I feel the boy deserves to be included in the U23 team, he could be the missing part in the team. He is one player who is very lethal in front of the goal, we need to groom him now before we lose him to england. With the brilliant NIKUMONA PASS of ENOCK mwepu , the pace of Fashion sakala in the wings and the amazing strikes of Patson daka if combined with Mwiya malumo’s creativity , physic and intelligence on the ball , ZAMBIA can win the U23 afcon . This boy is also a good “super sub”.
I dont like over praising players but truth be known Mwiya is just brilliant and deserves all the accolades. The problem with Zambians is that, many lack patience to wait for a player to deliver. Everyone expects instant results. This is what is killing Zambian football. When Zambia won afcon everyone expected them never to lose again, like really? And when they lost, boom they labelled them as idiots. This is the same thing that happened to mwiya, when he was called for the u20 qualifiers people expected him to score hundred goals and single handedly take Zambia to u20 afcon. Are you really sane?
I know , because of the “pull him down” syndrome in most Zambians , they will say he is not a good player. But trust me, If mwiya is brought in the u23 team, there will be competition within the team which will lead to players putting in their whole to maintain their number. That’s what good teams do. Currently, the likes of mwepu , daka and co, have no competition on the bench and are too comfortable.
Include this boy in the U23 squad and thank me later.
