    Let Kalusha Bwalya be the centre refree, Zambia must fall. Basket-mouthed Zambia should concentrate on nations cup!

    With all positive moves, creative thinking, and scintillating plans, i hope nothing can stop Super Eagles having the business of the day. We should all agree on this and pray for the sweet going.
