African Champions, Zambia might have been beaten but are not yet out of contention for a maiden World Cup qualification slated for Brazil in 2014.
The African Kings suffered defeat in their first competitive match since winning this year’s Nations Cup.
The stunned Chipolopolo suffered in the heat of Khartoum where Sudan won 2-nil. Zambia left without talking to the media after the game.
But team Captain, Christopher Katongo remains optimistic of the team improving its performance in subsequent games.
Katongo said that the team now needs more support than ever before to remain focused ahead of this weekend’s encounter against Ghana.
Speaking on arrival at Ndola’s Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport, Katongo contend the team is still in contention for the qualification to Brazil.
And Some soccer fans in Lusaka have expressed disappointment with Zambia’s poor display against Sudan in Khartoum on Saturday evening.
In a random interview with Muvi TV Sport, the fans have attributed the loss to a wrong technical formation of the team.
Some are however still hopeful that the team will make it to the 2014 Brazil World Cup.
The 2012 African Champions lost two-nil TO the Sudanese who they beat 3-nil in Equatorial Guinea during the Africa cup of nations quarter final match earlier this year.
