  1. FIFA Rankings! Anyway, i cant complain much otherwise our team has only it’self to blame. Those who win games home and away consistently have been rewarded. Even though i don’t agree with the ranking system, it is important that we pay attention to them by improving our game.

  2. Lets face reality. The rankings are not fake. They are based on performance and the same formula for calculating points is applied to all teams. Our team has not been performing well. Thats the bottom line. We need to be winning games and we will move up.

  3. The team was pathetic under Renard. Janza hasn’t done to badly his only failure was a pathetic draw with minnows mozambique. We should climb these rankings by beating cape Verde and mozambique next month.

  4. We expected zambia to beat Cape V,Niger in Niger and Mozambique. No need to defend Janza here. For how long will we accept these poor/pathetic performances from these so called coaches. Our group is not tough at all. Janza can do better in division 2.
