  1. And then when they come back, Kalusha’s FAZ will demoralize these young boys by not paying them a cent. This administration should put its house in order, before they completely kill Zambian football

  2. Hahahahaha… Yes we lost… But nothing do us..though painful but this is football anything can happen in the game of soccer..

    We lost the 2013 u-17 cup to but went on to win the world cup. So what are you guys saying. Ivory coast defeated us back then in 2013 but when it matters most(world cup) they were embarrassed.

    And for records Nigeria as only won the africa u-17 championship 2 times but world cup 4 times.
    African cup—2 times
    World cup—–4 times

    All we have to do is go back learn from our mistakes and go to the world cup to do what we know how to do best.
    More scout are in the world cup and a good place to market the players.

    • U HINK SO MR MUMBI ? WELL, LETS WAIT AND SEE WAT WILL HAPPEN ON THAT DAY

      GHANA SATELITES BEAT AZERBAIJAN 2 GOALS TO ONE YESTERDAY IN TURKEY WHERE THE SATELITES ARE CAMPING SATURDAY THE SATELITES WILL MEET U20 TURKEY ON SATURDAY..

  3. Hey!Speed winger Austin Muwowo is not in the team?
    He was busy helping the team qalify while Mine Police were fight relegation and has been ignored.
    Ok Nkana wil need him to terrorise Red Arrows @icilata on 14th March,season opener.

  4. i am beginning to understand that empty noise making is a common trait among southern africans.mumbi and paradox made noise before the afcon and the u17 championship respectively but the results was first round exist.continue dreaming and ranting since that is the only thing you are good at.now you are mocking nigeria despite of thrashing you and sending you back home and dimming your wc dream.what sort of reasoning is this?
    as you dream,we stay awake to implement them

  5. I have more faith in Hector Chilombo and his lads. He took over NAPSA that was relegation threatened and made it a tittle chasing team. Took over U20 from Chicken and convincingly qualified for the Championship. He toot asecond string under 20 to Zimbabwe and minted gold. For me, he is my coach of the year 2014, not taking away anything from Chicken Lwandamina who took over an already strong team ZESCO who were league runners up and made them to win – they almost one it even without him in the other season when Nkana won. A good coach uses what he has and tactically transforms it into a marvel to watch. Let the games begin, if Zambia doesnt grab the title, we will definitely qualify for the world cup. GO ZAMBIA, GO CHILOMBO. By the way, it appears Eastern province is producing great strikers. All the above are from Eastern, three quaters of the team is from Eastern POWER.

  6. The selection is marred by affiliations and corrruption. The players are either indirectly managed by Jere and K-Stars, Lee Kawanu or any other of their contacts. The likes of Langson, Chinyama who have not had game time at their clubs have been selected ahead of Godfrey , Muwowo ..who parent clubs would not allow fake agents to milk them…Most of these are being marketed for individual benefits…Just like the under 17 …Better to Support Ghana and SA where talent is managed honestly…

  7. I mean we should not rush the boy into U20/23. He is too young unless we are age cheating on this boy.
    @ Naked goal! pali bola nomba pa Eastern hence 11 players. Intact one has been left out by mistake, Fashion Sakala. of Nchanga Rangers fc.
