  1. This is good for our football it strengthens our league and our players became more marketable outside the country. I would like to encourage the players from all the teams to work hard and exhibit discipline if they are to succeed as a club and as individual players as well.

    • Very good LT.
      Eagles and Buffaloes need be commended, they have no luxury of recruiting foreign players.
      Immigration system in Zambia is very tough.
      George Wear’s son plays in USA national team, and he useless player.

  2. The exposure of previously unknown players like Anos Tembo will give the national team coach more players to choose from
