  • My advice to Zambian football is to keep these boys together with this coach. They are a team for the afcon. If this match was played in Zambia, we would have been singing a different song. I doubt if we would have won. At best a draw. This Chipolopolo is good. We love you.

    The team is just a typical african team(no flair,football football IQ and quality). Running all day in a football match cant win u matches but the technical know how and right tactics from the players and coach deployed during the encounter. The zambians relied so much on long balls and pace of their players which was nullified by the more exposed and experienced nigerians. I will advice the zambian FA to keep this team together and get a sound coach whom their present coach can leadn more from. Nigeria won the match cus the tactics and individual brilliance from our players
