    @ Big Steve 4rm S.A.

    Let me pick your mind on this one (Off topic):

    Under 20:
    I’ve no doubt every soccer loving Zambian’s desire is to see the boys get crowned as the Total 2017 champions and thereafter be among the teams flying the Caf flag higher at the world cup in Korea later this year.

    The big question is. Do you think we should as a nation concentrate on grooming this squad to represent Zambia in the next Afcon in Cameroon?

    Cameroon have made it to the (2017) final with a youthful squad.

    Am not ruling out the current crop of national team players but I feel we have not done well as a nation in terms of team building. Look at the wasted talent of the following:

    √. Fwayo Tembo

    √. Mukuka Mulenga

    √. Clifford Mulenga

    √. Rodger Kola

    √. Ronald kampamba

    Abundant talent but nothing to show for beyond U. 20

    Rodger Kola, Clifford Mulenga, Fwayo Tembo did not sing “His Masters Voice”( The so called legend of Zambian football). Kampamba, Mukuka Mulenga r just flops, no one to blame!
