    Why change a winning team? Zambian coaches are problem. Stick to the team that won the cup. You will be demoralising those lads who worked so tirelessly in the tournament.

    Sunzu is the only player we need because of his physical presence. I’m not sure about the rest

  9. TWAFWANE says:

    Abasungu will let you play freely and don’t even look at your age but beat them , that is when you gonna see them saying you are old.

    So safety first, lets get young players and not imidala.
