Fifa, Caf investigates Zambia

FIFA and CAF will investigate the Zambian fans during the World Cup qualifier against Nigeria.

The two soccer governing bodies have launched an investigation into the behaviour of the Chipolopolo fans after photographs showed the Zambian supporters displaying a banner written, ‘H.E E.C LUNGU GOD BLESS YOU’ in the stands at the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium.

This was in support of Zambian president, Edgar Lungu who has become unpopular with a section of the Zambian population.

FIFA does not allow political messages during football matches, which means Zambia could face censure.

The Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president, Andrew Kamanga, has, meanwhile told media in his country, that the association will not appeal the disallowed goal due to inadequate facts to launch the case.

He said FAZ finds itself in a difficult position as FIFA deemed a referee’s decision as final unless there is evidence suggesting the decision was influenced.

    I can be happy if we are suspended so that we learn the hard way. We have people who dont think at the helm of national integrity.

    Shame ba PF, politics in a foreign stadium ba kabolala. That’s why we lost. Some players didn’t like that foolish banner.

    No wonder we failede to beat our opponents whom we should have beaten in the first half when they were playing uncoordinated football. If those fans were given money to travel by Edgar Chagwa Lungu there was no need for that banner i saw that day.If the banner annoyed me, i wonder how many players were annoyed seeing it displayed.Let’s face it. Not every player is PF.We should not assume that they are all PF. Imagin players playing football under such provocation! PF do not rob us of victory as you have done next time.

    This is the problem of politicizing every event in the country. And surely how do you allow cadres like Kenedy Kamba to start spear heading every event that takes place in the country? Shame

      FIFA and CAF can organise a credible 2021 election, look at ECZ. They have not bothered to till us how HH’s 2100 votes went missing in Kalulushi. So shy should the tax payer continue paying you?
