Zambia’s fairytale at the African Nations Champions (CHAN) has ended in a 1-0 defeat to Sudan.

Wedson Nyirenda’s charges have had a decent outing winning two and drawing one of their group matches before coming short against Sudan.

The team succumbed to 1-0 defeat that was as a result of a defensive lapse.

The Zambian delegations will now pack their bags and head back home to reorganize and prepare for the Africa Cup qualifiers resuming in March.


  1. The country is dented with corruption, so many problems in the country. No wonder Lungu could not travel to Addis because of fearing to be asked about cholera”

  2. Fire the coach, he made too many Schoolboy errors. Why did he risk regulars with yellow cards in than dead rubber game? Why did he feature a Rookie (Mwangeni)in the centre of defence? Why did he leave Satesate and carried players who were definitely not better than him? Why did he risk taking Ngwenya who was injured early in South Africa?Why didn’t he take a suitable substitute for Mbewe? He did not want to experiment players in preliminary games but chose to do that in the quarter final game, why? Verdict: He clearly planned to fail.
    On the brighter side, my darling of the tournament was the Madudu lay often leading the supporters. She must be a student in Morocco. She did a good job!
