    Wow, this kid. All that time we didn’t see his true talent and thought he had incriminating evidence on FAZ or whoever was the national team coach because he kept getting selected for the U17 all the way to Senior national team.

    This boy is truly talented.

    • Prince says:

      Ha! I see what u r doing!! They rushed the kid and was crap! Daka has proved himself at his level…and probably needs to be upgraded to the senior team but it’s best we let him develop and gain confidence for greater challenges…

  2. Its good that those who use to insult him on this blorg are now licking they wounds continue working hard young man

    Thank you Zamfoot for listening to me and reporting on Daka. ….This guy is doing serious things and instead u are reporting on monkeys ….fluffing around in the local league….Daka is the next Samuel Eto

    • Positive thinking says:

      Monkeys??!!!! What the hell kind of attitude is that towards the players in the local league?

      Soccerguru…that statement is truly offensive and you really should choose your words carefully.

      The local league is extremely important. These players don’t get born professional footballers, and the local league is where this journey or process starts.

    Patson Daka one of the top Five talents to look out for according to EUFA.Hope he keeps this momentum going.It is good he has gone to europe at an early age so that he can embrace the european mental strength early in his proffessional career.Skill is not a problem for Zambian footballers but they lack the right mentality when in europe but the likes of evans kangwa and new boys are proving to be on right path.Follow the link below
