Debutant Chilufya relishing Cameroon test

SportsDebutant Chilufya relishing Cameroon test

Midfielder Edward Chilufya says that greater things can only come for Chipolopolo if they slay the Indomitable Lions Cameroon in Saturday’s formality 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifier.

The junior international star is set for his senior debut this weekend after missing the last three Chipolopolo games due to a visa hitch prior to turning 18-years-old in late October.

“We are taking this game seriously because we believe with a good result this weekend good things are coming our way despite being out of the qualifiers,”Chilfuya said.

Chilufya is set to be the latest 2017 U20 AFCON winning stars to be rolled-out by Wedson Nyirenda into the senior team joining Enoch Mwepu and Fashion Sakala over the last two months.

Patson Daka and Emmanuel Banda on the other hand have showed they have made greater strides following the duos recall thanks to their Under-20 exploits over the last twelve months.

Meanwhile, the match will be Zambia’s last scheduled engagement in 2017 and are desperate to end it on a high especially after losing 1-0 away to Nigeria in their penultimate Group B qualifier on October that ended their road to Moscow hopes.

Furthermore, Zambia have jumped 19 places on the FIFA Rankings since their September 3-1 home and 1-0 away wins over Algeria to sit at number 77 heading into this weekend’s date with the African champions.

A favourable result against Cameroon will see Zambia maintain its climb and cement an honourable runners-up finish in Group B.

  1. Nigeria is the best team in Africa. Their back to back wins of Junior world cup has really assisted. With good luck, they will do well in World cup. With their reserved team, they outplayed Algeria in every department of the game if not controversial penalty awarded late to Algeria. FIFA should ignore Africa referees in big tournaments like world cup.

    • This blog is for Zambians. We discuss in-house matters here. What are you doing on this blog? You better find something for yourself to do in Uyo. We will never follow you

  2. Actually as me,can’t believe that we lost to Nigeria, it was unfair referee favored the so called Nigeria we scored a clear gooooooal which we were not given it.any way thumb up guys go boys go, silizani bifukushi pali ba Cameron today wire them 3; 1 in favor of us ,we are behind you bola na Less batata.

  3. Zambia is a bad loser.. If Zambia scores one goal in Nigeria, Nigeria will score 5goals in return. Zambia can never match Eagles in soccer.

  4. @ M.D, Nigeria bribed the referee and your win against Zambia was by luck. I don’t see Nigeria going further in tournament in Russia. You are going to kicked out in the first round.

    • We must have also bribed the referee to beat you at Ndola? I wonder why you Zambians are just boastful. Your coach was busy boasting and talking arrogantly. What happened? He was trounced. In the last 20 years, you have not defeated Nigeria. We also bribed the referee to defeat you at AFCON 1994. I wonder why you keep saying we will not do well at the World Cup. Even if we don’t, Zambian will not be in Russia and it is the Team that defeated Zambia twice that will qualify. Mark today’s match, Zambia will lose to Cameroon.

  5. @ MD you know that with the 419 professional of 80% of Nigerians. you win games by bribing Referees. so sit down and eat egusi.

  6. Who has asked the Nigerians to comment on this? You were lucky some official favoured you in Uyo. Otherwise you could have been sweating profusely this time with yesterday’s results against the desert foxes.

  7. I’m beginning to hate Zambia. Their reasonings is too low. Nigeria was in Ndola and beat you flatly in presence of your officials, family members etc. They walloped defending Champions and you were claiming legitimate goal. What is legitimate goal when lines referee had raised the flag and no defender was running after your striker again. It was only your striker that’s running like a player without sight. He was lucky not to have booked. Zambia can never beat Cameroon. 3rd is your position in the table. You are a bad loser. Watch out for Super Eagles on Tuesday against Argentina in Russian friendly. Bad loser..

  8. Lets face facts here: Nigeria is superior to Chipolopolo according to historical performance. Chipolopolo always allows itself to be beaten at home ground. Now if you are given a vicious hiding at home with your wife, children and neighbours watching, what hope have you defeating your opponent in the rematch at their territory? Furthermore Chipolopolo puts itself under unnecessary pressure by, to qualify, they have to play MUST WIN five or six consecutive games. This is enough to make even a virile guy impotent.

  9. Hope you all watched Algeria vs Nigeria? Check cafonline to check CAF comment about the penalty awarded by Gabonese Referee. Still we accepted it as a part of the game. In the last 20years.. Zambia has not beaten Nigeria. You are just too arrogant. Your loquacious coach makes your case worse.

  10. @M.D, please spare us with your useless comments. We know that by nature Nigerians are thieves and swindlers. You bribed the referee and that is enough.

  11. We bribed Referee in presence of your families in Ndola. Bad losers. You will never qualify for Afcon. Trust Nigeria when it comes to football. U17 world cup-4 times winners. U-20 World Cup- 2times finalist. Olympics Soccer- Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist. Afcon winners-3 times and finalists-Several times. Women Soccer- 11times winners. All Zambians should stand up for Champions. The pride of Africa. Where is Zambia in the world of football? Bad losers. You will lose this afternoon.

  12. Are you watching match? Cameroon will beat Zambia. Useless bad losers. You can never smell world cup with this your boastful coach.

  13. Go to world cup. I told you that you won’t beat Cameroon. Algeria team is sick. That’s why beating them deceived you that you had arrived. You can’t go anywhere in football with this your loquacious coach. He is too boastful.
