  2. Prince says:

  3. PAPA GAME says:

    Kola should just be dropped and good for kangwa because he has the speed.our left back i have some doubt if he can contain Cameroon instead mbola should have been called.The good thing is cameroon will be left crying on that day after a a goal from sunzu and mweene will do alot of work but the win is ours .Go go chipolopolo

  4. john says:

    He is lacking creativity off the bench he has no plan b. Why is he ignoring lubambo musonda. He also should call mbola that defence is shaky

  5. kkkkkllll he his following his game plan

  6. Robert Joel Mbambala says:

  7. jbs simubernard says:

    chipolopolo all way

  8. Faty cirzo says:

    mbola nkausu and katongo is wanted

  9. chachine says:

    Wada please consider Lubambo and Mbola, our left full back is not okay, we need experience there,Mbola should take that position right away.

  10. Adebayo says:

    The defence ii cost as as they did to nigeria

  11. Zambia Buffalo says:

    In as much as I would be happy to see Mbola bouncer back, I respect the coach’s decision. Its good that the link which has been missing since 2012 we about to bridge it. Good call on Chansa, start shaping the deadly striking partnership of Kangwa and Sate Sate for the future, I am enjoying though we have slim chances to qualify. Remember right off NOBLE EAGLES the mighty Chipolopolo at your own peril we can pull a surprise like we did in 2012 when the whole world called us under dogs but managed to assassinate some of the big names in African football who have their sons in some of the most decorated leagues like EPL…etc. Back to coach, please avoid loosing home games have given you a benefit of dought you had the team less than a month before we played Nigeria to me its ok.Ba FAZ should also give room to the mushrooming soccer fan associations to go give support to the team in Cameroon. Go Zambia go Zambia its a goal….That’s the final whistle, Zambians are celebrating and Cameroonians are devastated!! To the players please carry the pride of our national identity, the Eagle in your hearts. Great Kalu showed us with consistency. Though Mayuka showed us against the black Stars of Ghana but lacked discipline. Imitate Great Kalu and die a little for mother Zambia, write history like you did in 2012 and we can do it for the first time to qualify to the world cup because the 12th player has always been will be with you in thick journey like 1993 disaster.FAZ can’t you use Heroes in one remaining qualifying matches?

    Finally! Evans inclusion will definitely add more pace in the final third. I know he can’t call all our favorite players. But perhaps he could also consider recalling E. Mbola and L. Musonda.

  13. Billy says:

    Roger Kola is excess baggage. I think Lubambo Musonda would have been a good inclusion as a substitute for Fwayo if he tires in the game. Lubambo plays like Fwayo on the attacking right wing position with those runs so he definitely should have been called. But anyway, coach knows why he left out these guys.

    • Pungwa says:

      @Billy, problem Lubambo has no end product. How many crosses does he deliver successfully ? He just has a tendency of running along that flank until he runs out of pitch. Lets try Charles Zulu, he will gain confidence, besides, he also had a stint in Portugal.

    Walter Bwalya…??? Don’t know much about him…but how about rewarding in form players….kalengo is struggling…use chamanga…beef defense with experience
