Sven Vandenbroeck has made two changes to his team for Chipolopolo’s 2019 AFCON Group K penultimate qualifier against Mozambique on November 18 away in Maputo.

Zesco United defender Simon Silwimba and midfielder Emmanuel Banda of KV Oostende in Belgium finally get a call-up from Vandenbroeck since the Belgian’s appointment in July.

Banda and Silwimba return to the fold for the first time since the Four Nations Tournament that Zambia hosted in Ndola from March 21-24.

Out is the Zesco duo of defender Fackson Kapumbu and striker Lazarus Kambole.

Chipolopolo are bottom of Group K on 4 points from as many games played and three points behind Mozambique who are second where they are tied on 7 points with leaders Namibia.

Guinea Bissau are third on 4 points with two games left to play.

  1. The team looks like the Zambian Cabinet with lots of useless players/ministers/ministries… You can chop 4 players one from defence and three from midfield and one from frontline. Any way, bench them. Whats your guess on cabinet. Clue, Religion Minister, …


    • Sven should play Salulani ku 2, Emmanuel ku 3. He needs to move from playing traditional. Did you watch Woibi of Asernal playing ku 2 last week? Look at Ashley Young of ManU from striker to full back.

      1. Mweene (sad that Zambia has no option)
      2. Salulani
      3. Emmanuel Banda
      4. Kabaso
      5. Stopilla
      6. Nathan
      7. Augustine
      8. Mwepu
      9. Patson
      10. Shonga
      11. Kalaba
      Unless coach is not interested in winning. Previous coaches were like “building team, developmental, learn 1 or 2 things”. Annoying.
      Then keep searching for another Mweene. Where is Mangani, sell him to Green Eagles or Caf deadline past?


  2. Looks a good selection of players, except that Kambole should have been maintained and also bring in Kampama mulenga from Nkana in place of either Bruce Msakanya or salulani Phiri. Anyway the team is great all the same.
