Chipolopolo Gift Fans with 2-1 Win Over Guinea

The Chipolopolo boys repaid the huge fan turn out with a 2-1 win over Guinea Bissau at a packed to capacity National Heroes Stadium.

Coach Sven Vandenbroeck was gifted a win on his debut assignment before home fans with Stoppilla Sunzu putting Zambia ahead on 15 minutes.

Orlando Pirates midfielder Justin Shonga doubled the lead with a stroke of brilliance in the 54th minute.

Guinea Bissau’s Frederic Mendy was gifted by an unlikely Kennedy Mweene error in the 80th minute.

Republican President Edgar Lungu led thousands of fans in cheering the Chipolopolo on at National Heroes Stadium.

It was the first win for Zambia in three Group K matches and pushes the Chipolopolo to four points.

Zambia will play Guinea Bissau on Sunday away in the final of back-to-back matches.

        If the new coach knows he’s job well, mweene should be dropped from the squad with immediate effect. He has been the joke causing silly mistakes for more than five times in previous matches.

Why are seats for, yes we can stand but observe the other brother who you are obstructing. In the walking way was pact hence same guys wanted to to stand because they could not get what they wanted to see. pliz ba FAZ help us because next time ni home viewing. Congrats Isaac Siamujompa for buying the heart of Svern and pliz keep it up.

    We can’t afford to rely on one player, the mistake was mweenes, otherwise that was great, but make sure you work on your friend’s weakness, those guys are tall, heavy and slowm but you should increase your speedy, work on your strong passes and ball control, let loose of your fear when you get the ball near your opponents goal post, always work as a team.

    I think my fellow funs this is the kind of play we were looking ,mwepu and nathan controlled there roll in the midfield coz A defender can not over rap wen the midfield is not existing we so the likes of sunzu gave us A goal .mwepu proved what he can do his passes especially in the first half they were amazing .the coach also made a mistake of substituting the computer instead of chama .I have a simple advice to my bro him the computer is that at times he is abit slow he expose the ball to match so far mwepu u are the best u deceive 90 minutes. Congratulation team go Zambia go
