Chipolopolo disappoint Scott

HONE SIAME reports:
VICE-PRESIDENT Guy Scott has urged the national team players to build on their confidence if they are to beat Cape Verde in Wednesday’s 2015 Morocco Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Praia.
Speaking in an interview in Ndola after witnessing Zambia’s barren draw against Mozambique, Scott said the Chipolopolo lacked confidence.
He said there is need for players to build on their confidence if they are to find the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying campaign easy.
Scott, who is disappointed with the draw, said he expected the Chipolopolo to start their campaign on a winning note.
He said the draw has left the Honour Janza-tutored Chipolopolo under pressure to beat Cape Verde in Praia.
He said the match against Cape Verde will not be easy and that the technical bench should rectify the lapses that made it difficult for Zambia to beat the Mambas.
“We needed to start with a bang but our players lacked confidence. They need to play with more confidence in their next game against Cape Verde if they are to come back with a positive result,” said Scott, who was accompanied by his wife Charlotte.
And Minister of Youth and Sport Chishimba Kambwili said not all is lost for Zambia.
Kambwili said players failed to apply themselves fully and that the draw should make them work hard in the next match against Cape Verde.
“This wound Mozambique has inflicted on us should be enough leverage for us to do better in Cape Verde. We still have a long way to go in this qualifying campaign, which is played on league basis,” Kambwili said.
Football Association of Zambia president Kalusha Bwalya said there is still room for improvement.
Kalusha, who had difficulties in giving his reaction, said the result was disappointing.
