  1. Let’s not be taken by this rating! We are aware Caf always favours the West and North Africans . That’s why they will never select a Southern African player for African Player of the Year or any accolades

  2. Ba Dave included where? Daka’s ratings in the whole qualifiers did not go above 5. Daka likula, the sooner Grant realizes that the better for the team. Can you compare or equate Daka to the Nigerian top man Osimane? He’s very far off. Grant has to find a very good striker between now and January, otherwise Zambia will not go beyond the group stage because every team that has qualified is very good, name it, Gambia, Angola, Tanzania, Mali, Mauritania! They are a very strong teams!
