  3. That’s the only way to go for these kids. Get into the lower level leagues and learn to be professionals and how to play football at a higher level that they are used to. This is the only way forward for our football nation otherwise we will be subjected to and saddled with Isaac Chansa, Chris Katongo et al who are past their prime even though the continuously desire to be part of the mix. They did their part for Zambian football and they will forever live on Zambian football lore BUT ITS TIME TO BREAK THE SHACKLES AND MOVE ON FROM THESE MEN.

    This young man and his other friend have provided the best news thus far in 2016 from a football perspective. October 2016 will be monumental in our football, we need to have the best players available when the daunting task of WC qualifiers start. We already know which players have been seeing regular football at the clubs and which players have not. We need a true coach at the helm as well…….PLEASE DO NOT START THE CACOPHONY OF Lwandamina BECAUSE THE MAN IS NOT AT THE LEVEL. They display at the just ended(for us anyway) CHAN was a disaster, please do not tell me about not conceding goals, doing our best yada yada yada. We are currently mired in mediocrity the sooner we realize it the better off we are. We have the tools, but the men/women chosen to wield these tools are not at the level. The truth is the truth and not an offense.

    Carpe Diem Young Moses, you as well young Lineker, the sky is the limit…….grab the bull by its horns and rumble young man rumble!!!!!!

  4. Good luck, Moses. It’s more than just’s a livelihood… as in career opportunity.
    Since Charly Musonda moved to Real Betis..I regularly check their website as I don’t want to miss anything on this soccer prodigy’s development and I was pleasantly surprised to hear him speak in Spanish! Videos of his first training sessions speak volumes….Makes Iniesta look very ordinary!

  5. Wishing Moses Phiri luck in Portugal, same with Mwikisa. I hope this will translate to the National team, but first thing is first. Work hard and establish yourself.

  6. Chicken left the boy & took Patson DAKA what a shame. And u call him a good coach! I’ve just realized one thing.Let me say sorry to a Chicken for my criticism,I forgot that a Chicken is short. So it’s difficult to c from afar,that’s why it couldn’t c Phiri coz he was very far from it.

    • i just wander,whiles the likes of punch,positive thinking,rok,uncle bobs are churning out thought-provoking views on the forward march of their country’s football,you find low thinkers like him advertising and soiling himself with crass ineptitude and low IQ. He never grows up and probably will never ever……

  8. Its been a long time, but this boy looks like the one i kicked ball with at a ground in Chawama compound. Good for our soccer and good luck to him.
