Micho set to recall Sunzu for Algeria, Zimbabwe clashes

Zambia national team head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic is set to recall defender Stophila Sunzu ahead of the two crucial back-to-back qualifiers for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations tournament.

Sunzu last played for Chipolopolo on November 14th, 2019 in the humiliating 5-0 loss to the Desert Foxes of Alegria away at the
Mustapha Tchaker Stadium in Blida.

With Zambia in a very difficult situation with only one win from four games, three points, and bottom of the table and only an outside chance of qualifying to the tournament, Micho may be forced to look to the Chinese based defensive kingpin for experience and guidance, the ZamFoot Crew understands.

Sunzu is likely to partner TP Mazembe defender Tandi Mwap,e in the heart of defense when Zambia hosts group H leaders Algeria and travels to Harare for their final match of the qualification tournament.

Zambia hosts Algeria on 25th March at the National Heroes Stadium before traveling to face the Warriors of Zimbabwe four days later.

  1. Kopala says:

    Kabaso Chongo is also required plus Nathan in midfield because if you look at the current options i would rather go for the old guard looking at how the young guns floundred at the CHAN and the last two qualifiers

  2. Anonymous says:

    Misheck can also do better. A food for thought

  3. We need kabaso also to strengthen defence pliz here our cry micho football iz our food here in zambia

  4. St Brian says:

    CCC and Larry in the midfield and we are good to go

  5. Kanyanta Mporokoso says:

    Sunzu despite years of experience, lacks self confidence when under pressure. he has cost us crucial games quite a few times. Thank God he scored that decisive goal at CAF 2012. Sinkala lacks creativity as mid fielder. How is Cleotus Chama? Kalaba?

  6. Dongo says:

    Another sunzu/Kabaso pairing would be suicidal

  7. Foster says:

    Coach Micho thanks alot that you have called back Sunzu but please a word of ADVISE.Your best eleven should be

    Mweene,Tandi Mwape,Sunzu,Kabaso Chongo,Mwepu,Chisambadinho,Fashion, Augustine Mulenga,Patson Daka,Cletus Chota Chama .
    Hey coach these guys are good for your first eleven,but NOW you shuffle them to you plan,dont just put ci player because is his energy levels are high but no brains.

  8. Collins says:

    Please guys let’s us bring back 2012 team

  9. Mujege says:

    It’s a wrong move by Micho. Let him treat the 2 games as preparatory matches for world cup qualifiers. We are already out of contention for the Africa Cup so why stick with the old guards. We need to continue with the rebuilding process.

  10. Mwansa kanyele says:

    Ba mwinsho, consult properly before summoning some players at national team.
    Sunzu is unheard of as of late…. and you contemplate of calling him?
    Let’s wait and see!!!!!!!!!twalya cikanda ya kooca.

  11. It’s good to call all experience play like kalaba daka mwepu triple c Kennedy mwene of experience in go keper

  12. Sam says:

    Bring kabaso chongo for defence if you want to qualify Zambia

  13. Sido says:

    That’s the right move,however kabaso chongo should be considered as number two.

  14. Tony mash says:

    Without kabaso Zambia won’t proceede. The coach hate him, this will be curse. All coaches who fight players will never progress ..

  15. Tony mash says:

    Without kabaso forget about qualifying. All coaches who fight player progress

  16. Malack Nyirenda says:

    Kabaso, sunzu,CCC and goalkeeper mwenye we need these players if we want to qualify

  17. Malack Nyirenda says:

    Kabaso, sunzu,CCC and goalkeeper mwenye we need these players if we want to qualify

  18. Malaka says:

    Sorry for this coach. He has no options apart from a pool of players without skill and talent. Beating Algeria and Zimbabwe is such a tall order

  19. Michoout says:

    Micho does not really believe in Zambia. He is just here for the salary. He has idea how good Zambia can be and how they should be played. He is used to individual play. Zambia has never been an individual game but work best as a team. Those crossed from the centre never result in meaningful attacks.

  20. Lieutenant says:

    Advice to Micho and the entire Technical team. If Zambia has to come out of its slumber and achieve results in order to Qualify, much is needed to be done. Knowing you are at the bottom of the group and need points. You have to go with all guns blazing .

    You need to go for goals in order to correct maximum points. Yes you also need to sharpen your defence. But there is nothing to defend for , you are already at the bottom and need points to go up. Therefore,I suggest you go for the Striking Force to find Goals. That demolishing 5-0 tells us talks of poor defence and Poor Front line. More goals conceded and No Goals scored.
    Find guys can bite back against old rivals in terms of Goals and find good guys that can defend.

  21. chileshe bwembya says:

    Sure short mèmory. The same old players are the ones that made zambia to loose to zimbabwe at home and suffer a 5-0 bashing at the hands of algeria in the first games. And the same old players failed to qualify to the last two afcon editions. But you are still crying for them.

  22. Cornelious says:

    We need Kabaso and kalaba for us to qualify…

  23. Adon simbeye says:

    Sunzu is best to work with chongo please don’t forget him is still there he can do it please please boss sunzu is needed no matter what to stabilize the game
