    Where is Sunzu ?

  3. Coach says:

    What’s this “bola na lesa” nonsense?

  4. Anita says:

    Is this a FIFA sanctioned tournament. i ask this because the leagues are still on in Europe and South Africa where these foreign based players summoned ply their trade.

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      Thinking the same? Leave the European and South Africa based players alone. Give chance to those playing Local. Boys like Mwepu, Banda and Sakala are fighting for first team places at their respective clubs. Augustine Mulenga and Shonga are new at their clubs. Why include them?? This is total rubbish

      Select local players as winning this 4 TEAM TOURNEY will not change anything. Include players from the under20 who are playing local

  8. Dynamite says:

    I dont know what the coach is trying to achieve with this combination of players. We keep going back & forth with no consistency & real direction

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      This coach will never take us anywhere. FAZ are sticking with him because there are no funds to bring a better and Quality coach. Remember a quality coach does not cost peanuts

    During The 2018 World Cup Qualifier Against Nigeria In Nigeria, Wedson Called Patson While He Knew He Was Injured. Today I am Surprised He Has Summoned His Name Why? We Ar Tired Of Hearing The Same Complaint “DISPITE HAVING INJURIES TO KEY PLAYERS”. Surely, That Game In Uyo Could Hav Been Ours If We Had Sharp & Experienced Strikers Like Evans Kangwa, Mbesuma, Sate- Sate, Mayuka, Singuluma And Others. But He Opted To Call Injured Daka. Whats That??? Pliz Faz We Dont Want Reshufles!! We Want Real Change. Those Assistants U Hav Fired Ar Innocent Souls. How Do U Fire Subordinates Leaving Out Their Boss? Shame On U
