U20 Shine In Kigali

The Zambia Under-20 made good on their credentials with a 2-0 win over Rwanda away in Kigali.

Kafue Celtic striker Francisco Mwepu did justice to his family name by fallowing in his elder brother’s footsteps Enock with a virtuoso performance that saw him net a brace.

Rwanda who swept past Kenya in the last round could not find answers from a probing Zambia side that dealt them a blow before their home fans.

The African champions are fighting to earn the right to defend their title in Niger next year but have to negotiate their way through a difficult qualification process.

Zambia has to go past Rwanda before facing either Sudan or Burundi in the final qualifying round.

The Rwandese will be in Lusaka next Saturday in the second leg hoping to overcome a 2-0 deficit.

Assistant coach Charles Bwale had the luxury of two England based players with Wigan Athletics’ Mwiya Malumo making a cameo appearance in the dying minutes of the tie in Kigali while Lifumpa Mwandwe of Shrewsbury Town did not even make the line-up.

    Proud of u boys keep up de spirit but why bringing someone from Europe to come nd bunch him?

      He was is part of the winning Zambian team and will get full pay for being patriotic enough to wear the green Jersey . The game plan in this case mattered . Obviously , plan B in an away game has other tactics . You wait and see next weekend at home the young lad will definitely supprise every one .

    Now what to do YOU FAZ you must LEARN we need the corroboration which we had among Godfrey yuka chitalu,Alex chola and the then manager ( mtsrip) and the then Faz never fight but maintain go for the best players to be coaches if you want good football kalusha went in coaching early he should have waited others wise he could have been a good coach if he concentrated in just coaching now he mixed with managerial aspects we have lost kalu now let’s look forward and see what we can do Don’t do what you want to do to simata leave him if he is critizing you you just have to change no matter how you forbid him people love because he has the qualities of a leader if you do what you want do suppose it was you what could have happened be Fair just go to Catholic church you will hear them say Na—-twi–ngilee mu — gada yàkwa– lesa SO please let’s get in or encourage others to get in not out PLEASE

    • ROKA

      Kalusha was big headed,hence confused faz and himself. He has come out with zero both as an administrator and coach. Intact he called himself director. Result, Zambian football lost directions. The same Simataa,he confused himself also.It seems he doesn’t what he aiming at now,apart from Galt finding!!Please we some sober minded people to counsel the two!!
