Sven plots for Guinea Bissau


Chipolopolo coach Sven Vandenbroeck says he has very little data on Guinea Bissau but is working on a plan to collect the teams’ first three points in the 2019 AFCON Group K qualifiers.

Zambia will host joint Group K leaders Guinea Bissau at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka on October 10 before travelling to Bissau three days later for the final leg of their double-header .

“I have no info on Guniea Bissau, the only thing I know is that almost all their players play in Portugal, which is a good league especially that it is a tactical league. So I expect a tactical difficult game,” Vandenbroeck said.

Chipolopolo are bottom of Group K tied on 1 point with Namibia following a 1-1 with the latter on September 8 in Windhoek.

Guinea Bissau and Mozambique are joint leaders on 4points heading into match-day-three of the 2019 AFCON qualifiers.

Guinea Bissau and Zambia also meet for the second time in an AFCON qualifier after Chipolopolo drew 0-0 at home and lost 3-2 away en route to failing to qualify for the 2017 tournament .

“A coach is always under pressure to deliver in every game but I don’t feel the pressure but I know the team and I are under pressure. How are we going to approach the game? I have some ideas on my mind,” Vandenbroeck said.


  1. Play like this:
    1. Mweene
    2. Salulani
    3. Samunjopa
    4. Kabaso
    5. Sunzu
    6. Nathan
    7. Lubambo
    8. Mwepu
    9. Patson
    10. Kalaba
    11. Augustin
    And you take away your under pressure.

  2. Remove Patson put Kelvin Mubanga Kampamba, if at all he has been called up. That boy’s trickery will keep any defender on his toes. Patson u bring when players are tired.

  3. Gbissau coach saying he has little infor. on Guinea bissau , how was he recruited then, i think Zambia shud not mind his comments just eyes on the BALL BANE
