Kopala fans irk FAZ as Bola House considers stripping off international matches

The Football Association of Zambia, FAZ is considering stripping Copperbelt from hosting any international fixtures.

According to the ZamFoot Crew sources at Bola house, the FAZ hierarchy is irked with the behavior of the Kopala fans.

This follows an incident at Arthur Davies Stadium on Friday.

With the Zambia Under-20 firing blanks in the second match against Malawi, the fans turned the heat on the young guns and booed them while cheering every touch by the visitors made.

“The bosses are upset and disappointed with the fans’ behavior, ” a Bola house insider revealed on Sunday.

“The boys still had about 10 minutes to go and there’s a general belief that had the fans being behind the team, the boys would have collected maximum points. They are the 12th player and at home, fans should be giving more as well,” adds the source

Despite boasting the likes Lameck Banda, Martin Njobvu, Ngosa Sunzu and Swedish based Edward Chilufya, Zambia is yet to score.

They will go into Monday’s dead rubber match against Swaziland hoping for a face server.

This is in star contrast to the free scoring Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala led side which were invincible and were scoring goals.  for fun early this year as they lifted the African Youth Championship in Lusaka.

In addition to the humiliation the Numba Mumamba coached side suffered at Arthur Davies Stadium on Friday, the Kopala fans have also taken to social media.

The boys are been labeled as ‘ Lusaka Select’ despite having the likes of Francisco Mwepu from Chambishi and Nchanga Rangers’ Chiwempala born and Bred Martin Njobvu.

While the Cosafa Cup at this level has been Zambia’s birth right, the country will have to wait for another 12 months to have a real go at the regional trophy.

    • Booing of their own players, whether they were performing badly was the most terrible act and immature reaction from those ”soccer fans”. That culture in making wont help in encouraging upcoming players. These ”fans” did not help any of those players but psychologically killed them! Soon or later, the same ‘fans’ will cry foul be cause of what the are sowing. Honestly, how does a reasonable and responsible parent boo his own son instead of speaking positively for better results? Whoever was involved and supporting such an act should check their mental lining.
