Mozambique Deny Zambia AFCON Qualification

The mambas of Mozambique have piled more misery on the Chipolopolo by defeating them 1-0 in a Group K Africa Cup of Nations qualifier.

Zambia’s loss means they miss out on qualification for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations for a consecutive time.

A 64th minute Reginaldo Fait strike condemned Zambia to its second successive loss in the campaign and also miss out on the Cameroon 2019 Africa Cup of Nations.

The result could also trigger the hunt for the next coach as Sven Vandenbroeck’s five game contract was tied to Africa Cup of Nations qualification.

Zambia remains rooted on four points with Mozambique leaping to seven points while Guinea Bissau and Namibia have eight points with the West Africans having a superior goal difference.

The final match against Namibia next year in March will just be a formality.

    • Isaac Banda

      For u know why this has happened plz look for players not people without the ability to win but to make money no we need people to play football with or without money but winning

  4. Benet Mwanza

    It’s sad that we are crying as Zambians because of one person. Now this must be delivered to him. It is even there in the BIBLE that the promise has to be fulfilled. The Zambian coach no other SVEN was given a task to make Zambia national soccer team of qualify for AFCON 2019 now he has failed. Safe journey wishing you or the best as you go back to Belgium. TAKE NOTE it’s not me who has chassed you, you were given a task to do of which you even agreed to.

  5. Isaac Banda

    Zambian players have reached there aim meaning they are playing for fun because they have more money now look for players who Will play for the country not for money only people with history to make and put Zambia on the football map plz coach

    It was not our time ,next time zambia

  7. kelvin

    I don’t think our couch is the best for Zambia.Couch who can’t lead the game.he saw how poor performance was Emmanuel Banda and Augustine Mulenga in the first half but he kept.

  11. Kongo

    Zambia just can’t win away,both players and the technical bench to blame. Zambia wants for the opponents to score that’s when the start playing

  12. Soccer fan

    There is much more to qualification than hiring a foreign coach

  13. Brian Mujuku

    We are tired of this mwandi,, let FAZ go back to the drawing board other wise Zambian football is all about pocketing themselves not for the benefit of mother Zambia

    • ROKA.

      Well done expatriate coach Zambians wanted spearheaded by so called football analysts, football supporters and fans wanted.The quality of play was worse than the way the team played under Zambian immediate past coaches. And to make things the worst,the technical benched lacked experience as the experienced local coaches were shunned at the instigation of so called football analysts!!Employ Zambian coach and involve most of both retired and current coaches as advisors. ZHowever, well trainee coach Sven and your technical inexprienced bench !!

  14. patriot

    Just change political leadership and see the difference

    • ROKA.

      Patriot,just call yourself unpatriotic!! This HSS nothing to do with the government! Why always relate everything failed to government! Talk football when you are talking about football

  16. Eddy Ya

    Zambian football cannot improve if we keep hiring foreign coaches who does nothing but sit there and just eat our taxed money please find a coach who can read games

  17. Ndabeba

    Summon him for inciting Mozambique to win Zambia.

    This is the previous technical wanted to do ,building the teams but the so called football analysts and so called football fans misled FAZ which resulted into Nyarenda resigned and discarding Best one Give local coaches more time to gain international coaching experience!!

    In own opinion l think the coach & technicall bench are all useless, failing to lead the game what kind of a coach is he?fire him & let’s maintain our local coaches please.l am very disappointed with the results,home & away sure!

    • ROKA.

      Well said Edith Cheba!!We need local coaches who must be offered further training in coaching and sports management!!

      • winston

        What training do they need? Even our most trained and experienced Kalusha failed!! It all comes back to corruption. Foreign coaches choose players on merit. Our local coaches sell positions. Give the coach time. Let him use his players. Not other coaches’ players.

  25. Joshua

    The game was poorly read…the technical bench should have done their substitutions at half time.. Tough lucky.

  26. Charles micklay

    The shoes are too big for him,he can’t lead the game. how can you start with small boys in this crucial game like this??he has fired himself

  27. Musompanyika

    I think Mozambique deserves to win… Wen u go in the game u xpect 3 results.. a win, a draw, or a loss. So, thumb up to Mozambique, let’s try on next time… It’s not our day and time… No wonder it’s a qualifying fixture so, chances are 50-50.

  28. Mm

    Useless couch experimenting in every game pack n go

  29. THINK

    Its high time we charged technical bench in Zambia, everything is miss as things stand now.The coach deserve to go unless he tell us that he is just lead by the technical bench,though, we all know that he has the final say in making lineups.One may ask,why keeping players who can deliver on bench and start with those who failed to perform on the previous game?talk the likes of Kalaba and by the way why don’t they call Chisamba Lungu? its so disappointing to be failing to progress in the group sure come on,we lost it at all in football, one may ask,where have we gone wrong? is they any corruption for one to play in the national team? if so, what could be the solution? is it because player are being so highly paid? What if we prefer to stop paying players a lot money and have players who can play on the heart of the nation provided given support? I believe and not ashamed to say that football brings people together in our country. Any way very disappointed.

    • MwiSumbu

      Forget the technical bench. We told you Kamanga would be a disaster. You never wanted to listen to us. He knows zilch about football but you were fooled by his vitriol against Kalusha Winning afcon is not a small achievement. Some countries have never won it since it started. We couldn’t win it for 40 years and someone comes to demean the achievement and you believe him. Now we have failed to qualify for the second tournament running some thing we have never done before. Kamanga is a loser!

  30. Olivia

    Bring back the team kalaba and chama are players. Bring back mbola.

  31. sikaonga

  33. Lemmy cheba

    The game was poorly leady l think this useless coach has fired himself no need to write him a letter.please let’s find a technical bench which can lead the game before we loose the respect. I am Very disappointed with the results!

  34. The Obsever

    Zambians must sawallow their pride and seek Kalusha Bwalya’s advise. No one has ever rebuild or achieved anything from Zambian soccer since the Gabon Air crash than Kalusha. Lets seek him

    • ROKA.

      Forget about your idol. He is part of decking football standards That Africa cup won was by chance!He even failed to defend it!!?So it was a fake win!The problems is the so called football analysts.I am watching talking football and listening to analysis, it is hollow,just making noise!!These are the people who are killing the game of football misleading FAZ and discouraging the local coaches!! Kalusha is part of destruction!!

  35. The Obsever

    where is bamuzo? is this what he and his friends fought for so much? twice not making it to the Afcon and beaten left, centre and right by under dogs?

  36. Tefyo

    Zambia can’t win away games it’s very rear history has it

  37. chimbala

    They are just wasting taxpayer’s money.

  38. Ali "sate sate" kampamba

  39. Moses Mawele

    Players have became very stupid that’s why they are performing badly..

  40. Charles

    It’s a sad development that we haven’t qualified for AFCON 2019 Nevertheless, I blame the couch and the technical bench for always failing to read the game. I have got no kind words for them let them be fired simple for their incompetent.

    • Fire Mulilo

      It’s not only the technical bench. Fire everyone from Kamanga to Mweene. There’s too much mediocrity in Zambia

  41. THINK

    This coach should just proceed from Mozambique to Belgium, who can say I need him in Zambia? If so wish he take the technical bench with him.Let him leave our players before he finish them.A coach with no system at all surely, this wasn’t a game to experiment players no but a must win game.Kalaba,Mweene,Nsuzu,Kabaso and Sinkala keepitup guys all the best at your various clubs you deserve nothing but the best.

  42. Razor

    Good. We would just have wasted more money going forward into the tournament which we don’t have. These are the austerity measures and they are bearing fruit.

  43. Mpelo saulo

    We have lost the game today not because we are very nice people at heart, not because we lack mental strength, not because we luck talent. We lost the game purely because the team lacked system and tactics to the game. The accuser of the brethren who described us to be very nice was equally too nice with decision making. The coach lacked the drive to wanting to win, failure to make right changes as and when it was required to do so. Experiments in crucial games will never produce results. # Sven must go # Kamanga must go no hard feeling Sven has failed as much as Kamanga has failed. Let’s not be too nice bane kuyabebele

  44. The Artillery

    Zambian player’s are only good at sleeping around with girls,in this angle there are very good..

  45. Mpelo saulo

    Think my brother I totally agree with u. Kalaba, sunzu, mweene, sinkala and not forgetting Kasai kabaso chongo they have contributed to the national in their own unique way. It had to take Ghana to recall experienced players to post positive results today while Sven thinks he is quiet smart leaving claetus chota chama, Kalaba and parson on the bench. We have no tax payers money to fund failure #sven must go matusi tiyaziba

  46. THINK

    Yes Mpelo,I can feel it for these players bro.look today this one tomorrow you bring that one when are you going to coordinate the team?some times its good to work on mistakes the entire technical bench must go for as to improve. Firstly, do they hear from the public out cry? Kalaba could have started the game not Augustine talk of Emmanuel banda too young to that magnitude of the game.

  47. Maxwell mulapati

    Were is kalu? Forgive us pliz come back, we dont know wat we were doing, pliz, pliz

  48. chitundu Gilbert

    Don’t chase Sven he is a good coach give him time n he not to blame for loss wander is to blame

  49. jim

    Our own. Coach could have done better,but this. Seven I think should be a UPND. coach

  50. THINK

    We need new technical bench and let them start selecting players on performance not corruption. People who want to make names and to our players guys be disciplined enough bear minimize

  51. Sibweni

    WEDSON AND SVEN are coachs 2 improve zambian football . Zambian pipo lack patience or tolerance bcoz we demand 2 much frm coachs but let us giv sven a chance bcoz we material but 2 use it. After afcon 2012 our went 2 slept and underrated so called teams in southern region where are we today.

  52. Marcus jr

    chiyende chi coach

  53. THINK

    As things stand we don’t have a coach. Ok even we say the coach what about the technical bench it is a well know fact that he get advaise from failed people no doubt.

  54. brent

    No fashion no vein believe this

  55. jim

    We can’t maintain this ,he gets much of taxpayers money so he should be. Deported back 2moro, he will never achieve good results 4mother. Zambia

  56. Dr. Zimba Emmanuel.

    What has gone wrong today? We used to say that this is a good couch after beating other teams. Today,we have changed and started condemning the couch. Why we are like this?God come and help us.

  57. vov

    Useless coach.

  58. Trevor Pambwe

    Honestly we don’t put unexperienced players in de games we’re u need points pleaz.mademo nipa friendly game.

  59. Fidelis

    The coach is to blame for the disastrous performance , he couldn’t apply his philosophy well , where is iva lengwe who was in support of this katolela(ball boy) , with his highly questionable qualifications. Please Sven pack your bag and go , you are the worst coach Zambia has ever engaged, you hurt a lot of people in our country, don’t you know that football in Zambia is like a religion, big failure

  60. Kamon

    The coach is employed to win matches and if the team doesn’t win matches, a normal coach will resign. If that coach doesn’t resign this week.
    I demand that that coach resigns or let Kamanga and his executive go.
    Do they want us to die from heart attacks?

    Let’s understand that in a football match we except three different outcomes, winning ,lossing or drawing. So finger pointing is not not a solution.

  84. SPECIAL FORCES

    ANDREW KAMANGA was so CRITICAL OF KALUSHA BWALYA’S LEADERSHIP POSITION AS FAZ E He could not wait for his downfall. Remember the drama he caused at one of the. AGM which was still in progress. He had to be manhandled by the police. What has the NIGGA ACHIEVED EVER SINCE HE took over from Kalusha bwalya..ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. THE UNDER TWENTY AFRICA CUP IN. WHICH ZAMBIA EMERGED CHAMPIONS OF AFRICA WAS THE BRAINCHILD OF MINISTER OF MAWERE. IT WILL NEVER BE CREDITED TO THIS BROKE ASS. NIGGA ANDREW KAMANGA.. KING KALU WILL. FOREVER REMAIN A LEGEND AND AN ICON IN ZAMBIA.. HE IS THE ONLY PERSON IN SOUTHERN AFRICA TO WIN AFRICA FOOTBALLER OF THE YEAR IN 1988. HE IS THE ONLY FORMER FAZ CHIEF TO WIN THE FIRST EVER AFCON TROPHY FOR ZAMBIA IN 2012. FOR THE FIRST TIME IN ZAMBIA’S. HISTORY WE WERE CHAMPIONS OF AFRICA!! WHAT A REMARKABLE ACHIEVEMENT!!! WE SHALL. FOREVER BE PROUD OF YOU KALU FOR THE SERVICES YOU HAVE RENDERED TO MOTHER ZAMBIA!!!

    These are the effects of having too many foreign players in the super league!

  86. moseslungu

    Too bad guys it’s not our time but time is never yours if u can’t make it to be. I would blame the coach , u such games u start with senior o big players then lastly u use the remaining ones, but our coach made it opposite. Anyway we can’t judge he knows what he was doing

  87. INZWANGA

    FOR THOSE PONTIFICATING ABOUT THE ECONOMY BEING BAD.. WHAT CAN YOU SAY ABOUT LIBYA UNDERGOING A CIVIL AND PLAYING HOME MATCHES IN TUNISIA. ON SATURDAY THEY THUMPED SEYCHELLES 8-1 AGAINST THE BACK DROP OF CIVIL STRIFE WITHIN THEIR COUNTRIES. IF THEY BEAT SOUTH AFRICA IN THE LAST MATCH THEY CAN JOIN NIGERIA AT AFCON 2019.
