How many time to the drawing board? – President Lungu

With a crestfallen face, the head of state President Edger C Lungu said the Chipolopolo boys will have to go back to the drawing board once again following a 1-0 loss to Mozambique, ending their hopes of qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of the nations.

The number one Chipolopolo fan however wondered how many times the national team will have to go back to the drawing board.

A somber President Lungu was speaking to the State owned ZNBC shortly after Chipolopolo loss.

He said he was going to leave everything into the hands of experts.

“Oh yeah, sad that we have lost. We have to go back to the drawing board, but the question is how many times?”he asked.

“I hope they have the sprit to continue. But they have really shattered the expectations of most Zambians. We were all glued to Mozambique, trying to see if they have got something.

“But let’s leave everything into the hands of the technicians, the team, management and FAZ.”

    I ask myself the same question every time we have a new administration running the country and they flop.

    Those two players lubambo musonda and and Emanuel banda messed up the game.
    The coach should have done those substitutions earlier.

    • Lukanga Kafusha Justice says:

      Why did Emanuel Banda make the team when he is not even a regular at his club. I was shocked when I read he had been called to the senior squad

      Anyway we messed up when we lost at home to Mozambique, that is where we lost it

      The way forward is to start using the under20 players that played at the world cup. All players above the age of 28 should be cleared from the squad, as we look to the future

      My opinion

      • Kutumba Sikota says:

        You are here asking why Emmanuel banda was called up to the team and then you go on to say we should call only those u20 players. What is it that you actually want? Zambians you make me wonder. Smh

    How many times is he going to live out best players like karaba? You can’t carry out experiments in a crucial match… I think Renard was one of the best coaches Zambia has ever had!

    Let us get back to what used to be done when selecting players for the national team. Let the current national team players be the ‘The All Stars’ the the ‘Rest’ should come from the selection to be proposed by the public through the media. Times / Daily Mail / Daily Nation and the like. The FAZ admin. should find a date and venue for national team select. This must be home and away. Am sure, by so doing we shall come up with a very strong chipolopolo not these (insanse). This is what used to be when we had the type of Ante Buselic in those days. The players were not picked by names or face, it was by merit, quality not quantity. This cannot bring biasness. The selection of players should start from division 1. We have good players within who plays better than those abroad. Finally if the selected player are picked, they should be handed over to whoever the coach shall be and let the coach start from there.
