  1. This team seems to be beaming with talent. My only concern is the Coach. He has showed that he can’t “Tika” at International level. Zanaco with all the talent failing to beat a team from Swaziland and the U20 1st Round Cosafa exit. Can’t remember the U20 exiting in the 1st Round of COSAFA. He made wrong history.

    ZANACO year after year fail to progress to the group stage of Continental Club soccer.
