  55. Papa says:

    Wonderful news that Silwimba will miss the quarter finals. Mediocre player who should be playing in divison 1. He is just a pile of muscle with no skill.

  56. Mwebantu says:

    @Papa, If you are right then the coach must be sucked!

  57. Mwebantu says:

    Some players! You know it is an opportunity of a life time and you can’t score? Useless!

  58. Anonymous says:

    Zambia has a serious weakness that happens to be the strength of almost all her opponents. Possession! Zambia looks content in playing second fiddle in this aspect of football. If Zambia loses it will because they surrendered the possession to their opponents.

  59. Mwebantu says:

    @Mingalato, Namibia didn’t play two great games! They scored in injury time in both games! Only the last goal was of course superb! Of late, we have made ourselves even to allow teams such as Swaziland, Botswana etc, feel comfortable playing us when they used to shake each time we were meeting them! We call this mediocrity!

  60. HardBullZ says:

    This was a chipante pante style, I wish Nyirenda played the other team members as a way to motivate them. Namibia and Sudan play same style, maybe it’s good that we have practised what to expect

  61. Anita says:

    This was a bad performance by Zambia. We were just kicking the ball in front with the hope of finding a teammate.The team has no ball players like Fwayo, Chota Chama etc. Mulenga was poor today just like most of the players

  62. kampinda says:

    Unbelievable how bad the guys were after 2 great performances!!!1
