Micho Zeroes In On CHAN Squad

Chipolopolo coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has trimmed his number of local players after having conducted an assessment of 131 players across the country.

Micho has reduced the number to 71, segmented as 36 from the camp hosted in Ndola that covered Copperbelt, Central and North Western provinces with 35 from Lusaka, Southern, Western, Northern, Eastern and Muchinga.

The technical bench will run the rule on the 35 players that camped in Lusaka at National Heroes Stadium on Monday (February 24) to get the final 20 that will be part of the provisional 40 players in the national team.

Micho will shift his duties to the Copperbelt on Tuesday to have one final look at 36 selected players from the Super League and National Division One before picking his best performers.

The list comprises a list of regulars and first timers with some under-17 players like Miguel Chaiwa and Rickson Ng’ambi making the cut while under-20 stars Jonathan Munalula and Patrick Gondwe are also part of the selected players.

Only Zanaco players have been exempted from the screening process as they have had a tough calendar that includes a run in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Micho will keep an eye on Zanaco players as they compete in the Confederation Cup and also local league.

      Lusaka region (consist of southern, Western, Lusaka, and central province) and the rest copperbelt region.

    • Kikikik

      Southerners can’t be considered all they know is looking after cows and tribal politics.

  17. Hantobolo

    All you guys are just tribal. If it were a zambian coach i would have said that he is tribal. But the poor coach doesn’t know about the region and the sir names you are considering. He is merely picking on merit. Us tongas are good at wrestling introduce it as well. We wrestle with cows while luapula and lozis are good at swimming also bembas make good strikers and easterners good goal keepers and boxers facts. One Zambia one nation.

  18. Peace zambia

    where are players from Muchinga and Northern? useless!!!!

  19. Zacheause Zulu

    In Eastern province there is a good number of players who can do better…Zanaco fc knows very well how eastern players are..

  20. yama

    what about the other players

  21. Mr patriot

    I can see tribal concerns you pipo look at skill not tribe. I can attest to you by my own experience.i at one point faced this situation; I went looking for a job I went for interviews they asked about my name I told them nd they now asked for my work experience nd I did everything well but suddenly nd so shocking the person who was coming before me was asked abt his name nd he said am muyunda nd one of de employers said ” give him a job nimbuya wako” nd was given a job before me without asking any qualifications then I was given after him. Now u see you know wat trbe muyunda is, now my advice to you all don’t do harm to others if u don’t want to be harmed show how u want to b treated and not wat I saw.

  22. Mr patriot

    Frankly speaking we all know that Lusaka and copperbelt are the most developed provinces in zambia followed by southern, Central and eastern them northern,Western,muchinga,n.western ND lastly luapula.now my point is this under development in many less civilized proces disadivantages good performance.look poor, less or not football facilities makes it a challenge for pipo to develop their skills it’s not abt tribal favoursim but poor development.howi wish zambia had leaders with a Christian heart as we call ourselves a ” Christian ” I tell tribal remarks would have been a story of the past.

  23. Mr patriot

  31. Alex chimese

    What about luapula province

  32. Matanda

    Does it mean there are no good players from Luapula province? What do the writer mean by saying through out the country when other provinces are have been left out.good though this may be,but improve next time arround.
