    A very poor display by Zambia in the first half without a shot on goal despite enjoying lots of possession in the half.

  55. Anonymous says:

    Please am asking updates zambia vs botswana

  56. Sibs says:

    Micho go where you came we don’t you how can change the team

  58. Sibs says:

    Just saw the Highlights. Our 2 Central defenders were at sixes and sevens for that Goal by Botswana.
    We need to be tight at the back and lets try to be creative. F.Sankala needs to go on the wing and we bring a striker. I wish M.Musonda was in the team with PD20 injured.
    Lets Gooo Zambia….

    This is terrible. Zambia why???

  122. Chifwa sylvester chilambwe says:

    8th minute strike was enough to bury us, so much for the love. Had it been a club, I’d have switched onto a different one.

  123. Anonymous says:

    It’s quite disheartening how zambia has has dropped so low to teams like bostwana, namibia and zimbabwe… honestly how can we be struggling to beat these teams??what has gone wrong kanshi??..micho has assembled a team which for me is not ready to qualify to Africa cup of nations and world cup respectively…the team is only ready to participate in CHAN….

  124. Nervious says:

    We still needed some old players likes of kalaba,sink ala, sunzu,mweene and chisamba lungu. We missed it mulenga and shonga should have started to tire up the tswana and bring sakala in the second half to the tired defenders.

  125. Maxwell Mutesya says:

    To spice the national team players must be picked from all corners of Zambia. Besides, these boys panick as they play because of over promising them of receiving huge sums of money for an away win or draw. Conceding a goal 8 minutes before the final whistle tells the whole story.

  126. Anonymous says:

    There’s no way we can win the games whereby all experienced players are left out and picking on small boys who can not even play with experienced players. Leaving mbesuma, mweene, sunzu, kalaba, chama,kabaso, and sinkala was a very big mistake. The coach his advisers are the one’s to blame.insoni ebuntu.

    Nice nice result,the most successful FAZ President ever,Mr Andrew Kamanga enroute to not only qualifying Zambia three on the trot but also winning the afcon three consecutive times ..Weldone Andrew,Mr Integrity with success.

  131. FBL says:

    Zambia is doing very very well under Mr Andrew Kamanga and his hard working executive.He will go and represent the country next year in the CAF Exco meeting just before the tournament which the rest of the country will watch on TV…….Boss Kamanga it’s nice to ve u at Football House,Long Live Andrew Kamanga.

  132. Bloody Zambian says:

    A painful loss a disappointing situation that Zambia might not qualify for afcon for the third time in a row, but still maybe let’s seriously rebuild the team

  133. Hillz zambia says:

    But zoona imwee

  134. Samson says:

    Why do we always experiment?our coach is not capable of making a good team.what did Kabaso Chongo do in Kenya which lead to his dismissal?Why do we leave good experienced players?Look at our freinds,for example,ba Ghana,Algerial,Nigerial and some other countries,they maintain good old players who are able to make their countries proud.
