    Fair draw now the only problem is Andrew kamanga

    • George Sitali

      This SELFISH and non-performing ANDREW KAMANGA at it again!! Just what is this LOSER doing at FAZ, if I may ask?? He fought Kalu left, right and center. Through hook, or crook he became FAZ head. But Zambian soccer has continued to deteriorate ever since he became FAZ president..

      # KAMANGA MUST GO! NOW!

    • Tman

      Kamanga does not play in the team… The problem is our boys are chibuku boys kikiki

      I think social media should be used to stimulate and demonstrate one’s intelligence, wisdom and ability to communicate. It is not enough to tell someone that you love or hate them and fail to give reasons and attributes of good or bad performance of the individual you love or hate. During the current AFCON there have been more coach casualties than heads of football associations. Perhaps that could help us to understand the problem somehow. However, the firing and resignations of coaches could just be a confounding factor. Let us also look at the quality of players. Among the teams that moved to the round of sixteen, only Madagascar had the unknown lot at continental club football or international major leagues football. While the teams playing in the final have star players like Sadio Mane and Mahrez. Does this not explain partially what happens? The problem is that people here like playing blame games at the expense of team spirit. If you condon and and support a blame game you will leave a painful life because the fact is that a single finger can’t crush a louse. A single rotten groundnut makes you to spit all the groundnuts you were chewing. It’s either FAZ or we have all failed that we need to change the way think about our football affairs are run in the country.

        It is true let us change our mindset and focus on positive than negative comments

    • Mutale

      True

  2. Brainwasher

    Already qualified

  3. Zack

    Zambia will b the first team to qualify from this group

  4. Mm

    With Zimbabwe and Algeria in the group I don’t see Zambia qualifying once again.

    • Mubanga

      Exactly my thought, imagine how we struggled to beat Botswana at cosafa in 90mins

  5. BRY-B .M. KAYULA

    OUR TEAM PUT MORE EFFORT ON WHAT YOU ARE DOING BECAUSE THIS YEAR AFRICA CUP IT SHOULD BE YOU BUT KATWISHI

  6. KUPA OKUPAKO

    The technical bench should work extra hard for the CHIPOLOPOLO to qualify to the AFCON in 2021. Nowadays each team is strong and underleting is a problem.

  7. CHRISTOPHER SILWAMBA

    Comment: WHAT IS NEEDED IS FIRST FIND A COACH TO LOOK AFTER THE TEAM WITHOUT DELAY IF WE ARE TO MAKE IT FOR 2021 FINALS, MORE IMPORTANTLY THEY AV INCREASED THE SALARY TO A MUCH ADVANTAGE OF SCOUTING FOR A GOOD TRAINER. MR.C. SILLS.

  8. Bashikulu Em2a

    Mind you,Algeria is playing afcon final tomorrow.watch them.Am not educated,finito.

    • Dude

      We could just be in the same group with the defending Champions i.e if Algeria wins tommorow. Though I don’t wish them luck.

  9. Tim

    The issue here is finding reputable foreign coach.
    Local coaches too much corruption and favouritism.

    • GeoEng.

      I agree with you Tim. Once we sort out the issue of the coach permanently, the problems we are seeing today will be history!

  10. Mukanwa mukikopo

    Yo-yo mama twafwa

  11. Rei sich elliabs

    I dnt see Zambia making it once more with Zimbabwe and Algeria in the same group Ba Kananga muchinjeko na jersey opomwaishila tafyawamapo ifuntu twalileka no Ku wina

  12. SEE MIND

    We experienced coach and call all old players experience. And what we needs reunite players and administration then we can archives !!!

  13. James

    Fair group this time we are going to make it. We don’t need chintu on the technical bench anymore and we don’t need to see anymore experimenting of some sort we already have enough players.

  14. Phwishi

    What a tough draw?I don’t see Chambia making it

  15. Philips

    Algeria and Zimbabwe will go through.

  16. Silungwe Felix.

    we have already qualified,only that people have short memories,we beat Algeria home & away the last time we met.So Algeria has fear 4 Zambia.Akakunyelele takalabwa.Let the coach use 2018 world cup qualifying squand apart from Ng’onga then we shall make it.

    • Sirvans

      Algeria and Zimbabwe are beatable. Players who made us fail to qualify are old now. We have a team that can do wonders. We are qualifying with Botswana this time Around.

  17. Fmj

    Lets Look Aj Zambia’s Football Fratenity.We Have Failed To Qualify For The Afcon Back To Back Because Of The Poor Govarning Of Kamanga The Faz President.We Cannot Qualify Unless We Ousted Kamanga.

  18. Bermuda C

    Chances of qualifying are high my biggest threat is Algeria. Ok tiyanganepo.

  19. Kashiwa mwape

    I see Zambia missing this edition again looking at the pair of the team we have been drawn

  20. Mapesho

    @Kashiwa, can you look again. I don’t like what you are seeing. Back to the sender. Kkkkkkk

  21. FLAVA DEE

    Zambians too much jelous thats why we dnt develop ure busy bleming kamanga, wat has he done?

    • Wezi

      It’s not what Kamanga has done, but what he has not done that make us blame him.

  22. Bruno mars the moonshine jungle master

    Football in zambia has gone down i can’t wast my time to watch the loosing team

  23. mc

  24. Kanyembo

  27. mulenga mulenga

  29. ZIMANDOLA

    Zambia qualifies. Easily.

  30. Kangwai Beston Goodson

    You are using a business man to run football in zambia look at the performance of our team are we gone to bite this two teams even botswana we sweat so change presidentship and find the one who can run a team in zambia.

  31. Vincent Kabwe

    With Zim and Algeria there,i dont us qualifying for 2021 Afcon,we do have the right players.The problem has been with FAZ and the Technical team.How did Mauritania managed to qualify and do well with players who play in lower divisions in the major leagues?if we sought out the mess at footbal house and bring in a good local coach we will do well.The two 2019Afcon finalists are all coached by thr local coaches.

  32. ibra moudinho

    i dnt thk zambia wl make it again coz de prblm statx wth de president he doesnt chuz quality coachz ad wen de coach z picked,he doesnt balance de team wen it cumz 2 selections.ad u dnt send boyz 2 do menz job,stp pickn smal boyz 4 nw we learnt a reasn bck

  33. nalunana

    Zambia has become week it’s not the Zambia we know .

  34. Madalitso M Phiri

    We can qualify if we do the right thing. We have a bunch of local coaches who move in and quickly put us back where we belong. I do not agree with foreign coach particularly now that we have local options. For a foreign coach to understand Zambian players we would have already lost 2 matches or 3. Then he is fired. After that you want local coaches to stand in. Then the team begins to win but we can’t qualify. What’s that?

  35. Adam Eve

    we already a very good coach in the name of Beston Chambeshi, he as demonstrated his skills with the under 20’s, what more evidence of his abilities do we need?

  36. Joseph

    With Kamanga, football in Zambia has gone down, it’s difficult to quarify. We are underdog even kuli ba Botswana nangufye ba Malawi.

  37. Pedro Paco

    Comment zambia as been drawn in a fair group no need to blame anyone let us give our boys support that so

  38. Mapesho

    ECL is a fun of soccer, maybe that’s why he has dropped Mawere. He has see the sport going down hill.

  39. pethias daka

    zambia is qualifing this time come what may

  40. marshall moyo

    kamaga is ok, the problem is with the technical bench and faz.

  41. Musonda

    Please let’s go through back those days,we were playing like champions why today? change all the technical bench and the intire management including FAZ President Andrew kamanga he is doing nothing at all.we can not playing like amachers as if we are not former champs, please please consider it put corruption aside select good players twapapata.

  42. Apostle Emmanuel Mwape Mulenga

    LISTEN FAZ IF YOU WANT ZAMBIA TO QUALIFY FOR 2021 AFCON AND WORLD CUP FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME GIVE BESTON CHAMBESHI TO COACH THE SENIOR NATIONAL TEAM. WATCH WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE SENIOR TEAM. THE MAN IS THE BEST COACH OF THE SEASON.

    APOSTLE EMMANUEL, LUWINGU, NORTHERN PROVINCE, ZAMBIA.

  43. GeoEng.

    I love my country Zambia and our national team.

  44. CJ

    Come on guys leave Andrew .AK out of this all subject all we is the right people in the squared people who will fight for mother Zambia with or without Andrew kamanga we need a team with focus ,determination and courage look at Algerians they are united they play as a time not as an individual that’s the kind of team we need

  45. Statford Mazyopa
