Sakuwaha, Sikombe, Shamujompa lead the pack as shadow Chipolopolo arrive in Gabon


The shadow Chipolopolo Boys have arrived in Libreville ahead of Saturday’s friendly match against Gabon.

Coach Wedson Nyirenda has named a relatively inexperienced side for the match.

A number of players have less than 5 caps.

Jonas Sakuwaha is the only member of the team with African Cup of Nations medal though he only played barely 2 minutes in the 3-0 quarter final win over Sudan in that sentimental substitution in Equatorial Guinea.

In terms of truly coming to the fold, Sakuwaha was a key member at the CHAN 2009 alongside Ignitius Lwipa as they helped Zambia to bronze.

Fwayo Tembo is another one with experience but the talented player lacks tournament experience as he is yet to feature for Zambia at a senior tournament.

Then there’s Nkana’s favourite son Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba. The boy from Wusakile was part of the 2015 African Cup of Nations squad which flopped.

It is a team of rookies and Wada Wada will hope for a better result.

With Zanaco and Zesco United involved in CAF Champions and Confederations cup, it is chance for the local players to force their way into the CHAN and COSAFA sides.

Zambia will face Swaziland and Botswana in CHAN and COSAFA respectively.

Before that there’s an African Cup of Nations qualifier against Mozambique at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium next weekend.

    So why didn’t he call the foreign based players? Are these the same players we are going to use in the qualifier or we are just helping Gabon to prepare for their Qualifiers? Where are the Chipolopolo regulars? Chisamba Lungu, Sunzu etc should be off season right? Kalaba, Mweene. Whats the deal here? With the way the u-20 is playing, we don’t want mediocre results from the senior team, we are spoiled with great football from the young men, so Wada wada better know that. Save for Fwayo Tembo, the rest of the team is suspect have done nothing to convince me and many Zambians that they can deliver at the main stage. Either way we are supporting them and Good luck.

    So what jersey is the senior team wearing kanshi? Why are they still in Kappa training kits?

    I believe in my very heart…Zambia is going to Russia 2018!

    That big headed Chama boy should not be anywhere near a Zambia jersey after he gave away those silly goals to Nigeria. Period!

    it now explains why they negotiated the new kit and got only 200 000 us dollars per year. I wonder how much Kappa is giving the officials for promoting their kit. Decide on one kit provider and honor the terms of the contract.

    Captivating title, “Shadow Chipolopolo”. When a bullet passes you can’t see it and hardly can you even envisage seeing its shadow.
    We expect nothing less than a win in Gabon.
