Mbesuma Open to Chipolopolo Return

Sports Feature Sports Mbesuma Open to Chipolopolo Return

Veteran striker Collins Mbesuma has disclosed that he is open to a Chipolopolo return,

The 36-year-old 2012 AFCON winner currently plyas for South African second tierclub Univeisty of Pretoria.

“I am still available if needed. I feel there is something I can still offer at the national team,” Mbesuma told The Times of Zambia.

“I am doing well in my career and scoring goals. This season I managed to score 11 goals and I am sure I can play a part and help the national team.”

Mbesuma last featured for Zambia in 2017 during the reign of Wedson Nyirenda where he scored two goals in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.


  1. For sure you’re a goal poacher with experience ,but the only problem is kamanga has gotten rid of all those who won the afcon 2012, dont listern to this fooolish engeneer above who is askn you to retire yet you are not tired.

  2. May his national team boots stay hanged. Thanks for the offer but we have Patson Daka and Shonga, kambole, Chanula, Francesco Mwepu , Patrick Gondwe etc.

  3. Continue resting those legs Collin, you did your best during your playing time, the younger generation got your back.

  4. With Zambia losing 6-0 anyone can play. Mbesuma Chris Katongo Isaac Chansa even Kalusha must all return

  5. With Zambia losing 6-0 anyone can play. Mbesuma Chris Katongo Isaac Chansa even Kalusha must all return

  6. With Zambia losing 6-0 anyone can play. Mbesuma Chris Katongo Isaac Chansa even Kalusha Bwalya must all return

  7. When he was in his peak he failed to
    Help chipolopolo now at thirty six
    What can he help.let him help children
    In the under tens.

  8. Great son of the soil, has done a lot for Zambian football but maybe it is time to retire and give chance to others.
    better to leave the podium while the audience is still applauding


  10. It is a kind of “the spirit is willing but the body is weak”. He was such a great striker and he is still doing well in the lower divisions, but this shouldn’t mislead him; he can’t play competitive/higher division football anymore.

  11. He is of course welcome, but in a different role than being the main striker. He could for example be the anchor man in the dressing room, thats how senior players do it towards their final retirement. Good luck Ntofontofo!!

  12. I still remember how excited I was when Mbesuma, joined Portsmouth, I even went to watch him play, so sad he didnt make it in the Premier league. Unfortunately he fell out of favour with hARRY rEDNAPP for being overweight.
