FORMER national team right-back Laughter Chilembe has urged interim Chipolopolo boss Beston ‘Quick Silver’ Chambeshi to work on the porous Chipolopolo defence ahead of the World Cup qualifiers to enhance the team’s chances of making it to Qatar next year.
During the qualifiers for the Cameroon Africa Cup of Nations, Zambia conceded 12 goals in four matches.
The Chipolopolo were among the five teams with the weakest defences during the qualifiers. The only other countries with the worst defence were Sao Tome, who allowed 16, Libya (15), Niger (13) and eSwatini (13). Chilembe, an overlapping right-back during his heydays, said Chambeshi has enough ammunition in midfield and striking force and should concentrate more on tightening the defence, which has not looked convincing in recent times. “
