Beaumelle targets Burundi

Share

Zambia coach Patrice Beaumelle wants to quickly forget the 1-1 draw against Tanzania at the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup in Kenya to focus on the next game.

Beaumelle’s side on Thursday gave away a first half lead to draw with the Taifa Stars in the two team’s opening match at the regional tournament.

The French coach said he is looking forward to Zambia’s next match against Group B leaders Burundi on Sunday.

“I think the boys are learning from the mistakes as well and want to congratulate the two teams and we have to look forward to the second game,” he said.

Beaumelle predicted a tough match against Burundi who thumped Somali 2-0 in their opening match.

“It will be tough I know cecafa its always tough we have to play three games and we will see after three games,” he said.

Beaumelle added:”They won they have three points they are leading the group stage we have to beat them to look forward and to move on.”

2013 and 2012 FAZ Super League top scorer Ronald “Sate Sate” Kampamba handed Zambia a 41st minute lead before Tanzania equalized through Said Morad three minutes after the half time break.

  1. We hope that Zambia will this time around “shed off the ghost” of allowing their opponents to come from behind and hold them to a draw or beat them. This is a very good opportunity for players like Sate Sate and others to prove that they deserve permanent places in the senior team. Yes, players like Bornwell Mwape, Festus Mbewe and such others who have been give opportunities before must also prove that they are after all not the blunt strikers people have always thought they are. All in all, good luck to Zambia!

  3. Whst contract is this PE assistant Patrice on? What are the KPIs in his contract? We are making the selfsame mistakes we made with HR….why ain’t ee hiring a seasoned manager from within. Patrice id too inexperienced to manage a national team…he is HR part 2 meaning we are not going ANYWHERE.
    Wake up people. ..you want to host the AFCON yet you have no long term plans in place for the youth!

    • @Jay Jay, look at your spelling mistakes and grammar, your mistakes are worse than Patrice’s. Jay Jay, you wouldn’t even pass exam of PE teacher for Mumbwa basic school with such mistakes.
      You are calling for a local coach, just because you are racist.

    • Apologies for the mistakes was in a rush in the morning and just getting to grips with my new smartphone’s predictive texts touch screen.

LETS JUST MAKE DO WITH THIS NOW DRAW KING BEAUMULLE (BANFUCHILE) PATRICIAL OR WHATEVER NAME IS CALLED. WE HAVE A LONG WAY TO GO. LOOK AT GHANA AND NIGERIA THEY VE QUALIFIED TO BRAZIL 2014 WORLD CUP GUIDEDED BY THEIR LOCAL COACHES.

  7. CHIPOLOPOLO has slumped five places on latest FIFA rankings and now occupies 15th position in Africa and 72nd globally.
    The team, which last month was ranked 14th in Africa and 67th globally, has slumped following their 2-0 loss to Egypt, which was played on a FIFA-friendly date and earlier to Jordan 1-0 on a non-FIFA date.
    Chipolopolo’s next opponent in Cecafa competition, Burundi, is ranked 32nd in Africa and 112 globally, while Somalia is bottom-placed on the continent on 54 and 204 globally.
    Ivory Coast is still commanding top position in Africa, with Ghana, Algeria, Nigeria and Egypt completing the top five bracket.

    • Unfortunately Zambians don’t care about stats. ..They just like to worship blindly, one just to look at how long we tolerated PE teacher HR’s appalling record.
