Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda on Saturday gave international debuts to Power Dynamos duo of goalkeeper Allan Chibwe and Lawrence Chungu in the international friendly match Zambia lost to Zimbabwe.

Wada Wada played the Zanaco central defense pairing of George Chilufya and Ziyo Tembo and he played with the handbrake on in the midfield starting the Zesco United defensive midfield pairing of Misheck Chaila and Kondwani Mtonga together with veteran Isaac Chansa.

Fwayo Tembo, Ronald ‘Sate Sate’ Kampamba and Charles Zulu completedo the three man attack.

  1. Kalengo stoped scoring a long time ago. Combined with Sate Sate u hv the bluntest frontline ever. lets move Walter Bwalya?! He is Zambian isnt he?

  2. I Think Mr Coach, Give Chance To The Man Of The Moment For Nkana Water Bwalya! The Guy A Goal Poacher, Pliz Give Him A Chance In The Nation Team.

  3. Is water bwalya a Zambian? I understand one of his parents is from DRC and he was brought up there zamfoot confirm. Is he eligible to play for Zambia bz he is the target for mazembe and once he is gone that is the end

  4. Give Walter Bealya a run in the next game against the Cranes plz ….After all it ‘s just a practice match as Rena would put it. Let us see what our top scorer in our local league can do.

  5. Kalengo is injured, and Mbesuma had a knock over the weekend, question is, which strikers are we taking to Cameroun???Not that Sate Sate I guess

  6. Too much sleeping pa Zambia. Can the responsible authority process the papers for Walter Bwalya so he can be eligible to play for Chipolopolo. Otherwise the Leopards of Congo are gonna snatch him.

  7. Congrats to all the Zambian players at TP for another medal for their cabinets and also to Nkausu for qualification to the Telkom semi-finals with his team Free state stars. He actually had a good game against Chiefs.

    So we played to defensive midfielders, a box to box midfielder and a three man attack and still had attack impotence….. now that is a bit worrying. You would think with a defensive midfield pairing of Chaila and Mtonga in front of a four man defense it would be very difficult for anything to penetrate right through to the goal keeper. Lets hope the coach gets things right before the game against Cameroon.

  8. Do you remember Papa Kamwashi from Kabwe Warriors? He was Congolese. But faz then played their cards right and he played for our national team.Gilbert Mukumbo as well. We wasted time saying he’s a Congolese and came to use him at the last minute(old age).He made an impact but it was too late.

We wasted time saying he’s a Congolese and came to use him at the last minute(old age).He made an impact but it was too late.Look at E.Guinea, the team has players born from other countries.

    • PIKU, Kamwashi played for Zambia then disappeared from his club only to reappear in the Congo playing some other Congolese club. Yes I remember Kamwashi, he played against SA in a friendly that ended with a 1-1 draw.

      Lets not even use Eq Guinea as an example. That team is full of mercenaries who only after money. In fact there was a time when there was great division in the team because of all the foreign players getting handed citizenship to include controversy handled at the FIFA level.

      We need to be prudent about our approach. I recall FAZ even tried offering Stephen kabamba citizenship during HR’s days.

  10. I Think Its High Time That We Also Start Making Use Of The Due Citizenship In Football Now Coz We Ar Mising Out Talent In Our Game. Pliz Ba Faz These Ar Issues Which Should B Workd On Urgently Otherwise U Dont Hav Only To B Taking Kalusha S’Issues Wth Fifa Only No! Show Us That U Ar A Listening Governing Board In Football Unlike The Previous One.

  11. chipolopolo boys are becoming indiscipline insulting one another during de match. shuold de FAZ look in all angles interms of choosing players even in rural areas ,we are tired of these old players.only few showing comiment like kalaba. plz don’t look at de back of Jerseys but look at what someone is offering in de pitch is vital. don’t wast gvt moner poseniko amano ba muntu we are tired of loosing.

  12. Pliz consider duo citizenship in our team we dont hav quality in our team our players are finished…include de likes of walter bwalya to our team…y are u so deaf chi faz and your local coach
