Zambia’s next month Brazil 2014 World Cup opponents Lesotho will face South Africa in an international friendly match.

The match between the Likuena and Bafana Bafana will be played in Maseru at the Sesotho Stadium on June 1, seven days before a must win encounter at Ndola’s Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

While Lesotho will be have a friendly match, last week the Football Association of Zambia indicated that the dethroned African Champions will not be having one.

A week after hosting Lesotho, Zambia will go head to head against Sudanese at the same venue

Zambia lead the group on 7 points while Ghana is a point behind.

Group winners will advance to a two-legged playoff where the victorius countries books places to the lucrative FIFA World Cup to be hosted by Brazil.

    These id!ots at FAZ will not take Zambia to Brazil. After we fail to beat both Sudan and Lesotho in ndola then they will come up with some stup!d reasons explaining why we suck! Mxxm

    i really want zambia to go to brazil however recent results over the last 15 months or so and tactical blunders during this period have not been encouraging at all

    Zambia are favourites to win the group. The bs team which may seem to be our threat in the group are our weeping boys

    tc soccerman i also wonder where people’s optimism and overconfidence is coming from. our performances leave much to be desired qualifying for the mundial will not be easy if ghana beat lesotho and sudan. we have to pray ghana drop points.

    What is weeping boys??? Can anyone explain it to me!!! Ahhhhaaaa….. vuva the revolutioncioooooooooooooooooooo

    Go lesotho go…likuena about to chunk a piece off some zambian meat

    Faz has greatly contributed to our mediocre performances. Same in 2012 after Afcon. I stopped giving my all. I even wonder whether they qualification to Brazil as priority! I think their priority is hosting Cosafa, qualify to Chan 2014, Afcon 2015 and pirate replica jersy! Not Brazil. We need to warm up with Mbique, Malawi, Namibia, Kenya, Tanzania or Uganda coz all these will play within Sadc and Comesa regions in June!

  15. Strategist on Wed, 8th May 2013 7:42 am 

    I strongly bliv Chipolopolo can qualify for Brazil 2014,bt only when we put our house n order,e.g do away with inactive players,miraculasly fire Herve Renard coz of failure 2 read games & poor tactics e.g benchin an inform striker opting 4 a bench warmer.If FAZ can stop being useful idiots & stubon etc.With the above mentiond concerns only then can we see light @ the end of the tunnel.Oh the weepin boys can bring wateva Chimp they feel lyk we wll stl wack there a$$es.

    @john, dont worry about the current form. We shall meet Ghana in September with improved form. We shall hummer them at their own backyard. Zambia plays well with good teams while we do underate small teams, thats where the problem is. But we are used to beating Ghana as proved by recent meetings. They are even scared of us visit ghanasoccernet they are always reporting about Zambian soccer, even Keagan Mumba story is there though reported wrongly.

    Yah. Some zambians. Negativity is all that they eat drink & sleep. No wonder mayuka’s agent told us off that its becoz of this negativity that we have few players in europe

  18. Kofifi on Wed, 8th May 2013 1:25 pm 

    @Mumbi: beating Ghana in their own backyard? wow, nice optimism. well with current state your first choice players seem to find themselves in, it is going to be a tall order, a long shot. Yes Zambia has beaten Ghana two times in a row but that should not be your yard stick for measuring success at Ghana’s expense.

    Remember, Sudan will not be an easy team to beat even in your own backyard. Lesotho wont either now that they know they managed to hold you to a draw. sometimes i wish Zambians would be a bit realistic in their soccer analysis and not be blinded by patriotism. your lead is shaky and it can be dropped in the next qualifying round. here is the case FAZ is not going to play any friendlies to assess player performance but Lesotho is and i know Ghana wants to play Kenya. so with a situation like this how can u confidently say u can maintain your lead? so Mumbi, its good to be patriotic but be a bit realistic. Never underrate any team in this group. one way or the other they have all proved themselves to be teams to reckon with.

    Kofifi don’t mind mumbi, he’s just speaking from heart not his head, @mumbi, before you comment think about the reality of your situation, not what CAF has given you….this is the reality……zambia:3games played, 1 won by 1 goal, 1drawn and 1 lost 2goals scored in their entire campaign, now compare it with…..Ghana:3games played,2 won by 11 goals 1 lost no draw….so tell us, who is on form?

  20. Mumbi on Wed, 8th May 2013 5:52 pm 

    @Gb boy, what Fifa gave us counts and nobody will take it away from us. Football has rules & we’re on top with 3 games remaining with 2 home games while Ghana has 2 away games, I still mentain that Zambia are favourites.

  21. selfmade on Wed, 8th May 2013 5:57 pm 

    @ mumbi…. mumbi aka weeping boys …. ahahahhahaaaa…. this dude deserved the highest zambian award for adding new word to English language…. ahahahhaaaa… i ll called queen Elizabeth to considered WEEPING BOYS rather than the former haahahaahaaaaa…… mumbi is tooo much……vuvaaa the revolution

  22. selfmade on Wed, 8th May 2013 6:06 pm 

    I just called queen Elizabeth and she told she has just read what mumbi said and she is highly impressed by mumbi ingenuity,foresight and his high thinking abilities and she has henceforth accepted the weeping boys as the right words to describe a beaten team …. ahahahhahaaaaaa….. mumbi is the new zambian albert Einstein … hahahhahaaa….. vivaaa the revolutionciooooooooooooooooo

  23. ten. on Wed, 8th May 2013 7:18 pm 

    @ selfmade…..ahaaaaaaahaaaaaaa… selfmade u sooo funny…. hahaaaaaaa….. u cracked me to death……. please leave my bro mumbi alone…… am my friends are laughing big time

  24. selfmade on Wed, 8th May 2013 7:46 pm 

    @ ten… ahahhaaaa… if there is any Zambian i ll like as a friend,then mumbi comes first!!!… mumbi,please i want u as my friend so that i ll learn from your ingenuity… ahahhahahahaaa….. u have no size and i wholeheartedly support u on this weeping boys because if a team is consistently beaten,they weep,so ironically,they should be called weeping boyssssssss…ahahahaahaa.. mumbi is simply ingenious!!!…. vuvaaaaa the revolutionciooooo

  25. King on Wed, 8th May 2013 9:13 pm 

    Gayna will be beaten again by Zambia mark my words…and i know most of you Zambians already know the scoreline.. Does the 1-0 scoreline sound like music to your ears??? One thing i know our noisy neighbours won’t take it lightly so chances of riots might be the order of the day in Kumasi.

  26. Gh boi on Thu, 9th May 2013 10:28 am 

    @mumbi, no one is taking anything away from you, all I’m saying is that with this attitude of not realising your team is weak, but rather putting it in your head that you are top so your current form doesn’t count, it will be your undoing, we always win at sudan when we playing WC qualifies, ALWAYS, Lesotho is our “whipping boys” as you can testify and you are currently on the one way street to becoming a walk over cos your players…no HR’s players(and I mean his constant squad who he never changes) are fading out, whilst ours are claiming precious game time, AND ALL OF YOU SEEM TO FORGET THAT YOU HAVE MADE AN ENEMY OUT OF SUDAN…long and short of it is that, it saddens my heart to inform you that by the time you get to k’si morale in your camp will be soo low that you’d also get above 3 goals into your net.

  27. Mumbi on Thu, 9th May 2013 11:04 am 

    gh boy, Changes will be made to Chipolopolo squad after Cosafa cup we are hosting. Ghana will not easly win the next 2 away games, Zambia will come for serious business in Kumasi still on top after collecting maximum point in Ndola. @Selfmade, correction; ‘whipping’ not weeping which Ghana did after semi-final loss in 2012.

  28. king on Thu, 9th May 2013 11:48 am 

    I repeat ghana will be beaten in kumasi. Fear will be their undoing…this is why they are so obsessed with Zambian news…silly if u ask me cos sudan wants to deal with them to make their fans happy. Ghana will be slayn in khartoum!!

    I repeat ghana will be beaten in kumasi. Fear will be their undoing…this is why they are so obsessed with Zambian news…the fear factor ,chipolopolo is one team that will make a comfirmation that ghana are a spent force and that names don’t count.

  30. Gh boi on Thu, 9th May 2013 1:55 pm 

    Aaaawwww, zambians don’t mind king, he’s just explaining how he feels when he hears the name GHANA, cos we have been his nemesis since 2001 till date with regards to national team level….incase you didn’t know, he is that nigerian who comes to to write obscenities, initially he claimed he was zambian, and destroyed the good name of zambia, till it was later found out that he was a nigerian….but enough said about it(he is the GSN “dog”)….@mumbi, I also hope we both maintain wins till we get to the final game so as to make it a cracker cos currently you guys are sitting on sharp needles, in my opinion.

  31. Mystic on Thu, 9th May 2013 4:04 pm 

    @ Gh boi..I also believe you guys gonna be walking on thin ice come july..just to remind you that Sudan is aiming to collect maximum points when you visit them next month…Their coach is under fire following their shambolic performance in Kumasi and has vowed to make amends. So, lets just wait for the june matches before we talk too much about the Kumasi showdown.

  32. Danny Super Eagles on Thu, 9th May 2013 8:04 pm 

    Some Zambians are too mouthy sha. Just because they have beaten Ghana twice consecutively now means they are superior?? So hilarious people. If you get Ghana angry, they can spell your name for you in Kumasi then you will start knowing your BIG BROTHERS are BIG BROTHERS. Ivory coast, Nigeria, Egypt, Ghana
