Kalusha regrets loss to Tunisia
Lusaka, January 23, ZANIS–Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) president Kalusha Bwalya has described Zambia’s loss to Tunisia at the ongoing 2015 Africa cup of nations (Afcon) tournament as painful.
Bwalya told fazfootball.com that it was painful to lose in a game which the Chipolopolo boys dominated and played very well.
Tunisia last night came from behind to beat Zambia 2 -1 in the second Group B match at the Equatorial Guinea 2015 Africa Cup of Nations played at the Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin.
Striker Emmanuel Mayuka put the Chipolopolo in front in the 60th minute but Tunisia responded in the 70th and 88th minute with goals from Ahmed Akaichi and Yacine Chikhaoui respectively.
And Chipolopolo coach Honour Janza has told Cafonline that his lads paid a price by failing to convert the chances they had saying the result has since put the team in a difficult situation.
His Tunisia counterpart Georges Leekens said his team deserved to win the game because his players became more responsible in the second half.
Leekens said his team will now treat the final group stage game against the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) like a final match.
Zambia has one point from two matches while Tunisia has gone to the top of Group B following a nil all draw between Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Cape Verde in the game played last evening.
DRC and Cape Verde have two points each.
Zambia’s final group stage match will be against Cape Verde at the Nuevo Estadio de Ebebiyin on January 26.
