    Good initiative, now show us another one√

    Christopher Katongo awards ??? what is that? Has he formed a skills center for upcoming footballers?

  2. Prince says:

    Off topic; what is happening with the boys in Spain?

    • Nostra says:

      Attacking midfielder is the only position Zambians know to play. And is so competitive, even Kalaba don’t know his position in Chipolopolo.
      so my advice to boy Kenneth is to grab modern # 2 mwaiche. Prolific Right back. Convert like ManU’ Antonio Valentia.

  3. Big Steve 4rm SA says:

    Zamfoot if you could please elaborate on the Christopher Katongo Football thing. Is it an academy?? We need to celebrate such community contributions from our star players players both former and current.

    @ Prince good question.

  4. Bsimms says:

    Two clarifications!!!!!!!this guy is 20 years exactly, why do you still call him under-20. Secondly, I find it incredible(though possible) that someone who has just turned 20(2017) actually completed grade 12 in 2013!!!!!!However, as I said, moany youngsters are completing school early, but with the problems we ve had in football, I would check this guy again before including him in my under-20 team!!!!!!!!!!??????

  10. Sibs says:

    @Zagwa. Its very possible for someone to finish Grade 12 at 15 or 16 years. Though i totally agree we need to check him out and any other players that we suspect to be over age.

  11. Discipline says:

    Those schools my friends it is no surprise,kids finish that age hence no need to even double check the lad I can assure you he is very legit
