    So we have to emerge group winners in group B to qualify for the last and final round. Going by our pedigree, our biggest challenge in the group should be Tunisia but then again going by recent form Equatorial Guinea will still feel they have a big chance of getting points from us. Tunisia have world cup experience having been to the show piece a total of five times. Right now we don’t have a coach. I very much doubt we have scouts who are busy with player identification for the national team so that they can assist the new coach when he comes. We will most probably fall into the same old system of coaches advising the new coach on player selection and we all know what our local coaches do when it coms to that. What we do have is talent. We have never been short on that. We can only hope Kamanga’s FAZ can be a bit more focused. And also we have ministers interfering in football, we can only hope people would just stick to their lanes.

    All the best to the lads. Lets get a maximum 9 points from all our home games and push for some results away.

    My take is this a fair draw. Play every game like it’s a Cup Final. Our biggest challenge like Big Steve says is we don’t have a Coach and we don’t even know who is coming in as Coach.
    We start badly and try to recover when its too late.
    The Football Association (FAZ) for me has let us down so many times. Kmanga and his crew are just taking chances at Football House.

    Just fire kamanga and his administration if you keep kamanga forget about afcon and world cup. The selection of players for local coaches is very pathetic.
