    Zambian Players seem to be doing fine at their Club level, but when it comes to National Team level, their performance is very very dissappointing. What could be the reason?

  2. Naked goal says:

    We have a lot of good players who can win Zambia a second AFCON trophy, the only thing we have to do right is to get a good coach. Chiyangi should be an assistant. At the moment we don’t have a local coach who can help our team.


    Zambia is a great footballing nation but the down side is we do not export a lot players abroad and overseas. Let me give an example of Nigeria and DRC they have between them over 1000 players scattered all over the world with Nigeria boasting of at least 800 players all over the world and DRC 300. Zambia has about 36 players scattered all over the world, looking at these number we should have had at least 60 players scattered all over the world that is why Zimbabwe, Mozambique Angola South Africa etc are overtaking us and soon we might be a team to beat easily if we do not change our strategy.

    For those that didn’t know Simba and TP played out to a goalless draw.

    I have to give a hand clap to Mamelodi Sundowns. Beating Al Ahly 5-0 was an amazing feat. At least they still give us hope of the CAF champions league coming back to this part of Africa. They lost two of their biggest stars and yet are still doing well in the CAF games and the PSL. I see Kennedy Mweene adding another medal to his collection this year.

    By the way Noah Chivuta also scored a beauty of a freekick out in Thailand.

    I hope the game plan of Nkana in the return leg will not be to try and defend the lead. They will be playing to a hostile crowd and as per norm the North Africans will apply a physical game just to try and frustrate. I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the return leg and how the coach will prepare the players both tactically and mentally.
