FAZ President Andrew Kamanga has expressed disappointment with the result Chipolopolo recorded against Guinea Bissau in their return match of the AFCON qualifiers.
Kamanga noted that Zambia would have held on to the lead and even scored more goals had they concentrated and not allow goals he called premature. He said this in an interview with Goal Diggers!
“It was disappointing to see them lose. A draw would have been better not a loss. We are the soccer giants of our region and we have won the AFCON title before yet we played like we were the least favourites. We also had a lot of chances that we wasted. It is really not an encouraging result,” Kamanga said.
The football chief further advised Sven Vandebroeck and his boys to settle for nothing but a win against Namibia in the next group fixture.
“I think only straight wins in the remaining fixtures can put us on the advantage. The coach and his squad should ensure we win against Namibia so that we do away with the maths that surrounds our chances of qualifying. It is not okay for a football giant to struggle to qualify,” said Kamanga.
Guinea Bissau tops group K with seven points while Zambia, Mozambique and Namibia have four points each. Top two teams in each group will qualify for next year’s AFCON.
