Bwale talks winning Cup and Benching fan favourite Mwiya
Zambia U20 national team coach Charles Bwale says his team showed some glimpses of what they can do and even win the cup.
Zambia started poorly in the first half but later improved and managed to score two goals in the second half courtesy of substitute Prince Mumba.
“In the second half we saw some glimpse that we have a team that can do a lot of things even wining the cup, ” he said.
England based striker Mwiya Malumo started the match from the bench and was cheered on when he was about to enter the field of play.
Bwale says he knew they would be given pressure to put in him in the match way before the game started.
” We knew from the start that we will have pressure from the start on benching Mwiya but we need brace ourselves for that and endure because we are technicians and know what’s happening on the field of play. We know who can start and who may come in. Mwiya is a good player yes but in this game it was ideal to start with Emmanuel Mwinde though he did not show his true character but he is a good player,” he said.
“Mwiya is a good player so is Mwinde but you can only use one player at a time,” he added.
Zambia lead group A with three points and will next take on DR Congo on Thursday before facing Mozambique in their final group game a day later.
