Fans react to Micho’s Chipolopolo team selection for Algeria & Zimbabwe
Chipolpolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojević has received positive reviews following his team selection for the upcoming Africa Cup qualifiers against Algeria and Zimbabwe.
With Zambia on the backfoot in the qualifiers having picked only one win and three losses in four games and standing rock bottom in Group H, the Chipolopolo are on the ropes and need to pick maximum points in the last two games if they have to stand a chance of qualifying.
Micho has turned to the big boys to rescue Zambia’s pride falling back on the old guards who he had discarded.
The ZamFoot Crew looks at how the fans have reacted to the 33 man squad announced
The selection is fine, though it has come too late. We need to see Kalaba and Sunzu, having veterans in the team will make young players work extra hard.
Much better squad than those boys who made you loose against Bostwana
Micho has not been spared of criticism. L Chilala called for his favorites to be included retorting that the gaffer lacks understanding of the game.
Micho does not understand Zambian football where is Emmanuel Banda, Mayuka, Kalaba, Edward Chilufya? Micho now we want coordnated team not experiments be serious.
Walter Brown lauded the selection stating that Micho will have a good headache
I really feel pity for our coach who will have a very tough time in selecting the best 11 from such a highly competitive squad.
However, Veteran ZamFoot Blogger Sibs summed it up well from an informed fans perspective.
This is a good team. CCC, Rally Bwalya, Kabaso and my man Nathan Sinkala and Chibwe are welcome additions. I applaud the Coach for bringing these guys back to the team.
Mayuka has been doing well but he’s only been making substitute appearances at NAPSA. With Patson D, A.Mulenga, B.Mwila, F.Sakala, Shonga, G.Lungu Sikombe, M.Phiri upfront. Please tell me who should E.Mayuka replace from the list of the players mentioned?
These two games are like Cup Finals on their own for us. This is a good team gentlemen. Lets support the Coaching Staff. If they can’t win with these guys then questions will be later. Just worried about F.Sakala I hope he is fit. He missed a few games for his team in Belgium.
What are your thoughts on the team selection?
