    Vandenbroeck…Call Jacob

  2. Pundit says:

    This guy has character we need him to compliment Patson he brings a wealth of experience Sven consider this guy at 34 he can feature at nxt years afcon

  3. Has this guy not retired playing for the national team? He’s a scoring machine.

  4. Positive thinking says:

    This guy for me is an enigma when it comes to the national team shirt. He is one of the most successful overseas campaigners to wear the Zambia shirt. He has been successful everywhere he has been, Chetterouex, Utrecht, Turkey, and now China.

    The thing that has been difficult for him, I think, has been the Zambian system of play. In 2010, we all saw the best of Jacob Mulenga in a Zambia shirt. He and Chamanga complimented eachother so well as the twin towers or strikers during AFCON 2010. Even under Bonetti he was getting rare opportunities, but he was overshadowed by the younger faster Mayuka.

    He missed out on 2012 success, but was part of the team that failed in 2013. I recall him coming into the match and he seemed very unsure of himself and couldn’t even control the long balls that were being pumped to him.

    I wish he could get another run in the national team jersey, but it will depend on Vandenbroack’s approach. Either way, this young man (Kaili mwaiche pali ine) has had an amazing career. I am glad to have watched this lad go from strength to strength. I do miss watching highlights of Utrecht and the goals that he scored.

    I think Zamfoot should do an article about which Zambian players have had the most successful overseas careers. Jacob is probably top 5. Only Kalu and Charles Musonda or maybe even Chris Katongo can compare.
