    Well done Mwebana besu please bring the cup home you will score 5 goals.
    I am happy our striking power it is unmatched at all levels but we need to sort out our defense as I have seen lapses with both the senior and junior teams.

    Yes defence is costing Zambia at all levels especially when are playing in these high quality tournaments or qualifiers…e.g World Cup or Afcon.We saw lapses with U20 where it was easy to score but the defence gave up goals like 🎅 Claus.
    FAZ must get the likes of Tana, Sichone etc a d work exclusively with defend er s even if it is on an ad-hoc basis.
    By losing or conceding or making rash tackles in dangerous what we build in attack evaporates because we the backline is not organize…they don’t read each other…they chase one attacker among two or three players…they don’t protect the ball.
    .or shield the ball or put their bodies on the line. If Zambia works on this department, brings Jacob Mulenga to lead attack with Fashion Sakala, Isaac Chansa Fwayo, Lubambo Musonda or Mukuka Mulenga…we can entertain a World Cup appearance if we win all remaining games a win away! Hopefully in Nigeria!

      Super sport is just a little late, the comentators would have been talking about the Numba flick. We have seen scorpion kicks, Blanco lips, Zidane turns and all…the Numba Mumamba flick was also special.
