4 PICKS FROM THE NKANA-SIMBA SHOW DOWN.

By Walliey Christiano Mukena. The highly anticipated showdown in kitwe has come and gone and it certainly lived up to expectation. Nkana carried the day with a slender 2-1 victory but its not over. Here are the top three talking points from the match. HARRISON CHISALA: FOR HOW LONG SHALL PRETEND WE AREN'T NOTICING? The little wing wizard had every one on the edge of their seats each time he was on the ball and its not the first time Harrison is putting up such a stella display.

OPINION: Sven clutching to a straw to avoid drowning

Sven clutching to a straw to avoid drowning

The best way is for Sven to offer to train local coaches and identify those with a quicker uptake. All this is done administratively and not become a newsworthy item where Sven makes it a scapegoat for not qualifying the team to afcon. The man is clutching to a straw to avoid drowning.

Zambia is not anywhere ready to stage Africa's biggest show piece but the possibility so light is there. Previously a country only needed four stadiums to host the Afcon but a country will now need eight, the very reason Cameroon has failed. Coming back to statistics, CAF only recognises venues which have the minimum capacity of 25,000 to host an AFCON match. There are only three stadiums that have that capacity in Zambia.
