Chris Katongo says Zambia’s loss to Tanzania on Saturday is a wakeup call for the African champions.
Tanzania beat Zambia 1-0 in a friendly match at the National Stadium in Dar-es-Salaam.
“The loss was a wakeup call,” Katongo told The Zambia Daily Mail.
“We are not happy that we lost . This is football we need to work hard.”
A 45th minute goal from Mrisho Ngasa settled the encounter that saw Tanzania dominate the first half before Zambia turned up a better show after the break.
“The coach wanted to see one or two or three young players,” Katongo said.
“He assessed them and knows what they can do for the team.”
