  1. It’s clear the players are a mediocre bunch.
    FAZ too are not really bothered about how and where the football is going.
    They should have sent an under 20 side that were hungry for success.
    It’s like everyone’s given up.
    Too me football is in decline and no longer competes with other sports for viewership. Its only the few of us who watch and follow Zed hoping a miracle is around the corner.
    The ladies though are a different story… why…??

    • Kamanga must go!!!

      Three words will turn zambia back to its Glory days.

      A businessman making profits out of zambia national team, he has made sure players of local leagues who have a bit of potential to be put in the starting xi to ensure they are sold abroad despite of good players abroad who are totally ignored or if called on the bench.

  2. It’s quite a good lesson for Zambians , When Kalu was running football, we vehemently opposed him . Kalu stated clearly that it’s best for soccer to be ran by people who know soccer. I am not campaigning for the return of kalu but let’s learn some lessons. The pending lesson pa Zed is a political lesson if we will turn to someone who ruled the nation to rule again. Good lesson to my fellow Zedian who don’t know how to appreciate

  3. I personally think the defeat of Zambia has less to do with FAZ but more to do with the selected players attitude. For argument’s sake, Zimbabwe Football Association is worse than FAZ but the boys on the field chose to do it themselves despite ZIFA mediocrity. The Zimbabwe coach has no international experience but COSAFA is where he is trying to prove himself. And I believe players need to be psyched up that putting on the national shirt means a lot. Zimbabwe had Peter Ndlovu who despite his lack of form any time would rise once in National colours. Zambia had Kalusha who would defy any odds once he put on national colours. Playing for the national teams should make someone proud and want to leave their legs on the field of play.
