I think it was very important us to try and salvaged a win to give us a better chance as our first match didn’t go well. We welcomed our two players back from the CAF Confederation Cup final, Gift Matupa scored two goals and created another. I still believe these are two important players for us but we had to sacrifice them for the Confederation Cup because it’s also a CAF tournament.
We will be watching Tunisia and Senegal now to have a better understanding of their team.
I believed there is a lot of quality in our team and there are lots of leaders in our team.
In terms of me moving from left to right is just me trying to create opportunities for the team to score.
Fighton Simukonda (Head Coach, Zambia)
In my team everyone is disappointed because we played so well in the first half. We thought in the second half we were going to finish them unfortunately things came down, we slept and were punished.
The first half was good but the second half wasn’t because we gave them room to play around that’s why they scored. I told my boys that these guys are good in set pieces and we lacked concentration.
We came here to at least reach the semi finals but unfortunately lucky is not with us but against Senegal we are not taking things lightly because we have to win.
Lubambo Musonda (Midfielder, Zambia)
It is a very disappointing defeat. We did our very best in the first half and then in the second half we slept little bit and were punished. We have a lot to do and we need to work extra hard in our next match and defend the name of our country because we will be playing for pride. We shall play well and pick it up from there.
