Shepolopolo Returns From Olympics

Sports Shepolopolo Returns From Olympics

Shepolopolo on Thursday night received a warm welcome on arrival in Lusaka from the Tokyo Olympics in Japan.

The women’s team landed together with boxer Stephen Zimba and judoka Steven Mung’andu who were eliminated from their respective events this week.

The group was welcomed by officials from the Government, Olympic Committee FAZ and Boxing federation.

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

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.

This was the first time Zambia participated in women football at the Olympics.


  1. The girls did what was possible given the challenges they had during preparation and also the experience. This team with a very meticulous coach in terms of game manage, can go far. Boys, leave them alone!!

  2. A very poor and disappointing performance by team Zambia. Its like they just came for a short sight seeing tour.

  3. The girls performed poorly due to lack of exposure, experience and the preparations were not enough coupled with their long lay off due to covid-19 pandemic. They started gaining confidence as the games progressed. There is need to have as many girls as possible playing soccer abroad even in lower leagues to get the exposure. The truth be told, the preparations were not enough for the girls going to participate at the higher stage such as World Olympics.

  4. What is Lusambo saying after the girls showed character at the Olympics, going shoulder with big sister Brazil! Blaming Kamanga again! Kamanga doesn’t train the teams, he just provides financial and managerial direction! Just like if Lusambo’s third born is doing badly at school, after Mr. Lusambo has provided him with everything starting with shelter and food at home to transport to and from school, money for lunch to necessary school books and paying school fees! Can we blame Mr. Bowman Lusambo or bad conditions at school and teachers wrong teaching methods? Let us think beyond the box when criticing please!
