coach!
