Wedson Nyirenda Inspires Zambia’s World Cup Dream Back To Life

Zambia coach Wedson Nyirenda has posted a historic feat inspiring Chipolopolo to a first 100% record over Algeria in the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Striker Patson Daka’s 66th minute goal confirmed Zambia’s back-to-back wins over Algeria in Group B of the qualifiers.

Zambia, who beat Algeria 3-1 on Saturday, now need victory in Nigeria on October 7 and in Lusaka against Cameroon to seal a spot for a place at the Russia World Cup.

Nigeria lead Group B with 10 points while Zambia is in second place on seven points with Cameroon in third on three points while Algeria occupy the bottom place with a single point.

It’s the first time Zambia has defeated Algeria over two legs in a World Cup qualifying series.

  67. Chipolopolo

    Nice game it was. That Alex Ngonga guy should hit the bench come next game

  68. Eneya

    It was a good game but Ngonga don’t use him

  69. Prince

    We are proud of you guys. But Ng’onga is not striker it’s better you put him Ku defence coz he played like a defender. He missed three chances.we would have to win 3_0.so pliez make another good team who will play against Nigeria. Congratulations guys .Go Zambia Go!2018 Zambia Ku world cup.God Bless.

  70. Busola

    Good game Zambian Chipolopolo.WARNING!! The SUPER EAGLES ARE VERY SHARP ND ARE READY FOR THE KILL IN UYO,NIGERIA. Zambians…pls keep dreaming your dream of World Cup qualification is certainly not now..may be in 2056 by God’s grace Amen Hallelujah .

  71. Munyeme

    Well done boys,you ve made our soccer loving nation proud… Ve never been so confident before but now cn see light at the end of the tunnel..Nija you are next

  72. Nchimunya

    When people said bring under 20 boys they knew what they were talking about. Don’t bring bena kalaba use those boys fuse them in they will qualify am telling you Mr coach

  73. Fredson Lambwe

    The Tupolopolo have made us proud showing the senior Chipolopolo how 2 go about it. Now Wada include Rainford Kalaba in forth coming game against Nigeria. We want a good showdown in Uyo. Take note; that must win game must be regarded as a Semi-final by the players. we are behind you boys. Go! Zambia Go!

  74. Mufana

    Peter Nyirongo
    Peter Nyirongo Congrats FAZ and the Boys, I was one of those who thought that the under 20 should remain in the under 20 team and now was proven wrong. Therefore I would like to urge FAZ and the technical bench in particular that the Nigeria game preparations should start now! you or the technical bench need to access all the prayers from the under 20 and senior team and pick those who can withstand the pressure that will be there in Nigeria. This will be our final throw of the dice. we need to prepare now. It will be a do or die encounter and I am sure Nigeria will throw everything at us and we should also do the same.

  75. cornfred sichuunga milimo

    masimpe mbalombwana aba

  76. Khaygee

    Well done chipolopolo…kudos to these youngsters for this spectacular away win but anyone who thinks these guys have what it takes to beat the almighty soaring super eagles at home will keep fantasizing until the super eagles get to the semis at the worldcup come 2018…once again,kudos to chipolopolo for at least raising a national hope for qualification that will certainly be dashed come October when the high flying eagles of Nigeria soar high over the chipolopolo “chickens” of Zambia by 5goals to nil…Proud of u Zambia for d hope rising…

  77. donald

    U ar great guys continue with same coordinatio

  82. Prince Mande

    Congratulations boys, well done. The infussion of the under 20 boys has worked wonders for zambia. Shame on those who were against the use of the under 20. Its not about age it’s skill and determination.

  83. Tubenenu

  86. Christopher mwelwa

    Keep the fire burning to achieve yo dream. Congrats

  87. Franktok

    Congratulations boys! But just imagine how many goals we would have netted had the boys been a bit more composed throughout the game. Once the guys begin to pass the ball accurately and work on our ball control there will be no stopping Zambia. Coach Wedson you have homework to do.

  88. afcon phiri

    The biggest mountain was beating Algeria in Algeria. Its a near impossible for any team to beat ARABS in their own back yard. BEAT NIGERIA IS POSSIBLE. NIGERIA WILL BITE DUST.

    • mwenya mwenya

  97. Naik

    Though the coach has managed to lead the team to two victories, he needs to be fired, let’s found a white coach, this man is not trustworthy come 7th October he assemble a different team with new face, however nothing has changed in the Zambian football when you talk about the national team, otherwise with the u20 night bola name lase

  98. vern

    Come 7 October Mulase.

  99. Christopher Silwamba

    Lets Learn To Appreciate Where It Is Due,so That We Encourage The Team And Technical Bench For More Success In Future Engagemen Ts Ahead Of The Team. Chris Sills
