SUDAN WILL NOT BE EASY-WADA
Chipolopolo coach Wedson Nyirenda says Sudan will be a much tougher test than the previous encounters at the ongoing African Nations Championship (CHAN).
Nyirenda told Fazfootball.com in Marrakech that his lads would be stepping up gear in the quarterfinal tussle to ensure that they qualified into the semi finals on Saturday.
“Sudan is not a pushover team, they have been a thorn in our flesh most of the time we have played them,” he said.
“Going into this game it is not going to be easy, they gave Morocco a very good run and they are playing very well, they are highly tactical and disciplined players.”
He added: “I think we need to adhere to our tactical plan and rise up to the occasion better than we did against Namibia and these other games.”
Nyirenda said that his lads had been improving as the tournament has progressed.
“As the games are moving to the next stages, the games are getting tougher. The teams that are remaining are doing their best, the coaches must do their best and players too,” he said.
He also expressed happiness at the fortitude Marrakech has provided for the Chipolopolo having won all their matches and become the defacto home team.
