We played the way we wanted to play and planned. I knew Guinea has very fast players, but my defenders were firm and watertight, being the only team which never conceded a goal. We created some chances but failed to score. We did our best but we did not put away our chances. We played with two strikers and our intention was to finish the game in regulation time.
I will continue if the people who gave me this opportunity want me there. The employers will be able to make a decision on my behalf
Christopher Katongo (Captain, Zambia)
Congratulations to Guinea for qualifying for the next round. Every team at the semi-finals has a chance of winning just as Guinea. We created some chances which means we could have finished the game earlier, but we lost penalties.
Mohamed Kanfory Bangoura (Head Coach, Guinea)
I’m very satisfied and the players exhibited mental toughness. I’m very proud of my players. Our objective was to go past the group stage. We achieved that and now we are in the semis. The objective now is the final. DR Congo is a strong and we expect them a tough match against them.
