its lusaka not lisaka…
Gud analysis but our own TV station not airing the games means we are the worst in SADC in terms of TV broadcasting. No cameras,no transport, no man power and yet we claim to be the best in the region. We are not dead but sleeping at ZNBC management and board.
am very disapointed with deadnbc, how van they fail to televise the game sure… this time i wont even pay k3 .
Wht were the scores
Very gd analysis and history plays a very important role in evrything.
Kkkkk My Sister kkkk
History doesn’t play the game but present. …all the same go Zambia go
Good Analyst but is your Deadnbc, beaming live the games. …..
