    Kalunga needs to be included for competition’s sake.

  2. Anonymous says:

    Nazo l agree with you..Kenneth Katunga has been in good form recently

  3. Kakoko From Zaire says:

    Is Shonga eligible for 23u

  4. Kamanga says:

    For competition sake can u include Charles Musonda Jr. Most people think his family have no heart for Zed but that is absolutely untrue. Send someone to his parents with good communication skills or negotiations abilities and the deal will be done. There so many Zambians who can be engaged for that task. Hope ba Kananga will go by what he promised before getting into office. He promised to bring on board former players living outside Zambia. I think a number of you would remember that.


      Let us pressurize or petition for this Young Boy and Shonga to be called up please! We must make noise even on Social media its time we put our differences aside for the sake of our Country.. Tiye Tiye Bola na Lesa!

      • Big Steve 4rm SA says:

        If we start dictating to the coach what players to call up we run the risk of the coach using that as an excuse when he fails to deliver. We can make recommendations/suggestions but we certainly should not be making noise and forcing the coaches hand. He was employed in that position because of his expertise, lets not second guess him by forcing his hand. Lets simply suggest, recommend and sit back and let the man do his job.

      • ZamFoot says:

        Shonga is not eligible

  5. Kasama Boy says:

    The danger of forcing families to allow their boys comes in when injuries happen, remember in Kasama we have an adage, ‘Tachibulwa pa mweni’.

    I am just impressed that even Company Lungu is U23, because even Shonga is.
    we need to field our strongest for the Olympics, this is when we shall start seeing the future Chipolopolo.

  6. Sibs says:

    Good team selection especially upfront. I feel Prosper Chiluya can add value to the team. We need a strong defense as well.

    J. Shonga is over age naimwe.

  7. Anonymous says:

    True shonga is over aged

  8. BYONKABYO says:

    Good team go go boys though we only have strikers and midfielders playing in Europe no defenders no goalkeepers what’s wrong??

  9. Andy DeRoche says:

    Sibs is right on. Prosper Chiluya should be included to strengthen the defense. Where is he these days? It looks like he is not back with the Bethlehem Steel side in Pennsylvania, USA — at least not yet. This is a very exciting opportunity for the young Chipolopolo to qualify for U23 Africa Cup and then hopefully the Olympics. Go Zambia!
