Coach Patrice Beaumelle is frustrated over Zambia’s failure to the
reach the 2013 Cecafa Cup final.
Beaumelle’s side gave away an extra-time lead to lose 2-1 to Sudan in
the semifinal in Mombasa on Tuesday.
In a post-match interview, Beaumelle said he was disappointed with
Zambia’s elimination from the Cecafa Cup.
“We are disappointed that we didn’t go to the final. We cannot blame
the boys they did the best we saw the two teams they were a bit tired
at the end of the 90 minutes so the extra time was very tough,” he
Beaumelle noted that lack of concentration costed Zambia in the
semifinal match against Sudan.
“We scored I knew we had to change to keep the balance. We could have
avoided it if we could have concentrated but we were here to learn to
expose our boys to international level today this is international
level the details.”
Meanwhile, Zambia are now set for Cecafa Cup Group B reunion on
Thursday in Nairobi when they face Tanzania in a battle for bronze.
