SHEPOLOPOLO boss Bruce Mwape has come under fire with many soccer fans calling him corrupt after leaving out a host of key players for the Morocco Africa womens nations cup.
Mwape has left COSAFA best goalkeeper Musole Ngambo, experienced Hellen Mubanga and markswoman Racheal Nachula from his final AfCON squad.
Mwape has already shown that he is playing with fire and will have no one to blame after choosing to leave out Spain based Zambian goal machine Racheal Kundananji and red hot Kazakhstan based midfield maestro Prisca Chilufya.
Hans Siloongo lamented “More reason why Shepopolo needs a female coach noti ba mudala balya using his emotions as if it’s his company. Faz must appointment a female coach and Bruce mus go😔”
And Stephaine Nakamba wondered “But why leave out this machine honestly, these coaches should know that Zambia national team is not their family business, they should select players based on merit,can that man include Rachel please,i believe it’s not too late, this is a serious tournament elo mulechita ifyabupa🙄🙄🙄”
“Bruce Mwape? whatever they call you, am giving you 24 hours to include this young lady in the shipolopolo national team or else I will organize my boys to camp at Faz so that your boss Kamanga removes you. Our women national team is not your kitchen or your pantry for you to have too much freedom of doing whatever you want on our team,” a furious Emmanuel Kangwa echoed.
The Turkey based duo of goalkeeper Hazel Nali and Misozi Zulu have been included as is the case with the China based duo of Barbra Banda and Margaret Belemu. Canada-born midfielder Penny Mulenga has not been included and is yet to receive a call from FAZ who it seems are too busy attending to other matters.
The Copper Queens will face Cameroon, Tunisia and Togo in Group B at the tournament beginning on July 2-23.
The team is expected to leave for Morocco next week for an International camp where a number of friendlies have been lined-up.
