    • @mwebantu you are a joke. Namibia played 2 great games, before this. Watch other countries, not just Zambians. Wait to watch Zambia vs Namibia in finals.

  18. Wonderful news that Silwimba will miss the quarter finals. Mediocre player who should be playing in divison 1. He is just a pile of muscle with no skill.

  19. Zambia has a serious weakness that happens to be the strength of almost all her opponents. Possession! Zambia looks content in playing second fiddle in this aspect of football. If Zambia loses it will because they surrendered the possession to their opponents.

  20. @Mingalato, Namibia didn’t play two great games! They scored in injury time in both games! Only the last goal was of course superb! Of late, we have made ourselves even to allow teams such as Swaziland, Botswana etc, feel comfortable playing us when they used to shake each time we were meeting them! We call this mediocrity!

  21. This was a chipante pante style, I wish Nyirenda played the other team members as a way to motivate them. Namibia and Sudan play same style, maybe it’s good that we have practised what to expect

  22. This was a bad performance by Zambia. We were just kicking the ball in front with the hope of finding a teammate.The team has no ball players like Fwayo, Chota Chama etc. Mulenga was poor today just like most of the players
