With four goals in four consecutive matches for the bullets, The Sheriff will be stepping into the hostile territory of Maputo in full riot gear hoping to stop the Mozambican sabotage in a battle that now looks difficult to predict. Since the last Afcon qualifier where Zambia's boat to Cameroon was left wrecked and stuck along the coast of Guinea in a 2-1 defeat, Only two players have scored for their respective clubs: Rainford Kalaba and Shonga. The rest have struggled for form and game time. Getting into some unfriendly territory like Maputo with such a record is a thought that sends cold chills in every spine of every Zambian as the confidence Zambians have in this Svens team keep hitting rock bottom:
Zambia suffered another loss in the CAF 2019 Qualifiers campaign, this time away to Guinea Bissau. Angrily driving into that territory where Chipolopolo is known to put it`s fans in unnecessary mathematical calculations. Chipolopolo took the lead as early as 11th minute through Justine Shonga`s free kick only to come and lose with the first fifteen minutes from half time through Stoppila Sunzu`s own goal and Toni Brito Silva in the 52nd and 60th minute respectively. Sven Vandenbroeck`s men were never in the game and the loss followed the same starting line up that won the revered fixture in Lusaka on Wednesday. Chipolopolo Team Selection: Sven decided to start the same winning team he started in Lusaka, but the display was way too different.
Zambia national men's football team today regained its status to qualify to the 2019 afcon tournament after easily beating Guinea Bissau by 2-1 margin. The fixture marked round three of the Cameroon Afcon Qualifiers 2019 played evening at a fully packed Heroes National stadium in Lusaka. In a game that could easily be described as a one-sided affair, the Chipolopolo side displayed a good free flowing game that Zambian fans have been missing since the departure of former coach Harvey Regard in 2013. New chipolopolo tutor Sven Vandenbroeck, employed a team leaving notable players like rainford Kalaba on the bench. Sven had to start with Nathan Sinkala and Enock Mwepu in the holding midfield with lubambo Musonda, Cletus Chama Chota and Augustine Mulenga as the three attacking midfielders to support lone striker Justine Shonga. The back four was composed of the experienced Stophila Sunzu, Tp mMzembe's Kabaso chongo, Solomon sakala and

....EVEN IF IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKELY. Its only a day in between before Heroes cooks on gas. A must win Afcon qualifier for Zambia as the CHIPOLOPOLO host a tricky Guinea side. The onus is all on Sven to play his cards well but the magic cards look hidden underneath the piles of easy selection. Here are the BULLETS Sven must not ignore. FASHION SAKALA. Away from his self centered type of football which I'm sure he will now abort, there is something special about this boy which isnt so prominent in other players. It is his ability to be found with the ball in the right places. Each time Fashion Sakala is on the ball, it is always either in the perfect position
Zambia had a disappointing outing in Namibia and the coach is already showing some disturbing signs of inneficiency. He had a team but messed it to a point of near no redemption. He can't claim to know our football and players better than Zambians know. When Fans advise him he should learn to listen. The 1 -1 draw in Namibia is a bad start for Sven as the new chipolopolo. Here is how our boys faired. 1. KENNEDY MWEENE 4/10 He had very little to do in the goal. The veteran showed great leadership but when we needed him the most, he failed us. He could have done better in preventing that ball from zooming past him into the net. He was too casual
