Sichone: Chipolopolo Loss Minor Setback

Sports Sichone: Chipolopolo Loss Minor Setback

Interim Chipolopolo coach Moses Sichone has described Friday night’s friendly away loss against Mali as a minor setback.

Zambia lost 1-0 to Mali in Bamako via a 7th minute goal scored by Spanish-based striker El Bilal Toure.

“I am not worried about the score line but the most important thing is the performance of the team,” Sichone said.

“I want to commend my team we did well we played well according to instruction maybe I can say in the first half we were a bit reluctant in the midfield  where we did not try to close them down and we gave them space and time to make combinations.”

Zambia had a great chance to equalize on the stroke of halftime but Edward Chilufya’s effort was cleared off the line by Mali goalkeeper Ismael Diawara.

Fashion Sakala had a chance early in the second half and Ricky Banda too wasted an opportunity with three minutes left to play.

Meanwhile, Chipolopolo plays its final friendly game against Mali on September 26.

  1. “I am not worried about the score line but the most important thing is the performance of the team,” Dont console yourself with the scoreline. Ask Guardiola a loss is a loss is a loss

  2. Moses is already a good coach, he is not scared of risks.
    He gave Captain to Rodrick Kabwe, best choice.
    He started with Lawrence Mulenga in goal.
    He started with Miguel Chaiwa in defensive midfield.
    He stayed on touch line through out the game.

    Just give him an Indian Team manager to organize hotels…
