Brian Mwila completes move to Egypt after unsuccessful spell at Buildcon

Striker Brian Mwila has completed a three year deal at Egyptian side Smouha from Zambian side Buildcon, the ZamFoot Crew can reveal.

The 24 year old missed Buildcon’s 1-0 defeat to Power Dynamos in Kitwe on Sunday in the league and later on emerged that he has signed for the Egyptian side.

The Samfya native who was snapped up from Luapula by lower tier side Ndola Lime Hotspurs before spending a season at Kabwe Warriors made his name at Green Buffaloes.

2017 saw Mwila earn his international debut against Gabon and went on to make a

scoring competitive debut nine days later against South Africa in the Cosafa Cup.

At the turn of the year, Mwila had 8 goals in 11 appearances for Zambia.

A record better than the late Kelvin Mutale, the late Dennis Lota, Collins Mbesuma or Chris Katongo in their first 10 international games.

The highlight was a brace against Algeria in the World Cup qualifier at Heroes Stadium.

With such a scoring record, the striker transferred to South African side Platinum Stars in August 2017 where he struggled for form as he picked up niggling injuries.

Mwila spent unsuccessful four months in South Africa and luckily Zambian big spenders Buildcon signed him in January 2018.

A lot was expected from Mwila but a return of 2 goals saw him lose his place to Rahim Ousumanu at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

That dip in form also saw him omitted from the Chipolopolo Boys’ recent squads.

A change of environment would be good for Mwila, but Egypt hasn’t been a good destination for Zambian players.

Felix Katongo, Sate Sate, Patrick Ngoma and most recently Clatous Chama.

For Buildcon, it’s good business for offloading a striker coach Tenant Chembo had deemed surplus.

    I think, that’s the end of his career.

    • E. B says:

      Egypt has become a place for one to hang their boots, especially Zambians. The move makes sense for one who may not rediscover their form anymore so that they can earn their last coins of their career.

  2. Dynamite says:

    I would have loved for him to regain his fitness and sharpness that saw him earn a call up to the national team before he treks otherwise he will struggle

    It has nothing to do with Egypt. I disagree with that assumption. It is the mentality of the Zambian players and not the environment. Kenneth Malitoli did manage in Tunisia and Fwayo Tembo did well in the same country as well. Felix Katongo managed in Libya until the Gadaffi issue. Litana and Wawa Chongo managed in Saudi Arabia without issues

    The problem is some of the Zambian players who always put everything to God to help them. Everyone on earth is a child of God period. Meraning God cannot do it for a few, never. When it is said that “GOD HELPS THOSE THAT HELP THEMSELVES”, this is not a joke. Simple means if you don’t help yourself ninshi lobe mune.
    If this boy works hard and behaves well he will have no problem

  7. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

    The standards of football in Egypt are very high and so are the coaches very qualified. The pitches well maintained. Players are paid very well

  8. Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

    90 % of the Egyptian squad that is at the world cup are playing locally, just think of that

  9. Sibs says:

    I wish him well. It been hard ground for Zambian players in Egypt for sure. I hope he makes.

    He needs to earn some money, soccer is a short career.

  10. What about Tenant Chilumba , Godfrey kangwa and Pearson Mwanza
