  1. With proper foresight and planning Chipolopolo will emerge leader in this group as the teams in this group are 100% beatable by Chipolopolo. We must not depend on the same players who brought us glory what I mean is some may be sold to other leagues and may remain clueless. Kalengo might go to another league maybe even Luchanga, let us identify some replacement for these guys. We must stop taking any competition casually as is the case all the times. All the best Chipolopolo!!!!!!

  2. Chris katongo should play yes. But will Winston kalengo be in the ZPL. Even at 30 I see him being bought by a top team in africa like TP mazembe or a small club in europe.

    • That’s true I also see Kalengo being bought as you have said coz He has shown some consistence, strength, speed and quality in front of the goal. Chris should also play yes as He has some drive and he is a fighter.

  3. fair group we jst need 2 prepare well, yes we can with addition of same players. Wat i c is players lik munthali, winstone, charles zulu nd luchanga might not be with us next year

  4. If TP mazembe come calling kalengo should go there or any big team in sa but not sundowns. No zambian should ever join sundowns. In fact Mweene must leave

  5. Uganda is our biggest threat because of being called under dogs Togo fall victim ups to George for calling players with match fitness not bench warmers eg.fwayo c katongo j musonda etc mfune and co plays week in week out fit to play 90 minutes plus good lack Zambia

  6. Oooh please people are we ever going to move forward not the CKs,j Muzo ati even Clifford should be given a chance what are you smoking?there alot of young and vibrant players take some time to also watch local games on supersport.

  7. The draws are fair looking at other groups with good preparations we can win this cup as for winstone kalengo he should leave after the chan tournment not before chan because we need him lead our attack at chan

  8. People at zesco united should advise kalengo very well he should not join sundowns because they will just finish him.please kalengo I beg you in the name of God don’t join sundown they will finish you my brother look at kennedy mweene and mukuka mulenga they form has gone down please money is not every thing

  9. thats not to say the whole squad must be old. but cris will add expirience to the team. lets give him one more lap. daniel cousin played for gabon in the last chan

  10. The draw is just fine. We should even be able to top this group.
    If these rumours I hear of Kalengo being hunted by Sundowns are true, then it’s bad news. Kalengo should NOT even think of joining Mamelodi Sundowns. That club is not good. You’ve to be an excellent player and in good books with Coach Pitso Mosimane for you to command first team status.

  11. Let him go and join sundowns if he is good he will play regularly.. That will a good move. Lets encourage players to work hard..

  12. Even if you are a good play at sundown its very difficult at be a starter at look at tht zimbabwe strike mushkwe or some things and that nigerian guy these are good players but they are not registered. so sundown is not a good club

  13. Remember HH, mukuka and now mweene. These are top footballer finished by sundown. Worse for the young talent in the name of mukuka. His once promising football will end like that of Cliford… I hate to remember this.

  14. All groups are fairly balanced. The team that wants it most will get it. As for Zambia i will repeat the same mantra…..early and serious preparations. Play quality opposition.

  15. Kalengo shouldn’t be in a hurry to leave Zesco….One good season isnt enough. Remember Luka Lungu who left for TP Mazembe and failed to reproduce the same form he had shown at Powers the previous season. The last time I heard about him TP had sent him Don Bosco club…I don’t even know where he is now. Just like there are one-song bands, here are also one-season players!

  16. It is good to patispet in this big competition,but zambia we have to train hard for us to go and get some good result,we can talk whatever we can talk but if we don’t train hard and make a good line up we can be nothing…

  17. @Zim Bullet Kalango will make the biggest mistake of his life if he joins Sundowns. I can give you a list of close to 20 players who have had their careers run down or almost run down at Sundowns. Do you know that at the moment Kennedy Mweene is the 3rd choice Goalkeeper at Sundowns? The other two guys for me are not better than Kennedy.
    It will be difficult for Kalengo to break into the Sundowns 11. Their Coach is also quiet difficult to win over.
    Teams like Pirates, Chiefs, Celtics, Supersport… are good at building players.

  18. @ paradox Namibians like Ghanaians are think with their mouths. Real footballers(CHIPOLOPOLO) are like good drivers,they think with their feet.
    I cant remember anything remarkable the KANALELO boys are good at, maybe that’s why the other coach left them.

    As for the dark-black stars they are good at demanding bonuses from their govmnt before the match. If I were their president I would put them in jail for embersalment should they lose.
    They are not even going for the CHAN both them ( NaMIBIA and Ghana),minnows!!!!
    GO ZAMBIA GO!!!!!!!!!!
