Chipolopolo coach George “Chicken” Lwandamina is not happy with Zambia’s modest start to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign.
Zambia were on Saturday held to a frustrating goalless draw by minows Guinea Bissau in the two teams opening Group E match played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Lwandamina described Zambia’s start to the qualifying campaign as sad.
“Definitely it is a sad beginnig but the boys did all what they could but unfortunately we couldn’t just get a goal,” Lwandamina said.
Zambia missed several scoring opportunities including a stoppage time penalty missed by number one keeper Kennedy Mweene.
“I am sure there are lessons to be learnt and we hope and trust that we will be able to change things,” he added.
Zambia face Kenya in their second Group E match on September 6 in Nairobi.
Meanwhile, Lwandamina switches focus to the 2016 CHAN qualifiers this Saturday when the team travels to Windhoek to face Namibia in a first round, first leg qualifier.
The team goes into camp in Lusaka on Monday.
