    Why did tha coach drop chrispin sakulanda? Its unfair

    • Luapula bize says:

      Sakulanda failed to prove himself at the BIG STAGE(Africa cup). Other than a few flashes when he came in as a sub against Guinea, aswell as shinning at the COSAFA Cup in SA, he failed to impose himself well at the U20 Afcon. He looked shaky; Rarely completed his passes well. Terrible shooting at goal. One could see that he wasn’t good enough for any big stage at the moment. HE EXHIBITED LOW CONFIDENCE. Someone needs to help him work on the aspect of self belief. That’s my opinion.

        Equally Muchanga, failed to shine, he has been picked based on past glory, his position is competitive, he can only find a place when there are injuries in the Team
