Jack Chirwa the midfield maestro

In football having a good midfield is almost always a big advantage because most battles in a match are won or lost in the midfield. As Zambia head to Morocco for CHAN, An asset in the midfield in the name of Jack Chirwa is slowly but surely imposing himself on the team.

The green Buffaloes midfielder is expected to be key in Coach Wedson Nyirenda’s quest to bring the trophy back home. Chirwa’s calmness on the ball and eye to spot where to pass and the accuracy of his final ball is easily setting apart from the rest.

On Sunday the CHAN bound squad played a practice match with division one side Circuit City FC who are coached by coach George Kapembwa and as expected the national eased passed their opponents despite them putting up a decent fight.

Chirwa netted a brace and his goals were something of beauty. Nyirenda used two different sides with Jack Chirwa starting the match alongside Kondwani Mtonga in midfield.

Enerst Mbewe and Augustine Mulenga on the wings with Simon Silwimba, Fackson Kapumbu, Ziyo Tembo and Adrian Chama making up the back four. Zesco United’s most improved player of the year award winner Lazarous Kambole partnered Friday Samu upfront with Toaster Nsabata in goal.

When it was time to change the team Chirwa stayed on the pitch with Larry Bwalya joining him while pushing Ngwenya to the wing.

He seems to have come of age and if he continues his current form at CHAN he will be a very important factor to how Zambia will perform.
