Chipolopolo jet into Johannesburg ahead on Sunday clash

The Chipolopolo Boys have arrived in South Africa ahead of Sunday’s AFCON qualifier against Lesotho to be played at Dobsonville.

The team left immediately after the match via a chartered Zambian Airways flight. 

Zambia moved to the top of Group H following an impressive 3-1 comeback win over Likuena at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium. 

Serie A star Lameck Banda scored a brace to guide Chipolopolo to a comprehensive 3-1 win. 

Fashion Sakala brought the Copper Bullets back on level terms in the 37th minute after Tsoarelo Bereng had put Likuena in the lead four minutes earlier thanks to a Toaster Nsabata blunder. 

Avram Grant will be hoping to continue his reign on a positive note and record back to back wins to put Zambia in an advantageous position for AFCON qualification

Zambia last appeared at the continental showpiece back in 2015.

  1. Coach Abram Grant needs to make serious changes to the midfield and front line because there were some passengers in those 2 sectors! Midfield and front line only Emmanuel Banda and Fashion Sakala should be maintained! The rest should be replaced by Cletus Chama, Mubanga Kampamba, Felix Kambole and Kennedy Musonda. Then Zambia will be on fire and wallop Lesotho 7-0 in their back-yard!

  2. Yes yes, I wondered why grant would not substitute patson for example for a local player and try someonr like Edward chilufya upfront even for a few minutes

  3. In football we use tactics.
    All Likuena players know about Patson Daka and they went for him.
    only him alone.
    Their coach must have even told them that once you cage Patson then Zambia will not tick.
    That was the tactic.
    Use Patson to draw all the defenders and give the other bullets leeway.
    Any good coach will not substitute Patson because then you free up the defenders.
    Besides do you expect Patson to be scoring in each and every game?

  4. Don’t substitute patson Data you will lose other wise. Don’t you think that all players were on daka as a result we managed to score, just use use side wings number 7 and number 11, closing ball is very important in game

  5. Patson Daka likula, what do you see in him? He should just be on the bench in tomorrow’s game. So even at Leicester where the Nigerian Ineacho shines , Daka fails to shine, so you are saying it’s because all defenders are on Daka? He has all freedom to shine at Leicester, but he fails! Just running around with no positional sense as though he doesn’t know what his role is in the team. I repeat likula!
