Blunder At Football House with the barclays cup finalist. Here are the reactions.
Football Association of Zambia revealed the 2018 Barclays Cup participants but to everyone calculations Green Eagles was left out. In the place of Geen Eagles Lusaka Dynamos was picked.
Barclays Cup is an annual cup held by Football Association of Zambia and sponsored by Barclays Bank Zambia. Currently Zanaco are the defending champions. In 2017 Zanaco lifted the trophy after beating Napsa Stars 2-1 at National Heroes Stadium.

Reactions to FAZ 2018 Barclays Cup
“Lusaka Dynamos should not be anywhere near the Barclays Cup this season” Mutheliso Phiri
GREEN EAGLES WILL PLAY BARCLAYS CUP
This has been trending and I have tried to look at various angles and none gives Lusaka Dynamos a slot in the Barclay’s Cup.
There is no criteria whatsoever that can push Lusaka Dynamos into the Barclay’s Cup.
With that said let’s conclude this was an error and it needs to be corrected to send Green Eagles back to the last eight of the Barclay’s Cup.
FAZ is a listening institution and am sure they will give us Tue signal….. Bwezani Mbewe
