Saturday the 28th of May 2011 is the big day! Live from Wembley Stadium in London. Zambia is no stranger to the love of football. Not only does football bring people together it also divides us. Pick your team, will it be Barcelona or Manchester United? Get ready to support them in the spirit of good sportsmanship. Then there are those who are just not into football, those who don’t get the massive build up, the euphoric excitement or the depression that ensues when one’s team does not win. For this one day you will have to move over and let football fans have their day (till the next big game that is). So here are the four best places to watch the match in Lusaka, Zambia.
