  1. We need reorganising at FAZ; Get Kalu out and put in true managers of the game. Then we need our boys to make it natural qualifying for continental tournaments at all stages, just like Chipolopolo does. Then fight to get to world tournaments (again of all age grougs); then such articles concerning ‘our players abroad’ will make interesting reading…just my thoughts.

  3. The biggest problem is with clubs who don’t seem to attach any importance to youth development.Clubs are no longer scouting for young talent.The situation is even worsened with the new trend to bring in foreigners in our league.We will soon become another England selecting untested players from lower division for national team duties!Players are developed by clubs and not the national association!

  5. Instead of analysing our own players perfomance, you bring in those urgly players from west africa. Why can’t we stick to what is in the artica? What benefit could it bring to Zambians for monitoring those urgly players?

    • Uglier than you mom? Which of your offspring is prettier than your mom? Birds of the same feathers……..
      We all saw the ancient players you paraded for the under 20. These miners need to retire as they were whipped by the younger looking Amajitas.

  6. mumbi,i bet you,the most ugliest player in ghana will be the most handsome celebrity in zambia..i am yet to see any good looking guy in your team ranging from u17 to,failures and shameless individual..from club to national team is a disgrace..i think you deserve 200th in the caf ranking because sao tome is worth 60th more than you do

  7. Butti why are we arguing about ugly and handsome players honestly?? Like really?? This is childish mwe. Grown men arguing about football players looks…nuff said.

  8. Kalusha is tired. He doesnt need faz anymore and he doesnt care now. He has made his money.friendly games nike deals player deals etc. He will nw be coming once in a while. Now fifa is banning Zambia also over bonneti issue…wait. Vincent mwale has been tasked to fix kalu. Remember vincent is rupiah boy…. they r back hunt him again
