  1. As part of our quest to build a strong Chipolopolo I suggest we organize four “national” teams to compete in a tournament either at Heroes or Mwanawasa Stadium. This may help to select players on merit under pressure from fans and the press. The teams to compete during off season:
    1. Senior team coached by Beston Chambeshi
    2. Cosafa/CHAN team coached by Aggrey Chiyangi
    3. Copperbelt select coached by George Lwandamina
    4. Midlands select coached by Numba Mumamba.
