Chipolopolo unconvincingly toiled to 2020 CHAN qualification after eSwatini held them 2-2 at home in Lusaka on Saturday.

The result saw Zambia qualify 3-2 on aggregate but the qualification was met with a hail of bottles and objectiles from dissatisfied fans after the final whistle at National Heroes Stadium.

” Well to be honest I feel some of these fans need to be questioned why they want to kill the players? Yes we accept we didn’t play well, but why stone us?”Chipolopolo coach Aggrey Chiyangi said.

Meanwhile, a brace by Emmanuel Chabula in the 4th and 56th minutes salvaged the home draw.

But Dlamini Phinda struck in the 58th minute while Sifiso Matse equalized in the 76th minute to stugger and pin Zambia to the final whistle.

  1. Are you convinced that Chiyangi will not take Chipolopolo anywhere?99% of the games , the national team has conceded goals in the last matches they have played. How will they handle Algeria and sharp Zimbabwe strikers?
    FAZ must convince the Ministry of Sports to give the new coach, Vaseline a chance. I really doubt if Chinyangi will qualify the teams to AFCON finals.

    • Chiyangi shouldn’t be selecting team basing on “balancing” tribe and clubs. It is wrong to have politics. We have said so many times that never use Toaster Nsabata in goal, NEVER. If he wants Nsabata to play then let him play left-back, because team has no defenders anyway.
      Mwange didn’t play be just because of not accused of over selecting from Green Eagles. Green Eagles are doing good because of good goalkeeper, give Mwange a chance, he has been good in all his games.

  2. With that team he beat Zimbabwe – the team that played in the Afcon. The team, even if conceding is not losing like the previous teams after 2012. Yes, he can beat Algeria or any indeed any other team.
    Remember it is chiyangi and that clumsy striker that delivered the cosafa which perceived better teams failed.
    Yes, in the eswatini match, the technical bench made a mistake especially on substituting chabula leaving kaseba.
    Let’s not be emotional

  3. Indeed it was a big mistake to substute Chabula leaving instead of kaseba whale they new that they ndont have striker on bench. Kampamba also substuted because he was move to the number of his choice, any ba Chiyagi have qualified.

  4. I know some of you are itching to blame Nkana supporters for this but sorry we were in Kabwe and there was no trouble when we also drew 2-2

  5. It will be a grave mistake to appoint a Zambian Coach as Chipolopolo Coach. All of them lack technicalities of modern football. Results we are getting shows, we need a high profile Coach.
