Arab barriers, juju, anointing oil

Soccer Review with KELVIN KACHINGWE
ONCE again, although not entirely surprising, another Zambian team fell short after being faced with North African opposition. This time it was Zanaco.
The Bankers had performed remarkably well since appointing Chris Kaunda as coach in place of Numba Mumamba, going 12 games undefeated. But when Egyptian side Pyramids, a relatively new team but with serious intentions of being a major force in Egyptian football, came calling at Heroes Stadium on Sunday, they proved too much for Zanaco.
But this has been the experience of most Zambian teams whenever they come up against Arab opposition – you always know they will be booted out. The reasons why Zambian teams perform badly are not yet conclusive. I can speculate that it is psychological. But how about the few times we have beaten them?
I think we need to find a tactical solution to get past North Africans. Yes, it has to be tactical.
