    No one new that Zambia would go to the finals apart from the Zambians who believed in the team they sent to Gabon EQT Guinea AFCON 2012. Its high time people learnt that football is not played on paper. Many labelled Zambia as under achieve, where are the big teams which under rated the might Zambia. I am proud to be a Zambian, Na jivunia kuwa MuZambia.

    The swift do not always win the race

    Hope we will wake up finally and realize that the only way Ghana can win tournaments again is when we go back to the glorious days of having real predatory strikers who were only interested in putting the ball into the net. It’s not about playing fine soccer, it’s about putting the damn ball into the net. These so called strikers are a joke indeed.
    Remember Peter Lamptey, George Alhassan, Kwesi and Dan Owusu, Opoku Nti, Opoku Afriyie, Anas Seidu, Simmons Awuah, Kingston Asabir, Tony Yeboah, Abedi Pele…the list goes on and on. Van Persie is doing it in the Premier League in England so it’s still doable. How about the GFA assigning someone like Tony Yeboah and maybe Opoku Afriyie strictly as strikers coach for the Black Stars; or maybe having a grooming team only for strikers to be incorporated into the national team when the time is right. We can spend gazillions on so-called foreign coaches who come with language barriers all we want. If they can’t teach the boys to put the ball in the net, then we will break everyone’s heart every time when it matters the most. Congratulations to Zambia, no small feat.

    Zambia, my last comments I made it clear that Zambia bawina chunguloo. I said, I could see Zambia to the finals. I mentioned it that Zambia is a one touch system and here we are.
    I celebrated it in Luanda kicking my books with joy in my room.

    Chipolopolo– Congratulations for dimming the stars. It was wrong for them to be bright, now the stars are rightly black, no light.

    Remember, dont KUBEBA, the elephant may hear and escape.

    Conratulations galant chipolopolo boys for a big feat, shooting the lights off Ghana by One (01) bullet.

    It is unfortunate that some International Media houses are referring to Zambia as an underdog. Surely even if yesterday’s 1-0 win against Ghana was by chance, how can an underdog 1. Top the group – (Beating favourites, Senegal 2-1) 2. Beat the host nation (under a tense situation), 3. beat Sudan ( a strong team) and above all beat the so called favourites Ghana. The problem is that as long as a team has one or two players in the famous English Primier League, then they are favouraties – Congarates to the boys – we will be waiting for you at the Airport to receive the Gold medal next week.

    Zambia is not a nonentity in African football circles. People who follow soccer history can attest to that. The current crop of soccer pundits are either young our selectively myopic.
    Zambia is a soccer nation. A spell of internal economic conditions had negatively affected our soccer. In the 70s and 80s, when Zambia was on the rise, we used to whip countries like Ghana and Nigeria. (get back to your archives). Remember, on our way to the (Seoul 88) Olympics, we thumped Cameroon and Ghana in qualifiers and at the Olympics, thumped teams like Italy and Guatemala by 4 to 0 each to progress to the 1/4 finals. Those are the heroes who perished tragedy air crash of 1993. That team which went up to the Finals in 1994 was the compatriots of the team that perished. Imagine after losing the entire first choice (save for Kalusha), the so called “second choice” could still easily reach the AFCON finals. The economy then became dipped and companies literary stopped funding football clubs.
    Now, the Economy is great and the Copper bullets are back and here to stay. In Afcon 2010 1/4 finals, Nigeria escaped by the skin of their teeth – you all saw how we made them dance around the pitch. Thing is, our striking force was still being sharpened. Prepare space – Chipolopolo is back.

    umusungu bill i quite like your very fine analysis up here. you are right, we are a soccer nation despite our economy being so drained. but as you’ve rightfully said, the economy is picking and so are our boys….i just love the new name ‘copper bullets’. they now need to shoot the ivorians out the game!

  23. Mburu- Nairobi February 9, 2012 4:30 pm

  24. frederick lomah February 10, 2012 9:34 am

    congratulations to the zambians.keep up the sky shall be ur limit

  25. Dingirai Wanda February 10, 2012 2:46 pm

    Congrats ba neba, I have always admired Zambian football. How I wish our flames could take a leaf from the Chipolopolos…we are celebrating with you and praying for you…no kubeba till you have the cup… if you shot the black stars with one copper bullet, prepare three iron bullets to kill the aging elephant…I can only see taking the cup on the land those great men perished in that air disaster 19 years ago, the only proper consolation for Zambians and all soccer loving people throughout the world! Chipolopolo buuuuu…….!

  28. Baron February 13, 2012 5:59 am

    Finally we’ ve got it. Which underdogs can go that far to get the Africa cup?????

  29. Kwesi Ansah February 16, 2012 6:02 am

    Congrats Zambia, well done; it is your time. Blackstars pick yourselves up because if at first you don’t succeed try try try again.
    Sometimes in football and in life in general one needs a bit of luck regardless of one’s form or status. It is only sad to be in the path of a man on his way to his destiny or fate; no matter how good a team is, it will not be able to stop a nation’s destiny if it is to be in their favour or their time. A perfect example is the match between Zambia and Ghana. The Ghanaians played almost 80mins around Zambia goal post and created normal day football chances and yet could not find the net. Zambia on the other hand had two attempts and scored; how fortunate can a team be(Zambia). To out play a team and not win (Ghana), how tragic. Even in football there are lessons to be learnt. ‘the race is not to the swift and the fight to the strong, but time and chance happens to them all’. Congrats Zambia. Ghana better luck next time.
