  1. congratulation the chipolopolo boys well done guzy and you have made us proud again. Though in the first half you were out of play, as if you did not know of what to do. You wake up from the slumber of the second half when you realized that you are on the chopping board, for sure if you did not win the Burundi game you were going to be booted out for sure. Team’s spirit is good, when you work together with one another not what the Christopher katongo does when he has the ball he does not want to pass it on to another player who is unmarked. well done once more.
