  1. This evening all roads lead to Lobatse to see the young Chipolopolo in action against a depleted young Zebras who have their dependable players shifted to the the senior team like the Patson Daka style.The Chipolopolo clad fans have already started showing off their support in Gaborone shopping malls as they shop around before travelling en mass to lobatse.The Zambian embassy in Gaborone have organised a bus to send supporters to lobatse. I will be reporting direct from lobatse come 19 30 hours today. good lucky Zambia.

  2. The Young Zebras are in for a hiding after they sacked their coach Pio Paul. Dry Vinkubala will be there in Lobatse with Frank Nonde on his side to cheer the boys. Ba Frank, please as usual, come in time for the game.

  6. There we go again Zambia as usual…we need God’s help wit our national teams lyonse ma draw nokulusa sure!!!!

  7. Very poor result how can draw with a weak team like Botswana . There is no heroism in stupidity . This useless coach dropped players from the team for reporting late to camp. What hav you achieved. Poor results . All zambian coaches makes obvious blunders .

  8. Shadreck musonda was denied the opportunity to show case his talent and to represent his country at all levels . What kind of selection criteria which is being used by these mediocre coaches . He has join kola and co who are viewed as misfit by these coaches .

    Speculation linking Herve Renard with the Lille job took on new significance after he left his role with Ivory Coast on Friday.

    Herve Renard has left his position as Ivory Coast coach as speculation mounts that he will succeed Rene Girard at Lille.

    “At the time when I decided to leave…I wanted to thank from the bottom of the heart all the people who have [played a role in] the victory of the Africa Cup of Nations last February,” the 46-year-old said in a statement.

    Renard guided Ivory Coast to the Africa Cup of Nations title this year and had 18 months remaining on his deal.

    It was announced this week that Girard will leave Lille at the end of the Ligue 1 season, but Renard gave no hint over his future as he offered an emotional farewell to Ivory Coast.

    “Thank you to the fervour of an entire people who waited for 23 years [for] a coronation in the most beautiful competitions of the continent Africa,” Renard said. “The images of our return home, a few hours after our success against Ghana, will remain engraved forever in my head.”
