  1. Ba Wedson nanga Chisamba Lungu na Kalaba?we want to win matches not preparing fr a tournament that is stl way ahead.Teams like Egypt stl hv old and talented players to push and encourage th young ones up.Why leave them out when their performance is still tops?No wonder th Nigerians celebrated when they learnt Kalaba and Mbesuma were not in the tean.and fr sure they punished us.
