How can the coach drop “Youremember Banda” IS HE SERIOUS THAT HE WON’T REMEMBER?
What is happening to Patson Daka and Kapumbu please!! Question mark (?) kunuma. But we are still behind you
We await another embarrassment
Coach plz padon kalaba for sake of the game,he is also human he can make mistakes remember you were once a player you did also made mistakes but you were forgiven think twice
Sorry dear, Kapumbu and his team are out for this Saturday`s game with Ivory coast
The selection looks good but where are Patson and hard working Kapumbu? Geofrey (5), I think we should get used to playing without Kalaba. He is a good player but doesnt add much value at the national team. When it matters most he doesnt come to the party but I’m not suggesting he is not good. By the way, I would prefer Chris Katongo on the bench to pastor Chintu.
Why not kabaso Choongo? He’s solid for mazembe at the back
WHY HAVE WE BEEN LEAVING BEHIND, THIS SOCCER GENIUS IN THE NAME OF FWAYO TEMBO. HE HAS SOPHISTICATED TECHNIQUES, SPEED AND ACCURACY. IF WE ARE TO WIN, LET US INCLUDE SUCH KIND OF PLAYERS RATHER THAN DRAMATIST THAT WE HAVE INCLUDED SO MUCH THAT WE SHARE THE FUNDS AFTER THE TOURNAMENT IS OVER EVEN AFTER LOSING.
Ba Wanda. Kabaso Chongo is a good player and the boy is Doing it for TP Mazembe. He deserves a place in the national team. Looking at your defenders. Kabaso is better than your boys. Please Coach Consider Choongo for Zambia. You are a good coach but by leaving Kabaso Choongo you have missed it.
my advice is this mr nyilenda:get daka,mwepu,emanuel banda and fashon sakala in the team so the game be good and suit for us to watch while relaxed for we tired for embarrassment. thanks for taking up my request.
also include the experienced goll keepers like keendy mwene and mangani banda please.
Bane what abt lubambo musonda?
FOR SURE WE HAVE THE TEAM BUT THE SELECTION CRITERIA AT TIMES LEAVES MUCH TO BE DESIRED, WHEN WE NOW THINK WE HAVE A TEAM THATS WHEN OTHERS ARE DROPED . WE WERE EMBARANSED IN MOROCO NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING ELSE BUT SELECTION . DAKA MISSED THE NIGERIA GAME WE UNDERSTOOD THE INJURY HE HAD. BUT Y NOW. KALABA IS STILL GOOD AND WE STILL NEED HIS EXPERIENCE IN THE TEAM. FWAYO, CHAMA CLETUS SATE SATE MISSED THE CHAN FOR UNKNOWN REASONS. LET THE COACH LEARN TO FORM AND SUSTAIN A TEAM AND NOT PROBABLY USE EMOTIONS WHEN SELECTING.
Material is there manje selection criteria
We Won ba Zambia well done
