  1. The Lumwana radiants boy Gozon Mutale is a quality player. We need height in our team. He was dropped from the U23. Only God knows why. We ended up meeting Tunisia and Senegal who had height advantage and strength.

  2. Can someone tell me what Fuckson Kapumbu has done to continually be snubed by coaches and yet he is one of the most consistent and experienced left back… Secondly, as a power supporter, I love our striker Patson Daka but his current form has since relegated him to the bench. What criteria are the coaches using to pick players like Patson Daka and leave out players like Moses Phiri and Luka Lungu?

  3. please nsabata should not play any game there. He has disappointed us twice, he failed us during a friendly we played against japan and he was a spentforce against south africa during under 23 rio qualifier.

  4. How much do those two chaps Chepeshi and mkandawire pay for them to feature in all teams.Chi chicken if you fail this time we will slaughter you and instead of faz firing you they will also resign it’s too much.Returning 10 failures from under 23 is a joke.we have plenty of good players but what have they done to you ba Faz for you to sideline them?Kapumbu,Luka lungu,Mudenda,Moses Phiri,Sebastian Mwansa,chipungu Musukuma,Derick Mwansa,Lawrence chungu and Julius Situmbeko.we don’t talk any how but follow our local league with Keene interest muletumfwako naifye limo!

  5. The same rubbish defenders and midfielders who failed in on-going U23 AFCON. Going no where. Nsabata should not be there. That guy allowed silly goals at U23 AFCON.

  6. I feel I can make a team from the left out locals which can easily beat this Chan selected team…

    1. Mapulanga (Nakambala) 2. T.Bwembya (Maite) 3. F.Kapumbu (Zanaco) 4. D.Mwansa (Power) 5. W. Mulenga (Nakambala) 6. S.Malambo (Arrows) 7. J.Situmbeko (Power) 8.J. Ngulube (Maite) 9.J Njobvu (Nkana) 10.C Katongo (Buffaloes) 11 M.Phiri (Zanaco).

  7. Lwandamina, i trusted you but looking at the bunch of idiots you have carried, you are out of my favor.Honestly, how can you pick 10 players from the failed team?i agree with Crespo that Luka Lungu,Moses Phiri,Chipungu Musukuma,Fackson Kapumbu,Lawrence Chungu,Billy Mutale,Julius Situmbuko,Stanly Nshimbi,Bruce Musakanya,Shadrick Malambo,Walter Bwalya and many more local players should have been included in the team.In short, there is no consistence in the selection of player at the National.To be honest and frank,who is better between Walter Bwalya and Adason Mulawo? Gentlemen, let us be serious.We have suffered enough at the hands of your poor team selections.Chikala chobe! Sitanyoko!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. We need an expatriate coach. Not these maggots who are at the helm of the national team. Dont expect anything from this useless squad. Assholes and maggots are leading our football. Nonsense.

  9. it will be another shame, sure iam tired talking same thing always, this team selection is nonsense, 10 useless under 23 failures including club bench Warmer player patson daka again. I said it, that you will see patson bounce back at the expense of good and experience players. We need to change all technical bench including kalu and his entire corrupt administration.

  10. bushe could it be that Patson and Nsabata ba miti? if this is not the case then Lwandamina is far from an eye to spot talent. didn’t Lwandamina see how Nsabata helped South Africa to bounce back? then, the bench warmer Patson Daka?????

  11. Kalusha is to blame for our early exit in all tonarments u17,u20,u23 and now chan. Chan team selection is not good.let faz technical team sit and choose good players together with the coach. We need good players and good preparations including friendlies starting now December 12. Try the partnership of kalengo and Adamson mulawo in friendlies. If it fails try another combination before we go to the tournament. Play atleast 3 international friendlies e.g Congo Dr, South Africa and any north African team.

  12. Your selection is not good at all ,just change that selection of yours,listen you Lwandamina, to select a team is not a mater of your choice or 10%,just do your job and make history, like Erve Renar in 2012.

  13. i believe Lwandamina is the one who made the selection of the U23 team and the reason for coming out in the first round. I say so because why having 10 players from the U23 team which failed us. I dont see us going anywhere at this CHAN tornament with the same players. Does it me mean in Zambia now we dont have good and quility player who can represent us well at any tornament guy. We are tried of seeing the same faces that are not even doing anything but just worsting tax payers money. Wish magufuri was the president of zambia all this nosense could have stopped by now.

  14. Nsabata is a bench warmer at zanaco, so is patson at power! its amazing how u pick players that don’t play games this s discouraging. Even luchanga is just ve potential but his effectiveness was not much in some games at AFCON u23.

  15. To tell u guyz this is not our year 2015, let’s c what 2016 will bring. Chan will give us the direction of zambian football.

  17. dear Chicken,
    kind regards to you. kindly explain to me the omissions of Julius Stumbeko, Bruce Musakanya, Walter Bwalya and Fackson kapumbu. I further demand an explanation on the inclusion of Toaster Nsabata and Patson Daka.
    yours faithfully,
    tax payer.

    Nb:faz is broke because of player selection like the one you have made. who can inject their money for that list?

  18. Its lwandamina who is useless. He doesn’t know how to choose or select players who can bring results for Zambia. C katongo can play in chan even as a super sub. You can compare c katongo with some of you players in your team you picked.

  19. at times team selection is not about player’s performance but a system which is being used. the inclusion of patson daka and ten under 23 should not come to you as a surprise.this boys they have future.they graduated from under 20 into under 23 and today they are now with senior team.this how the team that won afcon was prepared.chan its a platform given to young stars to show case their team its just as good as cosafa.lets not demand result now. we need to prepare all raw materials in future we will the fruits.players like fuckson is old and has no ambitions to go foward.he got the needed international caps but he failed to secure a professional club.

  20. Zim bullets I don’t agree with you. You watch how teams at chan will bring their local best players. Compare with your academy players you will take at chan. Let us take our best local players. Mind you losing is very painful just like failing an exam. Surely C Katongo can add value to our local team. Katebe is also eligible to play. Its better we take our best players and perform better.

  21. Chipeshi and Mkandawire failed at U23 level and we think they can play for the Senior team? Yaba!! We do not have a team that can play in W.C qualifiers.

  22. @ Zim Bullet…….Selection of players for the Chan should be taken seriously. Kalu and his minions are trying to sell junior players to foreigh clubs,and vey unsuccessful at that. Patson Daka is currently unfit to play for any team, let aline to go for trials in Europe. No wonder he has flopped! Th boy has not played a serious competitive game in 3 months. how has Lwandamina assessed the boy.
    My advise to Chicken is replace Kakoma with Saith Sakala and Patson Daka with Walter Bwalya.

  23. Honourable mr Lwandamina,POINT of order; DOES Patson daka deserve a place even in that provisional team for CHAN games ? What is wrong with Steven Kabamba , Martin Phiri, Eric Chibuye and Steward Chikadiwa etc sure ?

  24. The losing team. Chris k impressed me in the barclays cup.can he fail to play.Can he fail to play and lead the Chan team?to be considered: Isaac Chansa,Joseph Musonda and Makundika from Nkwazi also drop Toastee and call Mapulanga of Nakambala

  25. Call katongo we want results at chan. Why are you dumping c katongo as if he is completely finished? He is still useful and he is a good player. Name him in you provissional team and let him prove appoint.
