  1. Here we go again. FASHION is left out because the young man is donating food to his family.
    Let the boy do his charities, not everything is political.

    • How does someone even think like this? Would it hurt o just ask why Fashion is not in the squad than to jump to crazy conclusions?

  2. Fashion Sakala and FAZ president Andrew Kamanga come from the same area that Fashion is feeding. Who is playing politics with whom? Stop concocting crap to peddle fake narratives

  3. I COMMAND ZANACO TO HELP CHIPOPOLO ON FUNDS BY TNATION FOUNDATION AND HIRE FASHION SAKALA AND PATSON DAKA AS BRAND AMBASSADORS

  4. Now Malawi is getting ahead of us. Federations that are serious about preparations for their team organize such tournaments. Let’s not be surprised if we begin to lose to teams like Malawi. The current FAZ ExCo isn’t taking us anywhere. We’ll continue to underperform at national team level. In fact we didn’t need to assemble such a team just to face teams like Malawi, Zimbabwe and Kenya. Local players can do it. So the message from Grant is that we don’t have a nursery of players

    • Ayatollah – the friendlies are meant to prepare the team for world cup qualifiers, the players who play those games against Tanzania and Morocco should be called

    • Stoopid Africans! You are just transmitting self-hate as exposed by Steve Biko. You under-rate fellow Africans because they are Africans. Do you want to play Germany and Brazil when you are preparing for African teams?

    • Aba ba Coach ine nilibe hope. Can him and the FAZ boss just pack up and go? Life will be fresher after their departure
