Seated comfortably at bottom of Group K, Chipolopolo have angered Zambian soccer lovers


Some soccer fans in Kitwe want Chipolopolo to improve their display as they fight to qualify for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations in Cameroon.

With two rounds of matches remaining in the campaign, Zambia are bottom of Group K with four points, three behind leaders Guinea Bissau, after four matches played.

Fans talked to by LT Sports cited the backline as one area in which Zambia must improve ahead of the last two matches in the qualifying campaign.

“Qualifying for Africa Cup is tricky. We need to improve in defence and perform better. Why are we failing to defend after scoring? The biggest problem is our defense is shaking let the coach work on the defence,” Chanda Mulenga said.

“Zambia is playing well but we must improve in defence.

If we play the way we played against Guinea Bissau we can beat Mozambique and Namibia,” Prosper Shamatutu said.

Zambia’s next match is against Mozambique on November 16 in Maputo before concluding Group K action at home against Namibia in March 2019.

“The style of play is ok. We are going to the Africa Cup, Mozambique and Namibia are just keeping our points. We have chances to qualify provided we win the remaining two matches,” another fan said.

Oscar Lubinda added:”The coach is taking long to make substitutions. Look at the way Solomon Sakala; he should have just played for forty five minutes.”

Zambia has so far posted one win, two defeats and a draw.
