  8. Bro gift bwalya

    This is why Zambian coaches always fail. They can’t even manage to call a strong team.

  9. Sports Analyst

    While i understand that the coach have not included Mwepu and Daka bcoz they wl play in under 23 squad, i dont know y he is still leaving players like Stopilla Sunzu playing for Metz in lique 1, RainFord Kalaba And Nathan! This is really useless

  10. Man p

    This is rubbish no kalaba, Nathan sinkala, stopila sunzu and mwene nonsense

  11. Terrorist

    You local coaches ! no wonder mutwebela ati twalitemwa ukulanda landa, nimwe mulenga ba mbuli. Why cant you call Kalaba, Sunzu, Mwepu, Daka and Sinkala like what my brothers said earlier ?? Again on top of that why cant you having friendly matches with strongest teams like Algeria, Senegal, Tunisia, Ghana, Congo DR, Egypt and Morocco ?? Every time ma small teams. You guys, you have irritating me a lot if i was a coach i would have make things difference. Namukaye MUKULUSA !!!!

  12. Teacher

    How can you leave good players , like kalaba, suzu, Nathan,mweene,daka,mwepu,mbola,kaunsu,, and you bring Young player,if you are playing with Algeria, Ghana, Egypt, are you going to use Young player, this is we call under dog

  13. ba Chelsea from makeni

    va chabe chabe team full of local stupid player’s. ma coach bamu Zambia kuwaya way fye. make sure ba faz to hire an international coach who is able to recognize talented young Zambians who football abroad..noti ivi vaupuba.
    nsha tambeko ifwe zambia eyo twaishiba fye Ni bola na lesa chapwa…….🇿🇲🙏

  14. Herv Rena

    Coach alifye bwino ,we need fresh blood.Mweene nakula and Kalaba is so Pompous.Patson and Mwepu are balanciñg up under 23 capwa!

  15. thiago jr zacks midfielder

  16. Mweene

    Why leaving out mwepu,daka,sunzu and fashion sakala?

  17. Inspector

    The teams kit is too old renew it with a new design. Same design year in year out

  18. Liverpool

    Why not using the talented players like sunzu,kalaba,mweene,,sinkala,daka,mwepu naba fashion..

  19. Dj Dimples

    😂😂😂😂😂back Zambia sure! You should have reaveled the 70 coaches hurry for that position. Talent is wasting abroad. The likes of LUBAMBO MUSONDA & SUNZU. What have you done to keep the Bola yapA zed fans happy? Nothing!.. it’s high time we played friendly matches with prominent national teams like Sweden, Belgium or England. Look at Nigeria our friend , they’ll be playing Brazil. Some of these local players must first go through the juvenile stage like the CHAN. You could have drop some players like kapumpu, chabula, malama , katema and toaster and to be replaced by Mweene , LUBAMBO , SUNZU, Kalama and sinkala…. Zambia 😡😠

    • Shamujompa

      Where is young Isaac Siqmujompa. Don’t leave this boy by this time we are waiting for him to graduate into a full fragied player to take from Nsunzu and Sinkala. Nomba ninshi even when you have not tried him.

  20. Good football

    Why leave players like Charles musonda, kalu ,James phiri, chitalu,Weston nyirenda,kelvin mutale,mbesuma

  21. Member

    the squad lacks some exposure people….and long term experienced people.Anyway let’s see how far they they go,when you are about to fail,you then bring expatriate coach.

  22. chax

    FAZ Should be serious…..we have Afcon champions in the group and you play friendly with such teams.
    Hope you know the team Algerians they are facing in preparation of Zambia.
    we leave exposed and players who are always in the pitch like #Kalaba #Sunzu #Mwepu #Musonda #Patson
    call players in the squad on merit then football will improve in Zambia.

  23. Musa

    Why leave players like mweene, mwepu, patson suzu and fashion

  24. John Musonda

    We need mwepu,fashion,daka n kalaba

  25. Evans

    the team is ok,the only mistake is that he omited the exprienced ones.

  26. Judith chisimba

    Wishing them nothing but the very best…We need team playing not individual please guys… 🇿🇲🇿🇲🇿🇲🇿🇲🇿🇲

  27. Crevious

    Let call exposed players like Mweene ,mwepu,sunzu stophila, kalaba ,sinkala ,patson and fashion . Prepare this team to integrate so that they know and become coordinated in the pitch. Unlike begining to coach just before the a competitive match. Chiyangi prepare a united team now

  28. Andrew Monde

    What about guys like bene Patson Daka,Fashion,Mwempu,Kalaba and other good players we know than such a team.

  29. Micheal

  35. A real Zambian

    Kalaba, sunzu, mbola, chiasmus lungu , Nathan,kaunsu mwene …… We need them. Taking those you associate and drink with is destroying our football in Zambia. Coach try to make us enjoy football as we used to enjoy. If you are patriotic please think twice.

  36. Yot-k

  38. Aaron bwalya

  39. Julius Chimbule

    You need to bring in those players who played 2012 Africa cup than those gugulufo players. Why not recognizing mwepu,chisamba lungu, nkausu, kalaba, patson,fashion, mweene and others we know very well. Mr Faz president think properly to make football flourish than letting feeble options like this am seeing.
