    Wow my word! Just missed the event by few minutes. No team is underdog at this stage, but Chipolopolo must carry the day. I am relieved to the core! Thank God! I also bet for Malawi. Ghana will have to sweat if they have to go through the flames of Malawi. Angola versus Zim in unpredictable. Botswana and Mali, good luck to the Zebras.

  24. BH   July 6, 2012 at 7:33 am

    The FAZ should not sit back and simply say we are alread there.Preparations for the upcoming Zambia V Uganda match must start immediately. Otherwise you gonna wakeup with a shock. Uganda not a small team, mind you.

  25. jacob mulenga IN   July 6, 2012 at 8:24 am

    Draw at 1953 Hrs very interesting, Malawi should do the needful to upset Ghana.

  32. Bestone C   July 6, 2012 at 9:59 am

    Chipolopolo means copper bullet. It is the same bullet which killed or should I say crashed the elephants. If you doubt, ask Drogba. What can fail the copper bullets who are the major share holders of the man made crane not to beat them. When chipolopolo cames for the second match with 3 points at hand, they will remove copper components from the crane and we shall see how the so called the crane will work.

  33. Mutola Nkhani   July 6, 2012 at 10:13 am

    Go zambia goooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!We will wak’dem…

  34. banakulu chansa   July 6, 2012 at 10:24 am

  37. soccer lover   July 6, 2012 at 11:47 am

    we’ve a game, why cry 4 3points frm Sudanise? Zambia z through 2 both the world and africa cup.

  38. Patkao   July 6, 2012 at 12:09 pm

    Fair Draw but sorry for Ivory Coast, Senegal, Algeria and Libya. Two of them will miss the AFCON 2013. Malawi ensure that you engulfy the BLACK JUJU’s. Just learn some few tricks from Zambia in a serious friendly game before you play Ghana and we shall tell you the secrets.
    We need a friendly game against Uganda’s neighbour Kenya or Rwanda before taking on them.

  39. Dina   July 6, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Yes we have. Thinks like a good game is at our hands. Give them a good run for their money bullet boys.

  40. Teddyy Bwalya   July 6, 2012 at 12:39 pm

    football playing of the past is totally different with the football of present.Zambian Players lets not be complacence

  41. Phiri   July 6, 2012 at 1:15 pm

    Viva Zambia Viva Chipolopolo the cup will still be ours for a very long long time to come.

  42. Ngenda Jimmy   July 6, 2012 at 6:52 pm

    Go chipolopolo we are behind you,show them that we the champions.

  43. pastor ken   July 9, 2012 at 1:29 pm

    We need to take Uganda seriously like the statement issued by Ghana in their preparation against Malawi that it will be playing any big team we know.Under estimating them would be disastrous on our part.Go Zambia GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

  44. Ba Zambia   July 13, 2012 at 3:03 pm

    Renard should use the best and right players to get us the early and comfortable lead, not wasting time with Chamanga heavy and tired legs.

  45. elias   July 13, 2012 at 10:02 pm


  46. Socrates   July 14, 2012 at 12:38 am

    Little known teams in most cases turnout to be spoillers! ….hoping Kalaba, W.O I Chris Katongo, Chansa, Mweene, Nkausu, Sunzu, Himoonde, Mayuka, Mbola/ Musonda and Sinkala will be 100% fit during this encounter,… and hoping that Chisamba Lungu would have realised his true identity as a ‘unique one Chisamba Lungu’ and NOT a Christian Ronaldo-replica, then Uganda akawa ati pweeeeeeeeee!

  47. Socrates   July 14, 2012 at 12:49 am

    Imwe Ba Zambia twalimishiba, you do not like chamanga! …By the way Ba Zambia I wish to remind you that you missed a penalty kick in our crucial games….

  48. Masajjage   September 8, 2012 at 12:37 pm

    Uganda cranes ni moto sana.Chipolopolo ata sikiya leo
