  1. otherwise we felt the presence of Ronaldinho each time he touched the ball…if u look at the game properly …I think ba zambia 2012 are finished coz how can they win 3 when most of our players are still playing and they are below age whilst barcer players were too old and they were atleast passing the ball nicely what if they played bena etoo, iniesta , yaya , xavi, e.t.c their agemates….it would have been chaos

  2. Ooho iwee what more , if we had lost the game ,what would you say ? The starndard of play sure zambia was amazing in all departtments

  3. The game was not balanced. Barca brought old legends we used players who are active. Not balanced. And our so called active players are indeed planks

  4. Overall this was a great occasion for the nation as a whole. the only taint to this event was FAZ’s pettiness. It was great to see the who stadium enjoying themselves.
