  1. I only know Pelembe, who will face:
    1… Samunjopa (goalkeeper)
    2. Nsautu
    3. Lawrence Chungu
    4. Kabaso
    5. Sunzu
    6. Sinkala
    7. Augustine
    8. Mwepu
    9. Brian Mwila
    10. Daka
    11. Kalaba
    Zambia 4-1 Mozambique (own goal Sunzu).

    • Ba Zambia You’re over concentrating on the opponent, just name yours too.
      Don’t forget to include that Green Eagles boy who was super sub at Polokwane COSAFA, Silwimba who “killed” the Algerian strikeforce at the back, and Ziyo Tembo. Please NO SAKALA in defence.

    • STRIKER LESSON 1: A lot of work has been done by your teammates to bring the ball into the scoring range. So don’t send it back to your goalkeeper or defence. Find a way to put it INTO the NET. If you can’t, then you’re NOT a striker.

    • STRIKER LESSON 2: You don’t need MANY chances to score ONE goal. Once chance one goal or two chances two goals are the strikers we need. No favoritism

    • COACH LESSON 1: Get your starting 11 right – 3 changes can’t correct a WRONG TEAM, especially if you have to make a forced change. We’re in DO OR DIE moments. No masobela

  2. Comment: Mozambique and Zambia are tied up on 4 points where as Namibia and Guinea are on 7 points so I don’t agree with this infor provided.

  3. How is this news? Missing a French league 1 defender…really laughable…you would its a striker who scored 30 goals last season!!

  4. imagine we lose this game! We very likely WONT make AFCON 2019. Are the recent inclusions of players like Kalaba and Sunzu going to win or cost us the game? I think we are not serious. I don’t know the probability but we could lose this game. Someone explain the role of CHINTU. We have effective players like Shonga, Augustine, Ziyo Tembo to name a few…

  5. Lusaka times correct the news. it’s guinea and Namibia on top and not what you wrote.

    All the best to the Chipolopolo
