    Its good the boys are having game time though suffered defeat. We all expect the coach to add value to the team by calling brian mwila, malama, kabwe, gampami jones lungu and banda. They will bring in competion. Our bench looks very weak.

  2. Kasama Boy says:

    These coaches, using Mwepu in Defence? Even if the coach knows better I feel this is what is messing up this Mwepu’s performance at both club and national team.

  3. Kensplash says:

    This simply shows that Mwepu is not just a player but a utility player who can fit in any position.

  4. Sibs says:

    I think its good for Mwepu to have game time rather than say he can only play as a Midfielder. Victor Moses for Chelsea has done very well especially last two seasons as a Right Wing Back. But for Nigeria he was equally menacing as Front Winger.
    Conte used Moses well at the back. In Modern soccer you adapt. Valencia of Man United same story….
