” We have worked on that and I don’t expect such a thing to repeat it self in tomorrow’s match. We have done our home work, ” He said.
” We are have been fine tuning the team. We have worked on our defence and I don’t expect it to be a source of worry,” He added.
The Green Buffaloes assistant coach as also called on fans to be patient with his young team who he says is still in a developmental state.
” We need our fans to understand that these are boys who have just been upgraded from the U17 to U20 so at times when you put so much pressure on them they might become intimated. I will appeal to the soccer fans not be jeering but cheering. The fans need to be patient because the boys are just developing,” He said.
Zambia and Burundi will lock horns on Saturday, July 14th at Nkoloma Stadium before playing a return leg in Burundi a week later . The winner over two legs will qualify to the 2019 Niger U20 Africa Cup of nations tournament .
