  51. Chansamusa

    At least we can reserve antihypertensives and pain killers, team looks promising.

  56. Chris

    The squad is ok BT u left kapumbu.

    • Chemfya

      Kapumbu always plays out of position and creates pressure for the central defense. Happy to see him left out.

  57. Mucheta Mwaba

    Zambia go we are behind you guys

  58. Isaac C.Patrick

    Good Selection, imressive squad, my appeal to our new coach is that, you should not tolalet any curruption when selecting starting XI or in and out of field. Good lucky chipolopolo.

  59. Leo

    Iam interesting in strikes… Too much

  60. Moses kinda

    This is so encouraging. Go Zambia go. Brave coach. The selection clearly states that this coach is a corrupt free mind. He does not encourage corruption in the football fraternity. We are behind you. Amen!!!!

  61. Lubinda Edgar

    Seems promising

  62. Chansa patrick

      Iwe chi Alex Ng’ong’a you have been left out for one simple reason you have never scored in your life because UCHINDA TUBAFANA before any game


        I see three strikers all of them in front of open goal but failing to score its like you see a vagina and you fail to insert your mbolo inside

        • KANYINI

          Fwayo Tembo shared my cunt with the new coach Sven so this ka Belgium guy ni ka jealous that is why Fwayo was chased from camp

        • The Elders

          Please do not use fashion sakala in the first line up,because he always want to go for glory than playing as a team,the lady is to selfish.

          • Mbola

            kkkkkkkkkkk ati the lady is selfish

  84. Kennedy Bwalya

    I can’t see
    Edward chilufya
    Emmanuel Banda
    Ba coach at shani

  85. Iron Zion Lion

    The selection is gorgeous however; the boys should play as a team like how the u20 did. For them we could not anticipate who was going to score. Boys go and show Namibia that you play like ants(tunyelele) oneness. Believe you me am not behind you but always with you. Z 3 N 0

  86. B.A S.W.I.S.O

    the team luks promising go eagle go

  87. Luke

    The selection is good keep it up but I can’t see ziyo Tembo Y? Someone say something about the man.

  88. Bryan kamwendo

    Great team is defined by goals pliz guys muposeko amano bonse tulateya we just don’t have chance so u give us something

  89. Convent

    Yaa the squad is promising but am yet to see the line-up then will be able to predict . mweene shud be the first choice , sunzu, Sinkala, banda, mwepu, . formula he shud must be 4-5-1

  90. Cj

    Ba Elias and Givo, not everyone can be there, there is a limited number of players needed at a particular time no matter how many
    are good at your disposal. Wat determines who starts is now the combination or how players wld fit in wen playing. Looking at wat the front line chosen by the coach as at now, it’s not easy to replace any one by yo equally described as a gud player. Maybe some other tym.

  91. Nchimunya

    Nice selection coach

  92. Tedious Lungu

    My predictions: Zambia 4-2 Namibia

  93. Tedius Lungu

    Tedius Lungu not Tedious.

  94. Francis k

    Thank God for Rainford Kalaba. I like that player.

  95. Catman

    If u lose again its beta we use that money to increase fra maize buying price!!!!

  96. Humphrey

    Coach don’t listen to those people the team is okay and guys don’t make noise about the coach he know what he is doing okay……….

  97. Sikao zee

    Were is ziyo tembo iwe ka caoch

  98. Fred

    To me with the combination of old and experienced legs I see something promising

  99. William Mwembela

    This is superbly team work and management’s commitment to to go for a win match. Go Zambia Go.

  100. mourinho

    Only mental strength is required in order to beat Namibia the team is fantastic

  101. Acky Mukah

    go go boys even me who
    hated u so much this time around i am behind u guys, hope u have forgiven me.

  102. seven aside

  104. Sylvester Masuwa

    I we chi Elder I,why are you left Partson Daka.Ba Nsabata bena kuwaya-waya fye mu goal! We are going to freely give 3 point to Namibia if Mwene and Partson are not going to be in the game.So you Coach,make sure that team is strong.Ba Toaster bala pusumuna short which comes from near a pernalty centre.
