      Why are these girls not going to play abroad, places like Sweden or USA where women soccer is advanced?
      Especially that Barbara Banda is really a classy player.

    Well done girls. But bwana reporter, what is massive about 1-0 victory? The scoreline is a slender victory but certainly points matter. Choice of words?

    • ZamFoot says:

      Bwana George, if your follow right from the headline, the size of this win is not in the number of goals but the strength of the opponent brought down. To add a little more detail to help perception, Cameroon were runners up at the last Africa Cup of Nations and represented Africa at the last World Cup where they had a decent run coming out in the round of 16.

      Zambia has only been to the Africa Cup once in 2014 when it was hosted by Namibia

  11. Prince says:

    Congratulations ladies…more fire!

  12. Julio says:

    Well done to our ladies. The big they come, the harder they fall.

  13. Kasama Boy says:

    I am also flabbergasted.
    When I saw Cameroun 8 Mozambique 1;
    Then remembered a few moons ago the real Chipolopolo:
    Zambia 0 Mozambique 1 in Lusaka.

    When I saw the prospects of our lasses meeting the dreaded Cameroun,
    Nali umfwa umwenso Boys, Girls naliumfwa umwenso.

    You ladies have made me believe.
    Now I believe.
