Wedson Nyirenda has apologized to the Chipolopolo fans for Sunday’s loss after the massive support and turnout at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola.
Zambia’s 2018 FIFA World Cup Group B qualifying campaign suffered a first day setback when they lost 2-1 at home against Nigeria.
“I think I have to apologize to the fans, they are very good people, they gave us support from the first whistle and they were chanting for us throughout but football being what it is we disappointed them after giving away the two goals in the first half,” Nyirenda said.
“We are going to compensate to give the fans what they deserve.”
Nyirenda next game will be an away Group B game against second placed Cameroon on November 12.
Zambia are bottom of Group B with zero points, Cameroon and Algeria are tied on one point after they drew 1-1 while Nigeria top match day one on three points.
