Shepolopolo Stars Review Their Olympic Debut

Sports Shepolopolo Stars Review Their Olympic Debut

Shepolopolo players are reflecting on their experience at the Tokyo Olympic Games in Japan.

Zambia exited the women football competition on Tuesday at the group stage after two defeats and a draw.

“I have seen that we have improved in defending and attacking. We are going to qualify for the next Olympics,” said striker Rachael Kundananji.

The Bruce Mwape coached Zambian side started the campaign with a 10-3 loss to Holland before forcing a 4-4 draw against China and lost 1-0 to Brazil in their final Group F match on Tuesday.

“We are not losers. We are champions as you can see we are here. We gained experience as you can see we played against experienced players,” Kundananji said.

She added:”We can work on defending. As you can see we are able to score goals. We want to go to the Africa Cup and come back with the cup.”

Captain Barbra Banda, who scored two hat-tracks in Japan, highlighted the exposure gained from the global competition.

“I have learnt a lot. I have gained experience from the different teams we have played against” Banda said.

“We are coming up well as a team. Definitely we have been exposed as players.”

The team is expected to arrive back home on Thursday.


  1. The girls surprised me. I never celebrate losses but those girl have something special. They showed character. I think they will be the best team on the African continent. The coach should have started with the team that played the last match including all the subs. I think the coach can assist the men’s team. Can’t say ‘well done’ but ‘go start’. I see a future team. One time when I said watch Patson Daka someone insulted…

  2. But imwe fi PF, you expected Zambians to win olympics??? Like those beauties have said, they are the champions. The played against players who have been to Olympics 5 times. keep these girls active. A country without first-lady.
    unfortunately Zambia will be the last appearance for next 25 years again.

  3. It was a good learning experience against seasoned teams. We are proud of you for holding super Brazil to 1 – 0 which is no mean achievement.

  4. If you have nothing to say just zip up. You can’t keep learning forever. Fifty seven years old and Zambian sport has no administration. Just like zambian government does not. Mpondela Kamanga Lungu all don’t have leadership qualities
