“Our team is now through to final round of the under-17 women’s World Cup qualifiers because of this.”

When ask if CAF presented reasons to the federation on why Zambia decided to pull out at such short notice, Jordan said there were not informed.

      Unbelievable. The U17 women are the only ones who achieved anything in the last 3 yrs i.e. qualified for the U17 world cup and you call it a waste. The senior men’s national team has been more of a waste than these young ladies. It’s clear FAZ has no plan, and these girls despite representing Zambia at the highest level in their age group are now being tossed to the side. What a shame! Even more so attitudes of people like you.

    If the government is block, what about FAZ? This is just the begining, you are yet to see more of the unheard of in Zambian history. Faz wants a nee coach & they know that Zambian desparately needs one aheard of the AFCON & World cup qualifiers, but the block partner can afford. That is the reason why Faz decided to bring in Kawir just to beaf up the intelligennce on the coaching bench. Otherwise, we are yet to cry ba Zed

  4. no future in young ladies!
