    Mr. Chambeshi, naimwe mudala how do you point out the weaknesses of your opponents before you play them in the last game. On this one you are wrong. Why not leave them and capitalize on that in the return game. You can’t warn your enemy naimwe

    All you could have said was that Malawi was the better said and that we won because we were lucky (Public). To let them think that way

    Ba Kafusha is spot on. Even when you outplay your opponents give them some respect. Know what to tell the media and what to keep to for the dressing room otherwise your words may come back to haunt you. Good away result though and hopefully we can build on it.

  5. Paddy says:

    Lets also stop this silly “Bola Na Lesa” thing.

  6. Kasama Boy says:

    Over confidence is another issue to look out for.
    Those Malawians trained in England for a month, they could have just been jittery in front of their own crowd, and may turn on the heat in Zambia.
    Otherwise congratulations to our boys.
    May 2019 bring smiles on our faces.
