Chipolopolo interim coach Aggrey Chiyangi wants his players to concentrate throughout the match if Zambia is to stop conceding late goals.

Zambia allowed late goals when forcing draws against Niger (1-1) and Benin (2-2) in the weekend friendly matches played away in West Africa.

Benin scored a stoppage time equaliser on Sunday to deny Zambia a win.

‘It’s just concentration. What we need to do as we go back we have to talk about concentration levels. We have to concentrate throughout the game until the game finishes,’ Chiyangi said.

‘I think the second goal Benin scored our defenders did not challenge for the ball. I don’t know if they were waiting for the referee to blow for offside,’ he said.

Chiyangi however described the friendly against Benin as good preparation for future assignment.

‘It was a good game. Good preparation. Benin gave us a good game they played well and we also played well. It is a good foundation for the future,’ said.

  1. You mean at such level a coach has to teach old players about concertration through out the game. Amazing waooooo Zambia in the sun


    • @Justice, what are you talking about? What are managers/coach for? It’s to guide the employees focus what they are good at, and help others.
      I am slowly retiring from running Zambia, I will go into soccer.
      Chiyangi need drop Salulani and Donoshano to defense. There is no defender I remember except Kabaso Chongo, who can go back to his right-back. Zambia has only 18 midfielders, and 1 striker Daka.
      Same problem with Under 23 team, they have no defenders at all.


  2. A massacre awaits Zambia from Algeria. Chiyangi is a good coach but can’t guide Zambia to AFCON.
