  4. ndamwymfwa maisa

    Pls coach search players even fron division 1 clubs more especially in rural parts of zambia

  5. Bazo

    Please don’t include Alex ng’onga forever, sven u have already archived something in zambian football, leaving ng’onga is a very big achievement, well done my coach

  6. peter

    we are proud u coach with you’re dear

  7. James Mphande

    We have hope with u coach but in the coming camps call all the internationals like fashion sakala,patson daka,augustin mulenga and many others.. before it’s too late

    • Naked facts

      You don’t call professionals any how, they have club commitments. They will be released by their clubs on FIFA dates.

  8. Benny

    Iwe James he knows what he is doing stop dreaming Fashion he is average and needs 2 compete with locally based players some of foreign based are below average

  9. mercutio

    Ba Sven plz go in all the Ten Provinces of Zambia In Search of Players….e.g.t Kashikishi warriors…Panadol rangers… many more teams with hidden football players.

    • Naked facts

      @mercutio, The idea of going in provinces is good but not right now. September is too close for that program. let him select from what is available to him.

    • Uncle Bizzo

      He should also go into compounds and watch some games,some teams have good players eg Kwaza kuutuka FC

  10. Jms

    I know of one coach who worked like an expatriate coach ( mhsrip)yuuka . An expatriate coach works without no one’s say do it we want the best of it

  11. kedrick siame

    Do your selection as a professional u are, dear not someone to give you ka kashi corruption we need a good driver like the way it was in 2012.

  12. Zambian

    Bola mulekeleni umwine apange team twapapata.

  13. Patrick Mwale

    Am urging all well meaning Zambian fans to support Vandenbroek as he acquaints himself with the Zambian set up,critics can come later because we all don’t know what he has to offer for the beautiful game.Lets support and rally behind him,am sure he is so resolute determined to fight and conquer.

  14. King David


  15. Andrew Monde

    I what to give a Credit for the football association of Zambia for the bored decision, they took in bringing the expatriate coach,the problem in Zambia we want to be controlling coaches to implement and put players we want,we don’t look at the country at heart but selfishness and greedy,corruption in football is killing Zambian soccer, let the coach be independent.

  16. Ba Punchu

    Am hopeful we are bringing it home again.

  17. Brian

    He is doing great, let him make our Country for a better level

  18. godfrey phiri

    Comment where are patson daka and fashoin sakala coach

    • mihty mufurila

      hope our local coaches will give Sven all the surport.

  19. Jimmy

    This is what we were waiting for.I know, with you every thing will be possible.continue with your selection,yeah make your own squad.Go Zambia Go.

  20. innocent ings soko

    Thanx coach wat about sate sate. It’s true we don’t want ngonga likula, chisamba . Ni BOLA na LESA. Let him work.

  21. Lima

    I like it BA coach go a head
    ..plz can I know where this wonderful coach came from….

  22. Mr kalaba

    I pray this coach can make us win our second

  23. Godwin smart manyodocious

    Let him do what he can do best

  24. Peter mwape

    What about Shadrick Musonda from (Nkana fc)?

  25. Lottie Simataa from Katima Mulilo , Namibia

    I think the coach did his work, lets try support him . in football we expect three things, win, loose and a draw. the selected squad is good and strong.

  26. dador chibuye

    Mr.Sven i salute you coz the way you are coming z good……plz be fast you arrange friendly game …and don’t forget Chisamba lungu ….

  27. Benny

    Ba Godfrey phiri do u understand the word ‘assessment’ if yes why asking about Sakala and daka? What it mean locally based players? The solution 2 ur problem is night school.

  28. Benny

    Ba chibuye Chisamba is already finished remember how he played against Algeria he was average but when he was substituted 4 Mwepu the match leveled and quickly Mwepu scored. From that day l came 2 understand a reason why chicken failed 2 include him in the team even after half time.

  29. Kp

    Just watch and see, bola ni bola

  30. mercutio

    Lets wait & see as at now…coz chisamba & fwayo are both local players but not included..

  31. one ZULU

  41. golden

    good idea coach

  42. Chansa Elvis

    I can’t see any international player in the squad why???.

    • Reagan Luke

      You Chanda the problem i have seen in u is that you dropped school at break time.The coach is aiming at building a strong team,hence he is trying to assess the local players so that he integrates them in a national team.

  43. Chansa Elvis

    Why KALABA and other professional players

    • Reagan Luke

      Sven seems to be a good coach our country will ever enjoy.That sounds well to come up with the very central solution to assess local players in order that he come up with a right and full squad team. Drive us to our dream in 2019 and 2022 in particular.Great thanks goes to the FAZ…

  44. andrew

    Its better u use young players

  45. Evans sinyangwe

    Go Zambia go Zambia
