    Ba FAXET aba, they are already playing mind games.
    How do you bring an injured player to Zambia all the way from Tunisia?

      True, tebakukonkelesha aba. North African teams have been playing mind games from time in-memorial; and each time they do that, Zambian teams come down crashing with a thud! It will be sad for ba Chambeshi and team to buy into these mind games. Sfaxien will come out blazing. I doubt Nkana is going through. I await to swallow my humble pies.

    I agree with you guys. These are all mind games by Sfaxien. I didn’t know Rudi Krol the former Orlando Pirates Coach is Managing the team now.
    Nkana are very bad travelers and if they don’t get any anything like a 2 goal cushion at home then its over.
