  1. Mangani Banda is not a National team material and that is reason why we failed to penetrate further in the under 20 world cup.He allows silly goals and he is a let down. And where is Lawrence Mundanga, the Nkwazi man?

  2. Chambeshi please call Emmanuel Chabula and Maybin Kalengo for assessment,,,,,,,,,,,

    • Ba Coach Chambeshi please listen to our cries I agree with Shiwalilwa we need to strengthen team I have been singing about the inclusion of new players in the team but it seems you have chosen to stick with the 2017 U20 squad even though some are under-performing why are you doing this please tell the nation as that team is not yours it is for the Country.

  3. I agree with these comments on BC ‘Quicksilver”
    Chambeshi listen and listen up man. This about preservation of our national pride as a soccer power house on the continent! Its not about those proud boys who became big headed after 2017 glory and left clubs which were glooming them eg Solomon left Warriors went to Napsa then again to Zesco after lifting the junior Afcon. Tekanya mwaiche – wibensa ! Such players need to be sat down and counselled before they go into oblivion – don’t cheat them by selecting them for national duty yet they can’t feature at club level !
