  14. Chris Botha

    Altitude beats skill and experience, Talent is good but talent alone does not win games, hard work is good but it is worthless without team work and discipline.
    whether with Fwayo or without him Chipolopolo is bigger than any individual player, team work is good. much more discipline is important.
    Fwayo must learn from the likes of Jacob Mulenga, that player is well disciplined, he is a role model.


    Good selection and we expect Sakala,daka,shonga,chisamba and enock to start.

  16. Napatali
