    Do not embarrass the country as the seniors did on Sunday.

  2. Slim says:

    The entire Zambian super league and division1 could only contribute 4 players to the Africa under 17 squad for the competition slated for Morocco. This tells us all the top teams do not have developmental sides. We should not be suprised our foot ball is not improving at all. It’s a shame. Organise a practice match against under17 players from super league teams to face the junior Chipos and see the outcome. We will have the same outcome as happened with the senior Chipos! New players will be identified.

    Well articulated Slim I concur with you
