    Sinkala had so much promise….its a shame how he has failed to deliver….we hope young Ngosa Sunzu and Boyd Musonda can develop into decent holding midfielders

  2. Chimpombwa says:

    Sinkala has been off form for a whiiiiiiillleeee. Its about time. A replacement for Mweene is what seems the hardest at the moment. Mangani Banda, though good is too short and can be shaky sometimes.

    useless selection. Jackson Mwanza and Mbesuma are coming from a long period of injury.

  5. Tony mash says:

    Very poor team selection indeed this coach is an idiot..

  6. Amuna Onzuna says:

    I think Nyirenda is living in the past.
    Mbesuma is currently too heavy , we need versatility

  7. Ngake says:

    I am now believing people who keep saying wada is not up to scratch as a national team coach. Collins has not played a proper game this year. Winston Kalengo last scored 5 months ago. The rest of the players upfront leave me speechless (shonga, and given??), maybe Jackson Mwanza has something but he is coming off an injury. Why not select – Jacob Mulenga, Chamanga or Evans Kangwa, maybe even try Moses Phiri in portugal. There is no one up front in that selected team.

      I watched him playing here in South Africa for Kaizer Chiefs and he was such a terrific striker in the early 90s.But I do not think he qualifies to be a coach in my personal point of view.Bring Patrick Phiri and Beston Chambeshi as coaches for the Zambia senior side

  8. Kasama Boy says:

    Don’t worry kuli Nyondo, mwana wakwitu, Enoch Mwepu and others from that history making team currently in Korea.

  9. Egwugwu says:

    This team is full of former and current ZANACO players.I see this coach failing . augstine mulenga,dave daka,ziyo ,taonga ,toaster,fackson and george chilufya.

    I would rather watch the under 20 than these chickens

  10. Tagagani says:

    The coach has stopped thinking.

  11. Amandla says:

    Very soon, “Zambia B” will become “Zambia A” and I think the boys deserve it!

  12. Mubs says:

    How has the Walter Bwalya story gone?

  13. Spheran says:

    Why not calling for under 20 from South Korea!
