  6. Zambian football is lacking creativity. Same style at all levels, U17, U20 and senior level. We fail to use mid fielders and wingers to unlock opponents’ defence. Always sending long balls from the back doesn’t work for our football. Herve Renard used wings and mid field to unlock opponents, even Dario Bonnetti was good at unlocking defenses. But our local coaches can’t think of anything apart from dununa kind of football. The only local coach who tries to use mid fielders and wingers is Beston Chambeshi, but his defensive tactics are pathetic.

    89′ CDA 0 – 1 Zesco

    Good defending by Silwimba as he shields the ball into touch for a goal kick under pressure

  23. Like the National Team we always fail to hold on to leads! “Game over hold on the ball!” At least Renard would shout to the players on the touch line! Faltering in the last minute! What a shame!

  24. Pathetic soo pathetic and that ref first gives five Jacob does stupid delaying tactics for two minutes and they capitalize on that am hate soo hate

  25. That chap Kapumbu is the weak link in that squad. That injured # 11 was running circles around him from the first game but the coaching staff & himself didn’t take time to study that winger.

  26. BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD:

    ● U. 17 Cosafa team kicked out despite being defending champions;

    ■ U. 20 Afcon knocked out!Failing to defend a trophy as defending champions;

    In both cases COACHES & TECHNICAL BENCH failed their lads.

    As if the above isn’t enough am reminded
    of how MOZAMBIQUE got 3 points while we watched them.

    NOW we are SHOCKED by the lack of technical knowledge of CHICKEN GEORGE & his technical staff! Surely how can a coach not instruct his team to play like they had a prescious lead with 3 huge points! POOR MENTALITY NO FIGHTING SPIRIT. TOO CASUAL ON THE BALL, LEAVING THE OPPOSITION WITH SO MUCH SPACE ON THE BALL. Failure to close in on the oposition their downfall.

    ☆ NEXT ON THE FOOTBALLING MENU is a game against Namibia. Unfortunately, they might follow suite.
