  2. Big Steve 4rm SA says:

    So my team City of Lusaka have failed to get any names on the national team list and league super stars Lumwana only one player!!

    And the goal keepers what happening gents in Zambia. We seem to have new names all the time, is there no goal keeper in the Zambian league showing high levels of consistency?

    That said….lets go Zambia…..lets add to the trophy cabinet.

    • Positive thinking says:

      Dude, definitely agree on the goal keeper front. It’s like there is rotating door in that position.

      Mweene, seems to be the only guy we have. We have an urgent need for a permanent number 2.

    go chipolata look go

  4. josh says:

    go chipolopolo go

  5. sly says:

    Is Ronald Chibwe not good enough to be part of this team?

  6. sly says:

    Buffaloes have a pair of strikers who are young and promising. Brian Mwila is one. Surely, they can be of use for Zambia.

  7. Tindi says:

    I can’t see Walter Bwalya can faz tell us why?

  8. Ati his Zambian is same as his Congo.

  9. General says:

    With this team we will loose all the two friendlies.

  10. richpopo says:

    i agree wit general we’ll loose,only 3 players r competent to handle such games fwayo,c chama nd malama awe sure

  11. csm dizynut says:

    just not be good on posting on wrong things

  12. Logic says:

    This is a tough one. On the one hand, you want to use friendlies to experiment and try out new players but on the other hand, if the friendlies are in preparation for upcoming competitive qualifying games, shouldn’t you be focusing on those players who you know will be involved in the competitive games? Tournaments like COSAFA and CHAN can be utilized for experiments and that’s where lineups like the one above makes sense. This just seems very upside down to me

  13. Tony mash says:

    Katebe and chris muthali are missing

  14. General says:

    This coach is just like George chicken. He was suppose to try players he is likely to use in the upcoming games. Such as chamanga,Munthali,mayuka and katebe.

  15. Mingalato says:

    Bruce Musakanya, Katebe, Munthali
