Mwape Stays Positive Despite Shepolopolo’s Olympic Bashing

Sports Mwape Stays Positive Despite Shepolopolo's Olympic Bashing

Shepolopolo coach Bruce Mwape is positive his team will improve after starting the Tokyo Olympics outing in Japan with a loss to the Netherlands.

The Zambian Women on Wednesday kicked off the Olympic Games campaign with a 10-3 loss to the Netherlands in Tokyo.

In a post-match interview, Mwape said the team did not follow the game plan against the Netherlands.

“We didn’t play well. We didn’t play according to plan. But this is not the end of the World,” Mwape said.

He said Zambia wants to bounce back in their second Group F match against China on Saturday.

“We have the next game against China in which we must make amends for mistakes made in the first game. We should make sure that we play well to motivate ourselves for the last group game against Brazil,” he said.

China lost 5-0 to Brazil in the other Group F match played on Wednesday.

“We should try to finish on a good note or advance to the next round,” Mwape said.


  1. t just shows that the preparations were not enough and our girls wont go far. That 10-3 bashing will have negative effects on the players as they feel inferior. I hope the technical bench will work on that aspect.

  2. Scoring 3 goals against a team that scores 10 against you is an interesting result for various reasons. Among them, these scenarios are possible:
    1. Their striking force is very good.
    2. Our defense is very bad.
    3. Their defense is bad.
    4. Our striking force is good.
    Nonetheless, the ZNWT is very weak – I expected this result. Our girls are very slow and technically inferior. There is a lot of work to be done. The boys did not qualify for the Olympics, but had they qualified, they would not have conceded 10 goals to any team.

  3. Shepolopolo is just there to participate.That
    Itself is an achievement .We cannot match
    These levels.On the good side we have some
    Individual talents.
