    Congratulations to our ladies….curiously speaking, what was the final score? i tried to figure it out by who the scorers were, looks like 6-3.

  3. Zulu says:

    My question has not been answered and I am curious to know..Has Zambia ever won an away match on West African Soil? i.e Ghana Nigeria?

  4. Zulu says:

    Question for Zamfoot to research the record for Zambia’s Away wins in WEST AFRICA? this should give us an indication on where Zambia stands

    You gave us history before on Zambia’s ever first soccer game played which was against the Ghana black stars during your independence day and lost to Ghana, making your first ever lost with many more to come from West Africans, So my question to Zamfoot is since that day of indepenance how many times has Zambia gone to west Africa and won? how many time has west Africa come to Zambia and win? Please we want FACTS

  5. Zulu says:

    So No Zambian wants to answer this simple question? if not then I suggest you people keep your mouth shut and play the match with tactics and hope for a historic win away in west Africa to mark your world cup birth
