Our Destiny is in Our Hands: Renard
Our Africa Cup destiny is in our hands says Herve Renard.
Zambia on Tuesday play face their biggest Africa Cup test when they take Burkina Faso in a must win Group C match at Mbombela Stadium in Nelspruit.
Renard side must beat Burkina Faso while a draw will spell doom for the defending champions who could end a 20-year record that saw Algeria fail at the same stage in 1992.
“Of course we have more pressure than Burkina Faso meaning that they only need a draw,” Renard said.
“We are strong enough because we know this situation.”
Renard said the team could repeat its 2010 feat of qualifying with one draw, a defeat and a win.
“In 2010 we drew 1-1 against Tunisia, we lost to Cameroon and we beat Gabon and we learnt a lesson,” Renard said.
“Now we have our destiny in our hands.”
